I love music and play online games at the same time. Can you recommend quality speaker at this price point?

You're probably going to be looking for used speakers at that price point. DO you want powered or passive speakers?


No electron left behind...

Yeah.. I spoke to my friend this morning who's into hobby for years... he said I won't go that far with my budget...

 

He suggest $400-500 for a good start...

Right. For some active speakers you might not need a DAC, you definitely don't need an amp with actives. But you also have the option of a 'Full Digital Amp' which takes a digital input and feeds passive speakers without need of a DAC.

These passive speakers out of Shenzhen are under $110/pair. But you'll need to find yourself a Taobao agent to execute the transaction and the shipping might absorb most of the rest of your budget. I've bought a couple of pairs, excellent value.

I didn't know that, thanks for the heads up. I'll be sure to link to AE next time as its way more convenient for buyers outside China. 

 

I see the price is considerably raised and the shipping is eyewatering! No longer within the OP's budget.

Look at PSB, Elac, and Emotiva. Lots of good choices of both types of speakers. Don't have to worry about shipping from China, either.
