What's the best speaker for 400$, without drop and dac/amp? People here say A5s aren't good but I've heard great things about them... what about Harman Kardon Soundsticks III Speakers? I do have the fiio e17 amp/dac but I don't think it's a good idea to keep them on for such a long time with computer speakers because it would drain its battery life.
(If the speakers are under 200$ then that's amazing but I want to see my options if I go to 400$)
I'm looking for speakers to put on my desk but don't mind them being large. I would also like these speakers to have the power to go really loud for an indoor party. Also, I have an Altec Lansing VS4121BLK sub-woofer lying around, so maybe I can use them with other speakers? I'm not really familiar with anything other than 3.5mm input or usb.
