My idea is to buy a pair of KEF IQ-30 for stereo speakers and for the sound card an Asus Xonar Essence STX. I'm going with the STX instead ST because it has an integrated headphone amplifier, it's a mini pci-e card (the ST is just mini pci and its getting a little obsolete), and it's a little cheaper. The headphone, after a lot of research is an ATH-M50W. Below is a picture of my desktableThe desk has 130cm x 60cm. The KEF IQ-30 would replace my low quality Philips speakers. The Philips speakers are connected to my Philips micro system that is said to amplify 26W rms 8 Ohms, but I really doubt they can perform that.The question is, will this KEF speakers be good there?
The bedroom itself measures something like 10m². How may I amplify the new IQ-30 speakers? I mean, my Philips speakers are connected to their Philips micro system and the system is connected to my computer's motherboard. The thing is that the IQ-30 speakers will demand some power that my Philips micro system will not be able to do.
You've probably got problems with where you have the speakers. Usually a desktop like that is not the best. The ones you have would probably sound better if you raise them off of the desk a few inches to a foot or more and point them at your ears. The benefits of better speakers can be diluted by putting them in a bad location. Usually, the top of a table pointed at your belly is not good.
