That's plenty of money for speakers.

For computer speakers look at Creative and Logitech's range, there are other brands too.

Good reviews^

yeah you can do that.

either way im sure you will know, u will need to do some research, best bet is to just ask like you have on here and look on forums etc

230$ and you want to buy computer speakers?

nah homie your best bet is:

u can always hook up a receiver and speakers made for home theater

^^this.

get a home theatre system aka surrond sound system.

just hook it up to your computer and tv and dvd player ("most come with built in dvd players)

but get one with a powerful amp to make sure you have bass and set up the speakers in the corners of the room.

you will love that shit.



if your trying to buy computer speakers, you hsould be spending no more than $50.

dude's asking for hip hop speakers not a home theater set up
dont waste that kinda monay on pc speakers cuz no matter how much you spend on em they all suck
home theater systems suck too
those kinda tiny med. speakers are not build to handle hip hop hence thay all start rattling at some point

if youve got an amp/receiver you can get a pair of decent speakers (lets say like these http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Pioneer+-+5-1/4%22+3-Way+Floor+Speakers+%28Pair%29/1147998.p?id=1218224796804&skuId=1147998)

a receiver + 2 speakers/monitors is the best choice for any kind of music

if you dont have one then youd be better off buying some headphones: you can get some high end AKGs, Sennheisers or Beats

if i were you id probably get some $100-150 earbuds cuz they're noise isolating
i have some cheap $50 AKG earbuds hooked to my wUpod and they sound phenomenal :yes:

this is what i would do...but its gonna cost u double 500-600$ for a pair
for decent sounding ones only down side is the hi's will be higher then normal for normal listing

they also sell home computer monitors in the other section which run a little cheaper but you sacrifice some performance quality. i heard it helps to buy a small EQ so you can tweak them.

i'm a complete technical idiot so when you guys throw around terms like home theater i'm already shuddering... anyway i'll look into it. i'm really ready to spend on this because I see myself using it for at least three years.

I'm using dre's Beats earphones btw. to have a sound system equivalent to that on my cpu would be sweeeet :)

There are multi-channel speaker sets made specifically for PCs.

They come with an amp/reciever just like the one pictured, except you get 4 speakers instead of 5.

$230 is enough to afford some shit like that.

if it just for listening go with the home theatre set up or even just a good pair of pc speakers



but if you recording or producing then go with studio monitors
