HeaDphone Discussions. (Audiophile and Gaming)

So I don't think this is the same audio quality as the Diamond 12's, but I am currently running a JBL 2.1 Deep Bass Sound Bar (Takealot) under my monitors. I couldn't get speakers situated properly with my monitor configuration, so did an impulse buy in a Stax store.

I've been using it for about 2 years now, and I am quite content with the performance. For movies and shows it is really fun, but sometimes you have to put it a bit louder than talking volume. For music it is is also quite okay, especially for casual listening. For everything else I use my headphones anyway. I mostly use the bar when I am researching or programming at night or over weekends.

I know this is not quite what you asked for, but thought it is worth a mention.
Thanks for the reply and recommendation! Honestly I haven't even thought about a solution like this, quite interesting!

If I could sensibly add 2 bookshelf speakers or monitors, I would've went that route. But the soundbar tech is pretty decent at the moment. I had the opportunity to listen to the JBL bar at Stax in Menlyn. I was honestly blown away by how it sounded, and the form factor suited my needs. So ca-ching. I'm happy with it so far.
 
Good afternoon, I know this isn't related to headphones so I apologize for that, but I tend to get really good advice on this thread.
I'm looking to upgrade to a passive speaker system for my desktop, I currently have a pair of Edifier R2000Db.
I've been looking at the Wharfedale Diamond 12.2 as an option because the reviews that I've seen seems good for the specific price range.

I see that they also have a combo where you get a AMP + the speakers (Amp speaker bundle) , but I'm not too sure if I will in the future be able to add in a sub with that current setup.

I've also thought about buying the speakers with the following amp FOSI BT30D Pro and using it together with my Fiio K7 as the DAC.

So my question is, will the above be worth it or should I rather look at alternative solutions?

I'm open to any suggestion as well on speakers as well.
Don't spend a cent on bookshelf speakers until you've contacted these guys:

Shop – Home Cinema King

And arranged a demo of the Bentley FR100. These are locally made speakers that are known to beat the pants off anything in their remote price vicinity.

I haven't heard the Fosi amps but my suspicion is for desktop use, they'd be just fine.

I mean if it checks all the boxes for you personal audio needs then it's amazing. I currently have a 2x monitor setup for my pc, but due to the size of my speakers they are about 15-20cm away from one another. So I can definitely see the benefit of an amazing sound bar. JBL make damn good speakers!

Awesome, that is great advice! Let me do that first, I'm going to Epiphany tomorrow to also listen to some speakers for reference so I can make a better informed decision.
 
Anybody know where I can maybe get some new replacement pads for my dt990s

I have checked on amazon and there are some options but just checking if any local places might sell them

Cheers
