If you need a balance control you need an integrated amp or a preamp and power amp combo! This is the matching preamp to the power amp that I recommended!
That statement can be a little confusing, but I don't he is asking for a balance control and this is what he means.
"button that you turn from left to right to adjust the volume" - a knob that you turn clockwise(left to right) to adjust the volume
"instead of separate buttons to raise/lower the volume" - an electronic volume control with + and - buttons
so, he just wants a conventional knob to adjust volume.
Sorry for the confusion i realise it was unclear, i am noob at this and i don't know the appropriate technical terms. My first language is french so there's also the language barrier.
Indeed, i just want a knob to control the volume. I noticed the suggested amps had volume control, but there was 2 different buttons to control it. I prefer knob as traditional "push buttons"
Windows does have a volume control, but i prefer physical volume control.
My current edifier computer speakers has something like this and i love it: http://img.ncixus.com/images/27404_l.jpg
Would this one be powerful enough for my needs ? https://www.amazon.com/SMSL-Q5-Pro-black-Component/dp/B017W12UCU/ref=dp_ob_title_ce
I'm a little bit worried after reading this review:
The sub out is basically a mono low level output of whatever input is being sent into the amp from the source device. It is NOT bass only. Its a full range mono signal.
Not sure if it would work with my PSB SubSeries 125
If you're listening near-field at moderate levels, I wouldn't worry too much about power. Looks like the PSB sub has an adjustable crossover, so it'd be fine; it also has speaker level inputs, so you won't need a sub out option.
Do you need a digital input from your pc, like usb?
prpixel has some great suggestions above.
However if you don't have the speakers already (confused since you listed two options), you may want to consider active monitors such as the KEF300A
or the Audioengine HD6
