Thanks for the suggestions.

I bought a new 2.1 speaker already.
Just find it a pity to throw away speakers that are still working fine

I've recently swapped out my Teac AI-301DA with a pair of Monitor Audio BX2 for a Sonos Beam with a pair of Sonos Ones. However I found the new setup to be kinda lacking when listening to music as compared to my previous one.

Now I'm actually considering, to swap back to a 2.0 setup with the possibility of adding a subwoofer in the future for watching movies. Am I better off picking up the JBL LSR305 or a pair of passive speakers to use with the Teac which I still have on hand? Have a budget of $300~500.

should go for passive as passive last longer than active speakers and it's more better to go for separate than active as you will have lower noise floor than active with power built into it.......if active spoilt repair is always expensive which you could buy a new one.....learnt my lesson last time now i only go for passive

BX2 is an excellent speaker to begin with...



Red is BX2

Might actually be a downgrade if u go LSR305, especially for living room.
