Audioengine 2's or MA R45's as laptop speakers?
I'd like to hook my laptop up to some good external speakers but I'm not sure which way to go.
The audioengine 2's seem to be the obvious choice but I have a couple of Monitor Audio R45's spare and wondered I should use them and buy an amp to power them.
I realise that the R45's are going to sound pretty small scale but it's only for occasional listening in the bedroom (my laptop is hooked up to a beresford dac via Airport express to my hifi for proper listening). I'd also want the amp to be pretty darn small and compact, nothing the size of a hi-fi separate as I don't have much space.
So what would offer the best sound for my pound - A2's or a small amp?
