Hi, I recently replaced broken Dell Altec Lansing 5.1 ADA995 speakers with klipsch promedia 2.1 speakers. The sound quality for mp3's was excellent with the Dell speakers, however I was very unsatisfied with the Klipsch promedia.

Can anyone suggest high quality audiophile computer speakers in the $200 - $500 price range?

I have read about Audioengine 5, Axiom Audiobyte v3 Computer Speakers, audioengine A2, and AVI ADM9. I'm not sure how high quality speakers will sound with mp3 since they reproduce sound accurately. Would these speakers sound alright with mp3? If not, any suggestions?

thanks

I have heard AE 5 and that's great VFM. What bitrate mp3s you have got? IMO anything above 192kbps is good.

Mostly 192kbps unfortunately.

How do the AE 5's sound with 192kbps mp3?
How does the bass sound? Is it loud?

I have tried many including A3, A5, studiophile, edirols but no one can beat Swan M200MKII in terms of musical quality, build quality...A class apart...and that too at a modest price...

Unfortunately the Indian distributor does not keep this model....

basically I'm looking for speakers that won't expose the low fi quality of 128 or 195 mp3's. Speakers that will sound good even with low qulity formats, any suggestions?

I had Altec Lansing 2.1 speaker system, model ACS300, purchased in 1996, but hardly used. Yesterday I took it out from the attic and connected to Tata sky set-top box and the overall sound-quality was quite good. Since these speakers are magnetically shielded they can be placed close to the TV.
