I'm considering putting together a budget system based on a wireless music streaming device such as a Apple Airport Express or Slim Devices Squeezebox.
I'm totally ignorant about modern hi-fi systems - my music system for the last 15 years has been a PC and a pair of earbuds! What I would like to know is, is it possible to use a pair of meduim sized bookshelf speakers on their own, or is a sub-woofer or a pair of towers needed?
I have a 300 sq ft listening space, with a hard floor. I listen to a wide range of popular music, no jazz or classical. I am not looking to be an audiophile - I just want to have something that sounds fairly decent.
Any suggestions would be welcome too. My budget for speakers is about $200. I'm hoping to get a refurbished deal or buy used.
