  • ^Mahina lang ang USB powered speakers kasi pang-laptop lang talaga sila. Mas malakas pa ang TV speakers lalo kung 32" HDTV and bigger ang gamit mo. Compare natin.

    Logitech Z120 (USB powered)
    Power = 1.2W RMS
    Price = P450.00

    TV speakers (LG 32LF6300)
    Power = 10W RMS

    TV speaker (Sony 48R552C)
    Power = 16W RMS

    Creative GigaWorks T40 II
    Power = 32W RMS
    Drivers = 2 x 2.5" Woven glass fiber cone driver + 1 x cloth-domed Tweeter
    BasXPort = Yes
    Price = P6,120.00

    You cannot expect anything great with mere 1.2W RMS. So if gagamitin mo sa TV, go ahead and get the Creative T40 II. I'm sure mag-enjoy ka dyan.

    Pa-recommend po ng audio upgrade sa setup ko:

    On-board audio (GA-H97N-Wifi)
    Creative GigaWorks T20 Series ll (speakers)
    ATH M50X (thru headphone jack ng speakers)

    Mas sulit ba magpalit kesa magdagdag ng amp or something? Wala din ako kasi idea.
    Okay naman sa tenga ko yung setup, pero kung magkakaron ng noticeable improvent mas okay :)
    Budget is 5k siguro. Thanks!

    Ok din mag add ng external amplifier and DAC tulad ng mga FiiO AMP/DAC units. Pero I think ang mag benefit lang is yung M50x headphones mo dahil powered na kasi ang T20 speakers.

    Maganda yung suggestion ni dm1179 na sell your T20 speakers (plus add your 5K budget) and upgrade to better sounding speakers. Add pa ako ng suggestions:

    Powered Speakers
    Anthony Audio Abel Bluetooth Series (Php 7,500)
    Swans HiVi D1080-IV (Php 7,990)
    Swans HiVi D1080MKII 08 (Php 6,990)

    Napakinggan ko na yung Swans HiVi na speakers and so far above average ang sound niya for multimedia speakers. Also they are readily available (last I checked) so easy to demo and purchase from PC shops in Gilmore. You might also want to check out the locally made Bluetooth powered speakers from Anthony Audio as they are bang-for-buck quality speakers.

    Another option is to go the dedicated speaker amplifier and bookshelf speaker route. Get an affordable amplifier and pair it with affordable bookshelf speakers. Then add some budget for speaker wires / interconnects. For example:

    Digital Amplifiers
    SMSL SA-36A PRO (Php 3,499) = 20W per channel @ 8ohms
    SMSL SA-60 (Php 5,499) = 60W per channel @ 8ohms

    Non-powered Bookshelf Speakers
    Anthony Audio Abel (Php 5,000)
    Anthony Audio Ezekiel II (Php 7,000)
    Anthony Audio Philippians II (Php 10,000)
    suggestions by dm1179

    Yung dedicated amplifier + bookshelf speaker option will be a huge upgrade from your GigaWorks T20 II but they will also be the more expensive option.

    Hope this helps! :-)
  • @sleepygeepy
    Maraming salamat sa reply! I think dun muna ako sa better speakers na upgrade :)

    Thanks again sa mga tumulong. Time to audition them speakerz \m/
  • Gud day mga sir,
    hingi lang po ng suggestion tungkol sa pagbili ng desktop speaker, ang plano ko po kasi bumili ng 2.1 speaker ( edifier o creavite na worth something 2k ) eh may nabasa po ako sa net na mas sulit daw po kung ikaw ang bubuo ng speaker mo tulad ng nabasa kong Dayton at lepai combo kaso nag search ako wala naman ako mahanap na seller dito sa pinas at kung meron man baka naman sobrang mahal kung dito sa pinas bibilhin...

    kung may iba pa po kayong masusuggest na alternate na parts pwede po hingi ng idea, kung magkano ang aabutin at san makakabili...
    siguro max budget is 5k ( ok lang sumobra pero depende pa din )

    maraming salamat po :)))
  • siguro max budget is 5k ( ok lang sumobra pero depende pa din )

    Backread. Andito na sa page 432-433 ng sagot sa tanong mo.
  • ^
    sorry sir, pero ok lang po ba na ganto lang muna:

    Anthony Audio Abel (Php 5,000)
    SMSL SA-60 (Php 5,499)

    panalo na po ba yan sa tulad ng soundtrip, nuod ng movies and gaming ?

    salamat po :))))
  • @haki143

    That setup looks OK.

    Kung ikakabit mo yung amplifier sa PC, mas maganda kung bumili ka narin ng Enma ENCORE DAC para hindi yung built-in audio ng motherboard ang gagamitin. Very affordable USB DAC siya for only Php 495 sa CDR-King which sounds better than most onboard motherboard Audio chipsets. No need to buy kung gumagamit ka ng magandang soundcard tulad ng ASUS Xonar soundcard. Kung may extra budget meron din magagandang SMSL DAC na pwede natin i-pair :-)

    Kung decided ka na sa SMSL SA-60 amplifier, I suggest you buy the amplifier first then dalhin mo sa showroom ng Anthony Audio para ma-audition mo ang Abel speakers. Try mo din yung ibang speakers tulad ng Ezekiel series and Philippians series baka mas magustuhan mo yung sound.

    BTW don't forget to buy speaker wire / cables :-)
  • @haki143

    Remove the complications ng audio setup, best bet mo ay bumili ng decent speakers from the get go.

    Yung Creative Gigaworks T40 S2 ay magandang option or yung Swans HiVi D1080MKII 2.0 (medyo lagpas nga lang ng 5k)

    Then sa music and video/audio, just make sure na maganda ang source file mo since garbage in = garbage out, no matter na kahit gaano pa kaganda ang setup mo kung panget naman ang quality ng source file mo ay wala parin :D

    DAC/AMP/OP-AMP/Cable rolling should be the last on your list
  • @vanhale

    Aside sa pag upgrade ng speakers (the T20 is a decent book shelf speaker), how about getting a DAC or an AMP para mas malinis ang audio out mo (currently using the ENCORE ENMA DAC, thinking of getting a Bravo Ocean Tube AMP para sa T20 S2 ko)? Gaya nga ng post ni dm1179, ang real upgrade sa currently na meron ka ay mas mahal na speaker setup.
  • guys may nabibilan pa ba nito?
