Maybe see if you can get a good price on the M-Audio Studiophile AV 40, it has no sub, but they are on the slightly bulky side, at 9 inchs tall and 6 inches wide, but have very large (for the price range) 4″ speakers, so they’ll have a lot more warmth to them over the e10 and T40.

E10s lack the headphone out, unfortunately…

Price is about equal for both the T40 and e10, power output is comparable too. Where the e10 holds the advantage, is the large (ish) 3″ radiated passive bass, meaning it can cope better with lower frequencies if bass is your thing.

Both systems are near-field and will not fill a room with warm, rich sound. Both are good for desktop use if you plan to game, or listen to music while you study.

The forgetful volume control is irritating on the e10, but the T40 volume control is analog, so it’s set and forget, but it is erratic/poorly balanced. The e10 has the propitiatory cable too if you are considering long term.

In terms of longevity, this is a hard call as well. My personal experience with Creative speakers in the past have been… sub-par. Power supplies die unexpectedly, random popping and cracking from stressed caps, and the like, from 3 different speaker sets (no longer produced). With Edifier, I can’t comment on longevity, as I have not used them long enough to call it.

Out the two, I’d personally go with the e10. However, I’m more partial to 2.1 setups for the extra bass, as I always leave room for a sub.

Dedicated sub, on desk remote, much higher power output, no proprietary cable. If you can stretch to the Corsair SP2500, that would be better still, since it has almost no noise (except at very high levels) and the sub is very smooth and warm, but beware of its size, since it’s about the size of a desktop PC. But, it depends on what it is you want from your speakers. Do you want to fill a room for movies, or are you just interested in listening, sat at your desk?

Between the Edifier Exclaim 2.0 and the Klispch 2.1, How many of you will o with the Kilpsch 2.1 instead of the Edifier 2.0 ?
