Hi!

What about using a couple of BX8 as computer speakers?

I always liked very much hifi music and I'm trying to setup a good
system with my computer.

I'm waiting for a PowerMac G5, I'd like to get a nice-sounding audio
card (I think M-Audio firewire 410) and I was wondering if makes sense
to use the bx8s as main spekaers!

I mainly record from tapes and vynil LP's and (try to) restore them!

Please let me know!

Sure, why not?

But haven't you got a decent hifi setup already? Why do you need a
separate sound system?

Because when using the computer I'm not in the centre of the stereo
sound. I'm really close to the left speaker and more than 2 metres away
from the right one. And at the moment I can't change the placement. Plus
I'd like to have separate systems and be able to just turn on the
computer and the speakers without powering the other gear.

I have a Rotel RA980BX amp with Canton loudspeakers (from germany), I'd
prefer having a bass reflex system for working with audio and to play
dvds, mp3 ecc ;-)

The doubt is:
BX8 or DX4?

The DX4 are for Desktop operation..... ok, right..... but cost less than
half the BX8, so I think that BX8s are much better..... can you help me
on this dilemma? ;) 

bye! :D
