Ok, guys, I've been searching this site for weeks now trying to decide on equipment and I still have yet to do so. It seems like most threads end up with guys recommending killer deals that have expired by the time I stumble upon the thread.
So, here's my situation guys. I'm just wanting to build a simply entry "hi-fi" setup in my bedroom just to get a general idea of what I like.
As of now, I have a Crown XLS1000
amp (pretty large amount of power) with an Aphex 124a as a "preamp" of sorts, with the source being my PS3.
I'll be using it mainly for music but would like it to sound good with movies as well.
I would like to keep things under $300 for a couple floor standing speakers just for this first time around. (Knowing me, they'll last about a week or two before I upgrade lol)
So far I've looked into the Polk M50s and M60s
on ebay and newegg. Both places have them for solid prices.
I have also found a couple of Mission MV-6s
on ebay for about $250 after shipping.
I have also been looking into the Fluance SXHTBFR-BK
floors for about $290.
Also on my list were Boston Acoustics CS260
s which can be had on ebay for about $260 for the set.
Fry's has the JBL ES80
s for about $288 for the set shipped.
and The Pioneer FS52
s also look pretty appealing for the money.
So, which of these would you choose?
or if none of the above, what would you choose for the price?
Oh, and yes I will be adding a subwoofer at some point and I have looked into the idea of bookshelf speakers to save cash; but by the time I buy the stands, I feel like I will have spent just as much and I also feel I can hide the wiring much better with towers.Cliffs: Best floorstanding speakers I can get for $300 shipped per pair, cheaper is better as well
