Is that your desktop rig, Bob?  Looks pretty sweet!  Make and model of the speakers?

Yes Sir, this is my PC desk. It's what I call "Second row, center seat" to the main 2 channel and HT rig right in front of me.
My absolute favorite PC planar speakers died recently when I knocked one on the floor and broke a magnet.  :duh:

In search of something in the $100 range, I found these on Amazon. I'm day two into them, and so far, think my hundred bucks was well spent.
The speakers are something I've never heard of. Here's the link. Not giving them my official "seal of approval" just yet.

The first 30 minutes they played yesterday, I was ready to box them up and send them back. I've let them play at a medium-highish volume for 24 hours, and tonight I'm giving them a "second impression", so to speak. Regardless, they're $99. I think they're keepers, but since I bought them "Prime", I've got 30 days to try them out. If they don't work out, I've since found a $99 pair of Klipsch I'll try.
They seem to recreate sounds very well, but that "veil" we all talk about does seem to be present. In the spirit of honesty, that tube amp isn't actually hooked up right now. I just turned it on for visual effect. I need to make a pair of cable that are RCA and banana.
Sorry about the "artistic licence" I took there.  :wink:

For anybody that cares, I can give final impressions of the speakers in a week or two.

Oh... Also, in the interest of honesty and all that, The image on my monitor is from Brad Simmons (his 'signature' in the lower right corner).
He's one of my BBQ forum guys. I stole that image from the "Picture of the Day" thread there. No. I'm not proud.   :oops:

I've been hearing good things about Edifier recently. This Youtube audio reviewer, Zeos Pantera, likes the $400 S2000 Pro (active, with DSP) very much... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YFIMME0j0Q

Will be interested to hear what you find with the ones you picked up.

While I'm at a price point MUCH lower than his, I will say I'm warming up to these speakers. I'd love to give the $400 ones a test drive, but that's not in the cards right now.
For a cheap Chinese unit, they're impressive so far.
Oh.... and they have tone controls, which is awesome.  :icon_twisted:
