Yet Another what should I buy thread

Hey guys, I'm a headphone guy who has been using the same original Klipsch 4.1s for over a decade. Well they finally died the other day and now I figure I should pick up some decent speakers. I am fairly clueless though and could use some direction.

My current headphone setup (I figure maybe the DAC can be integrated into the speaker setup?)

Schiit Asgard AMP

Schiit Birfrost DAC

Denon D5000 headphones

 

I'm looking to keep it under a grand

Speakers are primarily used for TV/Movies but also get used for a wide variety of music: Hip/Hop, Rap, Country, Rock, and occasionally some classical or instrumental stuff

 

Thanks in advance!

How did/will you employ loudspeakers?

The Klipsch 4.1 was a computer speaker system, and is essentially an active loudspeaker. You could run directly from the Bifrost to active speakers.

The Emotiva Airmotiv 6 would work pretty well. You can try them and return them within 30 days for a purchase price refund if you don't want them.

The speakers are going to be

The speakers are going to be primarily paired with a computer for the moment, in the semi-distant future they may be moved to acompany a proper home theatre setup with a tv etc, but for now I am happy with my computer setup.

 

How does a powered speaker compared to one that utilizes an amp/receiver/etc? If this is a completely ignorant question, I apologize.

They can both be very good.

Consider giving the Emotiva Pro Airmotiv 6 a try.
