I'm looking for a new set of speakers. My purpose is gaming and music equally. The music i like is diverse. Yes, the prices of the two are really different but that's not a problem. Will the m200mkii really not provide a good bass at all? How is m10's audio quality compared to m200mkii, i know they're audiophile grade speakers but is the difference a lot? I know i'll have to compromise somewhere or the other but if the bass if okay enough to play games and watch movies with a satisfactory experience, then I'm looking forward to it.

Any other options are welcome - except Klipsch promedia 2.1 and audioengine a2+ as they are prices 400$ and 550$ here respectively.
The m10s are 110$ here and m200mkii 270$ so thats under my budget. m200mkiii are 500$ so they are out of my budget.

You won't get any more bass from the M10 than you will from the m200mkii. They are not in the same league for audio quality and the tiny little subwoofer of the M10 is simply trying to fill in the bass below 100 Hz that the small satellites cannot reproduce.

You say the m200mkii is too expensive, so which model are you looking at other than M10?

The m200mkii speakers are monitor quality stereo speakers. Very good reproduction from 53 Hz, but no sub woofer.
The D1080MKII are the cheaper alternative.

The M10 get pretty good reviews for a 2.1 system, but the subwoofer is very small and designed to be on the desk.
The M50W 2.1 system is their premium 2.1 system with top quality sound and a much bigger sub.
The M-20W are in the middle.

I tried the logitech Z623 as a cheaper alternative. I hated them. There was booming bass but no mid range. The sound was also very muddy. I went back to using headphones when I wanted decent sound.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. The m200mkii is within my budget. I've changed it now.

From what I've heard m50w has very muddy midrange, I dont find m20w a worth upgrade from m10, so its really between m10 and m200mkii for gaming and music alike. Particularly skeptical about m200mkii's bass for games.
