Asking for advice

Changing from klipsch promedia GMX 2.1 to Audioengine a5+ is an upgrade or status quo or downgrade?

For a 2.0 setup, usually if i turn up the volume i can feel the lack of sub woofer more obvious... not sure if the new ones still have this issue or not.

You get better sound from ~100Hz and higher. But you lose bass volume. Overall, it's an upgrade but you don't get to turn up the bass high high.

You can always use the GMX sub along with the A5+

What do you mean by dac? I saw the specs, it has a 3.5mm jack, suitable for your PC and laptop.
