EDIT#2;
Hello again! , thank you so much for all of the suggestions...
Gladly , I've found my pair, gonna take the Mackie CR5BT.

After a long discussion with an Amazon agent who seems to have some idea on audio topics ,I've felt more confident taking these.


Thank you so much for everyone who's been suggesting whatever, I appreciate the time and thought you've put into this.

Hope you'll have a great week.


Edit;

Guys , any thoughts on Mackie / M-Audio?

Hey!

So here's a little background story on my problem -

I been really liking edifier for a long while now , never really got a product they sold - until I could!

So I checked between the different Amazon marketplaces , and CO.UK. was the cheapest with fastest delivery option for the lowest rate. aye.
300 Pounds (roughly 350USD i guess, less by now) , got a giftcard and applied it to the account and placed a backorder - and that's the last i've heard of it. Been a month - seems like it won't EVER (i know it'll eventually...) go in stock , but I really don't feel like waiting anymore :/ been a while now...

So the speakers I wanted to get;


search

The R2000DB by Edifier. Real beauty tbh - supposedly sounding great too! :D

So since I won't get a chance to get them , I need to find another set of speakers - am looking for something PRETTY (important , really. Can't stand a boring boxish speaker , give it a twist of some kind :c) , big (atleast 25cm , up to 35cm tall o-o) , and obviously high quality all around. I'd rather a 2.0 set that can support themselves , so probably bookshelf speakers.

If any of you knows of any models I could look into - please , suggest them.
I'll check them out and hopefully they'll be sold on amazon for a reasonable price and HOPEFULLY shipped internationally.


Thank you so much for reading and thanks in advance if you've contributed in any kind of way ;'D

I know you found yours, but in case anybody else is looking, I STRONGLY recommend the IK Media iLoud micro monitors. $300, about the size of a couple tallboys, and flat down to 50 Hz (by some arcane engineering magick). They're especially good if desk space is at a premium, and it's mostly nearfield listening. If I had an extra $200 I'd probably get baby Genelecs, but I am VERY happy with the iLouds.

As a loudspeaker designer and prototype builder I have to ask you what is your price range? The best bookshelf speaker that can be used for home and computer use is the KEF LS50. It can be bought on sale and comes in a powered and passive model. They are sold everywhere. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_991LS50/KEF-LS50-High-Gloss-Piano-Black.html?tp=186&awkw=325522607255&awat=pla&awnw=g&awcr=199893528163&awdv=c&awug=9004359

If I had $350 to spend on speakers I would take a look at the Vanatoo Transparent Zero.

Best bang for the buck is the JBL 305 period,it's no match against krk rp5 or others in this price segment and even a little bit higher.

Honestly, you can't be that picky, nobody should care about the looks if they want the audio, you need to grow up and look past that stuff. If you can, the JBL LSR305's are the best on the market.

You are all a bunch of dumb!@#!'s. I own Magico the best period. If you have to buy on the cheap look at Elac

Excellent answer, however we need more info. if used as a nearfield monitor the Elac could be a problem.

JBL Lsr305 are the best, with the waveguide they are unmatched.

Nobody mentioned Presonus Eris? M Audio BX5 are great as well.
