slightly off topic, but those speakers that come with bluetooth built-in, do they tend to have latency issues? Or is case by case, so have to be wary when selecting speakers?

currently using a Creative katana, which is great for gaming and movie watching, but not as good for music. So want to get a small 2.0 speakers to also fit under my monitor.

Was planning to get the Audioengine A2+, I had one before, it was pretty good, and the price is quite cheap, especially for used units.

But saw someone else recommended the JBL Control 2P over the A2+, which is around the same size and cheaper. Anyone has experience with these speakers?

Hi bro congrats on your new passive setup, was busy during cny period didn't saw your pm....guess you need those pads that sit below your speakers or a isolation stand to decouple your speaker from your desk will be nice enough...

^^^^^^^^^^^^

wah sounds like a superb combo.

Audiolabs 8000A

how much sia, used?

also for the foam "stands" i use them too, mine a bit small, ordered some slightly bigger pcs, seems to be quite solid, might need to tilt them up and toed in.

i also ordered some foam for the walls. hahaha, side project for fun, but haven't come.

i'm already toying with the idea of a proper amp and a seperate DAC.

Would this be better than speaker spike stands?

http://www.isoacoustics.com/iso-puck/

For people looking to isolate vibration/resonance of their smaller sized speakers from their table top, you can consider the ISO-PUCK from Isoacoustics.

I was quite skeptical when I bought them, not expecting them to work as well as my Iso stands. But due to a redesign of my work station, I can no longer use the stands as they bring the speakers up to a height that I cannot use.

There are other cheaper options (which are basically pieces of rubber) that I've experienced in other people's setups. but I wasn't impressed.

The ISO-PUCKS take up to 9kg each, so a minimum of 3 will take speakers that weigh up to 27kg each.

They work as well as the Iso stand, which is probably one of the best isolation tools you can buy. I'm totally satisfied with them. They work very well, are low profile (3cm height) and very well-made.
