Just wondering, which desktop speakers will you be using (or do you already use) with the Spectrum display? Since it has no built in speakers.
I have a 5.1 (originally 7.1) surround sound system with .2 additional ceiling speakers coming soon. Audio is extremely important to me so my setup is entertainment focused + game immersion for games with properly mixed audio (ex: Last of Us II easily one of the BEST audio designs in gaming history).
IMO it’s worth the setup if you have the space for it. Otherwise desktop speakers I used to use are bookshelf speakers from Klipsch.
For my gamer buddy I got him logitech z606 - very affordable and delivers decent sound at decent ranges at 5.1 surround and he really enjoys it.
Look into the Razer Leviathan soundbar. I’ve been using it for about a year and it’s been fantastic. Comes with a powerful subwoofer too. I usually keep it unplugged unless I’m going to watch movies. No need for that much bass when consuming any other media.
Using Edifier G2000 speakers, have quite the punch and provision for a sub out if you want to go 2.1
Saw this the other day and given the choice, I’d pick this over the Razer Leviathan. I prefer the volume knob over these small clicky buttons.
I can fully recommend the Audioengine A2+
Super small footprint, great sound, good connectivity and clean design
I ended up going for the Kanto YU2’s which are quite similar to the A2+ (no bluetooth) and they’re amazing, love them.
i have a AE-7 Creative sound blaster card for audio. I do also have a panasonic soundslayer but i dont use it for gaming. i only use it for 4k movies since the soundbar supports dolby atmos.
I have an AE-7 soundcard sending analog out to a NAD 3020v2 integrated amp. Have some Dali Spektor 1 bookshelves and a Rel T/5i sub.
Went with clrelatively cheap Creative T100s. Clean look, optical + BT connectable. Good enough for the times when I am not wearing headphones.
