    Hi all,

    Im looking for two bookshelf speakers to connect them with my pc.
    Currently, I have the pioneer vsx-422 amplifier and the creative x-fi sound blaster titanium HD soundcard.
    These are the requirements I need met.....
    The price will be around 300$, will be used for high quality audio especially for music.

    HTD Level 3 arguably the best tweeter there is, at the priceCould you live with a 4" mid-woofer or do you have to have a 5 1/2 or larger woofer? Also...does it have to be new?

    Thanks!! :) I dont care if its new and i also dont have any preference about the woofer sizeThe only problem is that here in Europe the options are limited for speaker brands I only found the psb speaker...

    Rule 1.Tell us where you are so we don't recommend US ID companies(HTD) or companies with a North America footprint(Axiom).

    Hmmmm thats definitely a little tougher.

    PSB is a great choice but I would also add B&W to your research. And Im pretty sure Axiom ships world wide so you might want to drop them a line.

    Axiom does ship worldwide...but they aren't going to be $300...once in Greece.

    The KEF C3 would be a good choice. (The C series may be for us "idiot neanderthal Yanks"...as it isn't on Amazon UK or DE)
    Dali Zensor 1 (Dali has never made a lousy speaker)
    Wharfedale Diamond (a speaker I wish we could get in the states)
    Q Acoustics Q2010i (don't have the slightest clue who they are...but this one gets rave reviews)
