Hi all -

I'm looking for a new combination desktop/bedroom setup. Looking to keep the budget around $1500 (for the AVR + speakers), but can go higher (I know that's a dangerous game).

I'm planning on running the optical out of from my computer to an AVR/amp. I also have a Music Hall MMF 5.1 turntable to hook up (already have a phono amp). I do most of my listening sitting at my desk, but occasionally watch movies/shows from the opposite side of the room. Here's what my room looks like:



I need suggestions for bookshelf speakers - either active or passive. My thoughts now are to buy the cheapest AVR with room correction, and pair it with Ascend Sierra-1 NrT/Sierra-2's.

What other speakers should I consider?

How about you read the recent threads where people recommended speakers for small rooms?

Just to appease you - Behringer Truths.

Believe me, I'm a long-time lurker and have read all of those threads. The Behringer Truth B2031a that you're referring to may be a bit on the big side of what I want.

I also didn't think my room was considered "small". Thanks for the suggestion though, Arny, I'll try to find someplace to give them a listen.
