trying to make a 2.1 channel speaker system , can any body help in finding a proper amp and speakers
you really believe in the PC audioengine 5 combo huh?
you realy think its good enough to stack up against the regualr NAD/marantz - warfedale/PSB/ etc combos ?
Is the sq from trh audioengines really so good
The Audioengines cost Rs. 20K. They will beat most (maybe all) speakers that cost Rs. 20K. For true audiophile SQ you'll have to invest a lot more in say something like the AVI ADM9.1 that I've gone with. But yes at their price point the Audioengines are unbeatable. You will hear new sounds in them, that much I can guarantee. Put in great content like FLAC/WAV rips and an Asus soundcard and you'll not go wrong.
this has got me intrigued
i must go and audition them now!
im quite surprised that audioengines A5 costing 20k with and internal amp insde them would be able to beat a 20kspeaker 20k amp ( total 40k) combo.
Why should anyone buy warfedales NAD's marantz etc now?
why are people spending 40-50k on their amps speakers cables when these would be easier to purchase use and hear?
whose giving audioengine A5 audition is mumbai
here i come
first of all thanks to all for showing such great intest .
i want to make a 2.1 system my self ,dont want to purchase it.
i read about some 68watt rms amp based on lm3886.
so if any body could help me in making my own 2.1 channel amp and recommend me in using the necessary speakers.
i live in mumbai, so i travel to lamington rd for my electronic needs
Truly they're an amazing product at their price point. I've even configured them as fronts in a HT setup, they're that good. Just Google for their reviews and you'll find tons of reviews about them and all good/superlative reviews. I've not come across any negative reviews about them.
Moser - I am beginning to think that the Audioengines get such rave reviews since the buying segment / reviewers are all comparing them against computer speakers. True, in that league, they must be class leaders. But have people done a side by side blind comparison against amp+bookshelves costing even twice that much? I doubt it ... i didnt come across such a review.... maybe thats the gap then, eh?
