Ok, I have finally decided on my main core of speakers. Keep in mind this is my first home theater setup, I am on a fairly tight budget (Roughly 800 including the addition of my speaker). Because of this, I will only be buying the front section of my setup, which will be two floor speakers, a center speaker, and a sub woofer.

(2) Floor Speakers
Jamo E660's

(1) Front Speaker
Jamo E7CEN to match Floor Speakers

(1) SubWoofer
Premiere Acoustic PA-120

That would make it roughly 520-550 dollars for my main front setup. I figure that would give me the flexibility to spend around 300-400 for a solid 7.1 Receiver system. I would then add bookshelf speakers to complete the 5.1 setup sometime in the next half year or so hopefully.


So how does all the above sound for a first time setup on a budget? I'm pretty set on splurging tomorrow, but any thoughts would be nice.

The Energy E660's are well liked by folks who purchased them, a great setup for the price. You should be able to get a Denon, Onkyo, or Pioneer a/v receiver within your budget, although whether you go 5.1 or 7.1 will depend greatly on your room layout and if you can get some back separation from the listening position to the rear speakers.

good luck with your new system.

I am defenitely going to go 7.1, do you have a reccomendation?

I was thinking the Onkyo-607's since there cheaper now because the 608's are out.

Or the Onkyo HT-RC160.

I heard Denon's are good too.

there is a thread on this forum concerning a problem with Onkyo SR507/607 receivers. Apparently some folks have had problems with failing HDMI daughter cards. Just something to be aware of and research a bit.
