Hey Guys - I could really use some help setting up a system. I am in a 400 sq ft strawbale studio cottage and my computer is my only source of sound. I was considering a set FOCAL CM65's, but the price is a bit beyond my budget and i'm not sure whether they would sound as good as passive speakers and an amp. I know i would regret buying the CMS50's just to save money.
So i came across this Emotiva UPA 200 (on sale now for $350) and a the Chorus 807V (on sale for $720). How do you think this setup would sound compared to the CMS65's?
Are there other speakers that would sound as good or better for less$$?
Finally - i have a Creative SB1095 USB sound card
Can this be connected directly to the UPA 200?
