I got some M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Powered Speakers from Amazon. They're a big step up from my $40 Logitechs. I also ordered a USB DAC, but I'll make another post of that, after it arrives. And some new headphones; yet another post.
The new speakers are on the low end of Hifi equipment, but they sound good to me, have some sound stage, and get very loud (20 watts per channel). In preparation for their arrival, I re-imported about 120 of my CDs, in Apple Lossless format.
Choosing speakers is hard. So many choices. The Audioengine A2 speakers are similar. I chose the M-Audio because it has a volume knob, Aux In, and Phono jack on the front. I was tempted by the Audioengine A5 and M-Audio BX5A, but didn't want to spring that many bucks right away. Will likely upgrade in a year or so.
