Suggestions for Powered Speakers

I'm in the market for a good quality pair of powered speakers. I need a set which can accommodate my PC and a PS4. So I'd need one with either a USB or standard audio jack for the PC and also an optical in for the PS4. Does anyone know of or have a pair which would meet those needs?

Re: Suggestions for Powered Speakers

Many soundbars have the inputs you want. Not sure what "quality" means to you. If that's good enough, shop around for one with the best sound.

If you want a little more audio quality, you could get a decent USB DAC and a nice set of powered monitors. Audioengine, Cambridge, or Teac for the DAC. Perhaps M-Audio monitors for a good value brand of speakers, or stick with Audioengine for everything.

Thanks for the replay. I did end up going the DAC route to connect the PS4. The speakers I went with are the Polk Audio Hampden.
