Why buy a desktop computer speaker system that costs as much as a pair of decent-quality nearfields? In this case, it’s because you get way more than a desktop computer speaker with the SC203 monitors. They’re detailed, airy, offer a lot of nuance when working with stereo material, and deliver a surprising amount of low end that’s clear, balanced, and more accurate than what you’d get in a lot of budget speak- ers with bigger woofers. The DSP settings and the flexibility of
