Default Upgrade from Logitech X530 5.1 to what?

So im happily using my logitech X530 speakers but im wanting something better since im doing more then just gaming.

My requirements are:

5.1 (or maybe 2.1 if its that much better)

able to interface with interfaces like scarlett etc

Good for Music Production,Gaming and Movies

in black with a slim profile for the speakers.

good sub.


Budget is around $400 but prefer less.

I'm a little confused, NO 5.1 system will be able to interface with an Audio Interface like a Scarlett, they're 2-channel output only. They're also balanced outputs so to take advantage of that you'd need proper studio monitors (or PA Speakers I guess but that's probably a bit extreme) which would blow your budget out of the water and into the stratosphere, that's not that important though as balanced to unbalanced cables are easy to get.

What would and still be reasonable if I went to a 2.1 system?
