Sound system

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

For my B-Day, if I don’t get an iPhone 11, I’ll probs ask for a sound system. What would be a budget sound system for like, $500-700 I could ask for as an alternative? Thanks.


Just say @Boinbo if you need me! I'll be limited to GPU, CPU, general discussion, peripherals, and new builds and planning though. I'm a potato.

Thank you

I would look at the Klipsch line.  The Quartet speakers and THX.  Also they use Klipsch speakers in most movie theaters and what not.

Any specific models? I’m a noob in the audio field, sorry

for 700 ish I would take a look at some powered monitors and an interface/balanced DAC with volume control, I'm getting a pair of the JBL LSR308 Mk 2's in a couple weeks for my PC, so could post my listening impressions.

 

Also, take a look at the Kali Audio P6's, they are supposed to be amazing, they also have RCA in so you could get a cheap-ish DAC with volume control.

 

Another option is going with something from Edifier, such as the S3000 Pro's, these are supposed to essentially be endgame for most people. https://www.amazon.com/Edifier-S3000Pro-Audiophile-Active-Speakers/dp/B07L6RXHQ6/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=Edifier+s3000&qid=1573321782&sr=8-2

 

 


If you have any questions about ultra high end audio, dont be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Yes my audio stuff is 435,000 USD, I'm a dedicated audiophile/mastering engineer

 

(if you want to see my audio setup, check my profile, it's too much to list here)

Thanks so much! I’ll bookmark this for my birthday later!

Np :) I'll post some impression here on the 22nd most likely. Or you could DM me.

Wait, what’s an impression? Sorry if it’s a noob question 🙃 also, will a 5 or 6” speaker work? Having both 8” makes it a bit expensive

Impression is essentially my opinions on them.

 

The 5 and 6 inch ones will work totally fine aswell. The rest you still buy.
