Advice on computer audio system
I'm looking to get something good for my computer desk. I listen to music a lot, at least an hour of active listening per day, and i sporadically play around with writing electronic music. I use a pair of MDR-V6's and i love them, so much that i god rid of my 5.1 system since i liked the sound of the headphones so much more, but now i miss having speakers.

So now i'm looking for something better than the creative 5.1 g500 i had. I'd like a natural flat response curve, but then also i like big bass and i cannot lie. 50hz wont do, i want at least 30hz

My room is about 4x3m or 13x10 feet small. I don't wanna spend more than 700$, preferably less, but i want something that will not make me switch back to headphones all the time. Are there regular computer speakers that will sound as good as my headphones? Or should i get some kind of studio monitors? Is a subwoofer a must if i want 30hz?

look at the audioengine A2+ or audioengine A5+

Thanks for the quick response. The A5+ look pretty good as far as i can tell. I presume i'll have to get a sub for the lower frequencies. Maybe i could get the A5+ together with an Audioengine S8 subwoofer?
