Hello all!

1) Swanspeaker (HiVi) M10 2.1: $86
2) Logitech Z333: $59.90
3) Edifier R1280DB: $115

My main primary usage will be for listening to music (POP, R&B, JPOP) and gaming. The only speaker that I've used so far is my bluetooth speaker, Sony XB-31 which I like. My budget ranges from $100 to $150.
swans or edifier is fine

these look pretty sharp.

specs looks on point, but i think best to go down and give it a try! the father and son crew are nice and friendly.

if not something else to look at, KEF LSX.

Finally gotten myself the Hivi (Swans) M300... Lazada had a leap year deal so chop chop gotten it.

Actually does the M300 contains a DAC?

Does it mean if I optical out from motherboard, it is using the DAC from the mobo?

Swans m200mk3+ and m300 has a burrbrown dac inside

When would it be using its own DAC ?

Guys, looking to upgrade my setup. Got any good bookshelf + amp recommendations?

Currently using q acoustics 3020 with nad d3020 (v1).

Amp wise, I still prefer class d and was looking at the nad m10 but it is above my budget. Streaming good to have but not compulsory. Open to other suggestions, only constraint is size and budget

While speakers, really need some recommendations. Preferably something that pairs well with your amp recommendation.

Prefer to keep max at below $5k.

Or should I just save money and get the kef lsx?

lsx will likely solve a lot of your problems.

this also leads to the next qn, what is the size constraints.

that will give us a better gauge of what can fit in.

i would think a decent class d amp, can be about $1-2k, decent speakers will be about the same $1-2k. should be within your budget.

5k?
Is the LS50 in your range?
Coaxial speakers do well at close range.
But bass hungry folks may like a amp speaker plus sub combo

Amir should eventually get to measuring one of the Q Acoustics speakers, so we will know what are considered upgrades to that by then.

Meanwhile here's the LS50
https://www.audiosciencereview.com/f...-review.11144/

Some people/owners claim LS50W performs differently from LS50, others claim they are the same. Only time will tell.

IIRC so far the best speaker he's measured is the https://www.audiosciencereview.com/f...-review.11652/ but that is overbudget.

JBL 705P is somewhat ok although I don't feel it is that good in terms of value. Considering at those prices I want a perfect frequency response.
https://www.audiosciencereview.com/f...-review.11944/

Because we have things like Elac Debut Reference that provides very good performance for much less money.
https://www.audiosciencereview.com/f...-review.12232/

Some speakers like the Elac Debut Reference above and the Klipsch RP-600M can give nearly-perfect FR after EQ so that is something to consider. IIRC, LS50 also reacts well to EQ.

Buchardt Audio speakers are also in the review pipeline.

Speakers wise constraints is the depth max is about 260, width about 220, give and take a few mm. That's due to table size issue.

Amplifier is placed nearby and max size is width 300 & depth 350.

Prefer separate amp and speaker but the lsx really looks like a good all in one simple solution though and will also help to clear up all my messy cables running everywhere over the desk.

Edit: added more info
