Dayton Audio B652-AIR 6-1/2" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker with AMT Tweeter Pair [link]
I have these connected to an old Superscope from the 70s that I picked up for $25 (usd). I use them exclusively for music, and have been extremely happy for the budget. They don't provide huge bass, so hip-hop/EDM etc sounds good, but isn't going to shake the windows. Good luck with your search.
Just a set of B452-AIR each for the kitchen, 2 bedrooms, office, and maybe an additional subwoofer for the deck. I may not be getting these exact speakers but they're a good example. These additional speakers will happen over time once I have my quality system set up in the living room.
I'd just like to have all my music in one spot while also being able to play it anywhere in the house without dealing with a bunch of speakers that require batteries. Running wires won't be an issue.
I do not have speakers. I was looking at some Dayton Audio speakers

I'm open for any suggestions as well
I would recommend these speakers: [link]
And the Yamaha RS-201 stereo receiver from www.accessories4less.com. Grab some 16awg wire from www.monoprice.com and plug in your iPhone via a 3.5mm to RCA cable. Later on, add in a sub, but this will get you going.
I think this setup will work well for you! I have the Lepai amp right now in my living room and haven't had a problem. Also, you will not need a DAC, as the Lepai has the 3.5mm jack, and you already have a sound card. However, if price isn't a major constraint, I would recommend upgrading your speakers to these Dayton Audio Speakers for 20USD more
If you want something you can add to later, honestly, Id go with something that needs a receiver. Ive herad really good things about these [link]
Youll have to drop about a hundred dollars on a receiver but honestly, thats not much mroe in total than the edifiers. And, when you want to open up that bass, youll be able to add a sub. I cant personally speak to those speakers, but they look solid, and a 6.5" driver is fucking monster in a pair of bookshelves. That said, I wouldnt be surprised if the mids were muddy in those. The ribbon tweeter combined with such a large driver, I would think the bass and the highs would be super clean but the mids might be lacking. I think theres a 4.5" version of that same speaker. If you intend to buy a sub in the future, taht might be your goldilocks version.
All the best, though. Good luck.
