I need to get myself a desktop speaker setup(and the knowledge to set one up)
more_vert
I have been a mostly headphone guy and want to experience some nice speakers that wont break the bank. I know nothing about speakers. Does the amp matter? Can I use my current Dac/Amp combo (FX Audio DAC-X6 ), I was thinking about upgrading that as well.

Vanatoo is pretty solid choice for ease of use. You could also try the emotiva A-100 and a pair of dayton bookshelves. You could use your existing gear as the DAC and the A-100 has it's own volume control. Here are the daytons I was referring to: https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-b652-air-6-1-2-2-way-bookshelf-speaker-with-amt-tweeter-pair--300-651?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=pla&gclid=CjwKCAjwnMTqBRAzEiwAEF3nduYUeleZsjVGlz_rvEsHzhz1a9VavFLqdnYJrAOstVhLEo544my1_BoC2KoQAvD_BwE The benefit of NOT going active is you can reuse the various pieces of your "starter" set in other applications down the road.

If you're looking for solely a desktop pair of speakers, I would suggest the vanatoo t0. I have a pair and they're an amazing pair at $350 with all the features, convenience and most of all sound quality that they offer. Zeos and Valour also speak highly of these speakers so check them out.

They are active speakers so they have their own internal dac and amp which is nice for a desktop set up as it reduces clutter.
