  1. To replace my Mac’s 1st-gen SoundSticks (which connected by USB, unlike subsequent versions) I was looking for some other powered speakers that connected via USB.

    Under $300 there’s not much besides the $249 Audioengine A2+ speakers, but I was thinking that using an inexpensive DAC with USB I could choose from a larger variety of speakers.

    For the same $249 budget, can you think of a better combo of speakers+DAC to use on a desk? (I’d rather not have big speakers on my small desk, and the 15-year-old SoundSticks took up very little room.)
