I have an antiquated yet tenacious Dell Dimension 8300 w/ integrated sound. but I am soon to get a decent laptop. Where should I begin looking toward a versatile and reasonably priced sound system suiting either machine. It should preferably include tweeters, midranges, and a woofer considering many of my audio files are in FLAC ~1,400kbps.
$75-100; I'm looking to invest more into a good headset in the near future. If you believe this budget is not adequate, I'll be willing to increase it by a quarter hundred, but only with sufficient evidence. Thanks!
After dedicating a reasonable amount of personal research and receiving recommendations via other tech forums and an electrical engineer scholar, there are substantial red flags indicating 2.1/5.1 PC designated audio systems ranging from $50-150--exempli gratia: Creative Labs, Klipsch, Logitech, & Sony--are inferior to more costly monitor/bookshelf systems. If this is further corroborated, it seems increasing my budget will reciprocate favorably.
