I am looking for a new pair of speakers for my computer(have Logitech X-230, have had them for over 10 years)

I would use it most of the time for movies/videos/music and gaming.
So far Aperion pc speakers have caught my eye. Altough they do not come with a subwoofer which I would really like when getting new pair of speakers!

My budget: < 600$

Also as I live in EU, we get here sky high import taxes from all incoming stuff outside it, so preferably if possible would buy from EU seller.

Also sorry for my english, it is not my first language, thanks in advance.

This would be a nice alternative: http://www.soundshop.ee/?id=2529&toode=5.1%20Kodukino%20ressiiver%20Pioneer%20VSX-330

or this


http://www.soundshop.ee/?id=2158&toode=5.1%20Kodukino%20ressiiver%20Sony%20STR-DH550

I would recomend the sony but if it is too much then the pioneer is nice too.


Ok and as for speakers for teh start i would go with 2 of this http://www.soundshop.ee/?id=2551&toode=Taga%20Harmony%20Azure%20v.2%20B-40

The home cinema i recomended is compatible with teh speakers i recomended, for the home cinema i recomended to you they work on speakers with impedance between 6 and 16 ohms
 
I would suggest getting real speakers. There are self powered models like these
Wharfedale Active A1
Focal Alpha 50
You could also get an integrated amp and passive speakers in that price range. Visit an audio shop if there is one near you. They often have trade ins that offer great value,
Don't worry about the sub yet since you can always add one. A lot of subs aren't really subwoofers. They just add the upper bass missing from tiny satellite speakers.

Could you take a look and see if this website has any interesting speakers in my budget area:

The page is not in english, but should be understandable I hope. Thank you :)

Try Amazon site for your country if you want to avoid import duties, that way it's Amazon (or their suppliers) who are importing the product, not you. I buy almost all my PC-related gear from Amazon, plus their buyer reviews are very useful in helping to avoid buying poor-quality or unreliable stuff.

I looked it up on amazon, they are same expensive as they are in my local store, my problem is just a amplifier, and on this uk site I linked here was all bundle with amp 430€! So thats why i wanted to buy from taht site cause when buying from my local store I would have to spend atleast over 150€ on amp alone.
My only concern is taxes, altough I am i Europe so yeh.

That amp is a complete waste of money, get a good amp (around 200 euros), and a nice pair of speaker around 250 euros, later on add a subwoofer (eventually wireless). With a 200 euro amp and 250 euro speakers you are in your budget. Trust me, you can find nice set of speakers for 250 euros.

Take a look at my speakers: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/cWmqqs , scroll images until you reach to my home cinema. They are made by me and cost me (all 6) around 300-350 euros with subwoofer and separate amp for subwoofer and the sony home cinema another 190 euros.

Well, okay but Im afraid I will need your help than finding the most suitable ones for me, and also I would really like to make purchase from my local store. Would be awesome if you can go trough couple of my store websites where they sell amps and speakers as I have literally no idea which would be up my alley, man we could even voice chat in two days when I get more time, than I could explain more about what i listen, room layout etc, if you want ;)
