Desktop Speakers

Recommended Posts

I have a pretty cramped setup here. I need a pair of desktop speakers (wired via a Dragonfly Red USB DAC) for my home office. This would be near field kind of listening (like 18 inches). What are the best speakers that I could find that would fit inside a roughly 6" x 6" x 8" (front to back) space (single speaker) for general listening purposes? I would prefer black, but ...  Assume $400 or less - there is only so much that you can do in that kind of space.

These are too big for my application as are the smaller AM3's. But for completeness https://www.soundstagesimplifi.com/index.php/equipment-reviews/155-psb-alpha-am3-powered-loudspeakers - if I had a tad more space I would be interested.

What were your final pickers?


The audioengine A2 line are the only ones that I have seen that fit well into my space requirements. The Bose Companion III Series II was an interesting alternative if I could find a place to stuff a subwoofer.  I would have to buy that one used (no longer in production). 


Still mulling this over.

Drop in if you want a listen.

Adelaide, Australia:)

 On the off chance that Australia doesn't make my travel plans this month ( 🤑 ) which set of speakers do you have (or do you have both). Do you have any comments (particularly if you have significant experience with both).
