What is /r/budgetaudiophile about?

  • This is a subreddit for all budget minded audiophiles and enthusiasts looking to grow into real speakers and separate components; and out of boomboxes, bluetooth speakers and PC branded audio solutions.
  • While there is no upper price limit, realistically we focus on speakers in the sub $1000 range, with the sweet spot being between $150 to $500.
  • A place to ask questions about speakers, amps, DACs, parts, pieces and to show off.
  • If you have a question regarding Bluetooth speakers, please post to /r/Bluetooth_Speakers
  • If you just really want a super cheap computer solution (Creative Labs, Altec Lansing, etc.) post to /r/PCSound/
  • BEWARE...While you can ask about soundbars and PC speakers, all will be bested by similarly priced separate systems. It is highly recommended to put your money elsewhere. Please be prepared for members to give you alternate and possibly significantly more expensive solutions.
  • Feel free to post links to sales and good deals. Amazon, Newegg, Slickdeals, Woot etc. (All affiliate sales/links will be removed)
  • Keep personal sales to /r/AVexchange.
  • If someone is being helpful and you agree with their advice, then Upvote it. If someone is being helpful but you don’t agree, then explain why before you Downvote. If someone is being insulting or rude or spamming, please report it so the mods can assist.
