Hey, I was hoping someone could help me make a decision before the holidays. I posted this in the 2 channel section, but it doesn't seem to get as much traffic.
I'm trying to buy a family member a pair of speakers so that she can listen to music at a fairly loud level (she likes to crank the volume). The receiver she has isn't the greatest, but it's a Sony HTD-DW790 (which will soon be replaced by an older fisher amp she has lying around).
I've narrowed it down to the Insignia speakers from BB (NS-B2111) or a pair of Infinity Primus 152
I've been surprised by the insignia reviews, which is why they are in consideration. As with most things, the cheaper the better, so if the insignias are roughly on par or better then I'll choose those.
I'm confident I can get the Insignias for $70-80 (higher than I'd like to pay for these speakers considering their past prices, but w.e), or the Primus for $90-100. I do not know a lot about speakers to say which ones are the better buy, but I've heard great things about both sets.
My max is $100 total, so these are the best options I was able to find. Again, these are primarily for listening to music. I'm looking for the pair that won't crackle so much at higher volumes. Any help you guys can offer is greatly appreciated.
