Hey.

I would like to replace my Fujitsu Sound System DS S2100 (received as gift some time ago). I need an advice on what speakers (studio monitors?) to buy.

Some key points of what I expect:
  • stereo speakers, either 2.0 or 2.1 (I have a nice spot for a subwoofer now)
  • front bass reflex (speakers will be wall mounted)
  • no humming or any other noise while speakers are idling (i am sensitive on coil, tv whine etc)
  • speakers will be used for quiet listening and will be situated approximately 1m from my head. I will rarely use a quarter of its power probably
  • will be used mainly for watching movies and series, but also gaming and music
  • long cable is required or easy, affordable cable replacement at least (will need about 5 meters because I want to hide the cable nicely)
  • remote control would be nice
  • I expect clear sound from it. With my current speakers I have troubles understanding dialogues.
  • will be plugged to Creative X-Fi XtremeMusic (probably will upgrade it soon too, I want to be able to plug both speakers and headset to it)
  • about 150-200$ max, possibly less
  • smaller and lighter means cheaper mounting solution (so let's say more moneyz for speakers)

I have considered few options, but there is always "something":
- Microlab Solo 6C - rear front bass refles
- Edifier 2.0 R1600TIII - I fear it might be hard to mount them
- Edifier 2.0 R2600 - short, custom cable + noise

Please, help. Hopefuly speakers you recommend will be available in Poland (and in affordable price)

The microlabs may be your best bet. One of the very few sets with a remote control.

Your only good options are in passive speakers. Using computer speakers for this purpose carries no advantages.

$150 ~


polk T15 speakers (I own these... not using them now but they are pretty decent and are on sale for $49.98~ now at bb)

however they are passive so you'd need an amp...

$99~ Gracedigital GDI-BTAR122

on the upside you could use that with your smrt phone (or other Bluetooth devices).. and i has a remote I have heard good reports from people that have tried the GD amp.. there is also a more powerful version that would be better but put you over budget.


if you could live without the remote you could do this much cheaper with a Lepai 2020A+
