A beginner in need!

Hey everyone! glad to join this awesome website after a long time reading from it.

So here's the deal, I am a 16 year old kiddo who loves to watch movies on his well earned 43E490 screen tv. Only thing missing is a pair of good speakers.

So since my room is too small to contain a 5.1 system I will have to suffice with a 2.1/2.0 system.

My budget is kind of a problem to describe since I live in Israel and I can't really translate my budget in USD because usually Audio realated equipment are much more expensive then in the US/Europe.

But I can just tell you which models I have been laying my eyes on:

Microlab 6C+Sub(Don't know which, need help in this category)

Audioengine A2+Sub.

 

Thanks in advance, Justlog!

Hi Justlog.

Thanks for joining the forum and thanks for reading Stereophile! As I read your post, the speaker that immediately came to mind was the Audioengine A2, and I see that it's one of the speakers you're considering. I think it would be a fine choice. I know many people, including our own editor John Atkinson, who use the A2s with their TVs.

I'm not familiar with the Microlabs, however.

Good luck!

Hey there! thanks for the commment.

I guess I'll have to add a Sub-woofer to the equation wouldn't I?

And by the way, I don't need to add any amp to the setup right?

I also use the Audioengine A2 speakers for my PC and they are very good.

They have built-in amplifiers, so you don't need anything else.

I do use a Sony subwoofer with them , which you can just connect to the RCA jacks on the back of the left speaker, using a Y-connector as needed.

You MUST have analog audio output jacks on your TV, which are becoming much less common.

If you don't have them , you can get an inexpensive converter to convert the optical digital audio output of the TV to the analog signals.

Amazon lists several for under $25.

Thanks for the reply!

So wait I connect the audioengines into a subwoofer with a rca to analog connector and from the 3.5 jack on the audioengine to my tv?

And I have one "Digital audio output(Optical)" on my tv and one output just named "Audio Out". I guess I have to connect the audioengine's to the Audio out?
