Hi All,

I am little bit confuse to buy a new 2.0 or 2.1?

I am searching for good speaker, Budget below 10k, but extendable, if good

In my home TV (KDL-32W670A) & System (HP Pavilion 23CW) in different room..When ever watching movies, I swap the speaker system accordingly. So kindly suggest match with those both configurations.

My Preference order Movies>>Games>>Music-(Occasionally)

Awaiting for Reply.,

Hi,

I would strongly recommend logitech z623 for your requirements. Excellent for movies and games. Decent for music as well.

My college room mate had them. Frequently shifting them may not be easy though as the subwoofer unit is very sturdy.

Cheers
Satya

If you want portable (single piece) of equipment and open for choices, check this
F&D SoundBase T280 Grey: Amazon.in: Electronics

Nice sound within budget. You can connect both PC/TV.

Else you can go for these standard 2.1. They are also excellent.
Swans M10 (White): Amazon.in: Electronics

Swan M10-2.1
Logitech Z-623-2.1

Swans D1010MKII-2.0
Swans D1080-IV -2.0

In this list which one is good for movies>>games>>musics...

While watching action or war movies..What's the difference between 2.0 vs 2.1?

I second the Swans M10 suggestion, Swans are a cut above the general computer speaker manufacturers.
If you can go higher look at the Swans M50W as well, will serve you well.

Swans D1010MKII-2.0
Swans D1080-IV -2.0

What about this model?

But Swans M50W was triple time high

I have M50W and D-1080 IV both,

I personally prefer D1080.

M50W has bloated bass, too much :(

While watching Action or War Movies in D1080, How is it compare to 2.1 Speakers?

Compare to M10 OR M50 which you prefer?

I will suggest Mackie CR4, best value for money, awesome speakers.


I think not available in India...Any one for below 15k?

If I got D1080, I will use in PC output its enough or i will add any additional Sound Card or DAC?

If yes kindly refer any.,

Under 15k, the best i have heard are

1. Harman Kardon soundsticks (music strong point)
2. Logitech Z623 (great for movies and games, decent for music)

The ones I heard great deal but not in person

3. Swans (there are many models but priced well)
4. Edifier studio models (not available in india)

Just a note that Z623 is THX certified. Also eventhough they sound great, build has some problems. My room mate is still using them (5 yrs now) without issue but you can see reviews where others mentioned they had issues.

Cheers
Satya
