I'm surprised I haven't seen a home theatre/speakers thread here. If anyone's looking, can I get some advice?

Looking for speakers under £100 (GBP). I've got a Scarlett 2i2 audio card, so I'm torn between getting

5.1 (Logitech Z506 come to mind)


A pair of studio monitors (M Audio AV 40s)
and later maybe a subwoofer.

I'll be using them for film, music, games, mixing, synth programming... Everything basically.

If this is the wrong place to post, I'm sorry.
No sir, there are no people who touch little boy----oh you said speaker-philes.

Check ebay, man.

no he means speakers like andrew wk
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
Ah, the Pit's prepubescent tries at toilet humor.. Some things never change.
The Recording subforum might be a better place to ask.

That being said, you mightn't want to get something that say "monitors" just for the sake of it for that price. The first ones I'd recommend are KRK Rokit 5 G2's. I've got a pair and their bang for the buck. For that budget I'd suggest getting something not geared towards music production.

Seriously, listen to your music like a man. Used Sansui receiver, used Pioneer HPM 100 speakers. ~$700 USD. Worth every bit of it.
I'm a little bit of an audiophile, depends on my situation, however, this is my set:

love these.

havent bothered to get a nice setup for my tv yet though.
Sell and Promote your music TuneHub!

This lol

I seem to be one of the only people who don't like rokits, they have a way hyped low end, and the mids aren't really that clear - alright for the price though.

You aren't going to get very good speakers for that price. Either save up, or just get whatever sounds best to you
