Hi guys, looking advice on a beginner setup. I’ve been trying to research as much as I can, but I feel like I need advice from people who know what they’re talking about to make some hard yes/no decisions.

I’m thinking of going for the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC.

Beyond that:

1) If I’m getting powered speakers, do I need to get a pre-amp as part of the setup? Everything I’ve read seems to indicate I do with the Debut Carbon, but I wanted to confirm.

2) Which pre-amp should I be looking at? Anything wrong with the Pro-Ject MM? Are there any benefits to sticking with the same manufacturer here?

3) Speakers. I think I’ve narrowed it down to two options, but I’m having trouble picking between them.

In terms of aesthetics, I think I prefer the A2+ and I’ve heard really good things about the audio quality, but (and this is a really minor thing) I do like that the BT3s come with a remote. Not too fussed about bluetooth connectivity, but admittedly it might make the BT3s more versatile as I could also hook up my phone for Spotify.

Is there any real difference in sound quality?

Lastly, you might have noticed all the links I’ve posted are the red versions. All of the options I’ve linked also come in white. What do you guys like more, red or white? Purely opinion that one, just curious.

More information, I’m in the UK and my budget is £600. If you know of better options for any part of the setup within the budget, I’m all ears.

I had this same discussion with a friend of mine and honestly if you’re just playing games I would say no.

I use THESE speakers and they work great.

Hey everyone, I’m trying to set up a new home office for PC gaming and listening to music. Right now I have my Gaming PC (w/ my iTunes library), a PC monitor, my AT-M50 Headphones, and the Audio Technica AT-LP120-USB. After some research, I was considering getting the following to handle both audio needs:

Audioengine A2+ With Audioengine DS1 PAIR

Audioengine D1 24-bit Digital-to-Analog Converter

These both seem highly rated, but I’ve never had a chance to listen to them myself. Will these guys work well? Do you really NEED the Digital-to-Analog Converter? And would you recommend anything else? Thanks for your help!
