Hey there,

I'm considering getting some nearfield speakers for my desktop setup (placed on the desk) in a small room (3m x 3m). I'm looking for a good fun all-rounder for multimedia—music, games, and movies. I'm leaning towards active speakers and aiming to stay around €450 without a subwoofer. Here are some options I'm looking at:
  1. Yamaha HS5 - €179 Each
  2. Kali Audio LP6 V2 - €211Each
  3. KRK Rokit RP5 G5- €195 Each
Wild Card:
I'm leaning towards the Yamahas, but I'm worried about their low-end performance (bass). Do the Kalis justify their larger size? Any thoughts or other recommendations? Additionally, I'm considering pairing them with the Behringer U-Phoria UMC22 DAC (is this a good idea?).

Thanks.

Hi,
pls look at the dimensions of the 3030i, I wóuld not recommend them as desktop speaker. Also nearfield imho isnt their virtue.
My son is using them this way ow, but his desk has almost 100 cm depth plus it's particular for gamig use, which seems to me quite unsual fit for the speaker.
The play mighty fine with the Ayima A08 pro, though.

The Kalis seem to have many friends around here.;-)
