My Klipsch promedia 2.1 machiam like clock or metronome. subwoofer keep coming out "tick tick tick" sound. Anybody have any idea what the problem? The sound from the 2 speakers and the subwoofer are all working perfectly. Just that nonstop ticking is extremely annoying.

Bros, I'm newbie looking to buy a 2.0/1 speaker for my PC and perhaps a sound bar for my TV and need some advice

Currently considering the R1850DB +1 sub, R2000DB or S2000PRO, saw bro wenze review on R2000DB and seems good. Is it worth to stretch the budget and get a S2000 anyway? or even a R1850 w/ 1 sub? PC mainly used to play game, music, anime..

For TV i'm considering the YAS-108 sound bar with a sub (BasX S8?).. add up will be around 600 maybe get 1 of the edifier instead can give me the same result for cheaper? Luna or 1 of the above models.. TV mainly used for netflix, BR movie and PS4..

All these will be in my room, about 400cm by 360cm if that matters

Appreciate all thoughts and advice

For Spotify, any speaker would work including speak er iPhone or Android.

Maybe you need to rephrase your question.

dropped by the Devialet showroom @ mbs, the phantom is even prettier in real life, quite mesmerized by it; and i find the quality really good as well for a solitary compact speaker

main dilemma now is the $$, the LS50W with the right coupon on qoo10 can be in the 2.7k region whilst the base phantom is already $2.5 for a single speaker :/
Just get LS50w, phantom dun haf some streaming capabilities need to add a hub iirc

Monoprice Monolith K-BAS


Solus Audio Entré II


Lol.

Anyway K-BAS / I-PAS / H-PAS is interesting so do read up if you're bored.

Any thoughts on Logitech Z625, Logitech G560 vs ProMedia 2.1?

Price difference is significant but I can stretch to $400.

Another alternative is passive speaker and sub plus a DAC/Amp.

Thoughts?

Promedia > 625 > 560

But you buy 625 is because you plan to connect via optical? More and more motherboards nowadays having no optical output. If you use sound card optical might as well use sound card analogue. z625 is more expensive than z623 by around $50 normally just for the optical in.

Passive speaker + amp + sub easily burst your budget. Cheapest standalone subwoofer is around $200 but you're probably spending over $250 for one with proper stereo support. Plus the passive speakers are usually big. Is an option for experienced people who can decide on their own since there are lots of choices and factors to consider.
