Hi guys. I'm in the process of building a house that is going to have a dedicated Home Theater room (15'2" x 26'1" with a 9 foot ceiling) and I am starting the process of looking at my audio components. A local guy is selling the following speakers from the Niles StageFront series

3 PRO2770LCR (Front Stage, all 3 are identical)
2 PRO770FX (side and rear on-wall or books shelf)
2 PRO15SW (subwoofers)


He is selling all 7 speakers and says they are mint. He is asking $2k.

First, would these work well in a theater room of our size (too small, too much, just right?) and does that seem like a good price/value for those speakers?

I am a newbie and would really appreciate any feedback/thoughts on these speakers. From just general google searches, i can't seem to find much in the way of reviews.

Niles makes some solid gear. The Stage Front series is their best offerings. That's a good deal if in fact they are all in excellent condition. I'd say go for it.

for the dimensions of our room, would that be a good setup? We'd be using it for movies, gaming, and to a lesser extent, music. Thanks for the response!

The same seller also has a B&K Components AVR507 receiver. Is that a good receiver to go with these speakers? He's asking $900. Thanks again for any opinions here!

B&K went bankrupt. I'm not sure how service, should you need it, would work out. Consider newer electronics.

B&K brand and assets were purchased by ATI. Seems the brand will continue as well as warranty and repairs.

The AVR507 seems to be a very good receiver and I think the retail is $3K. At $900, should be considered.

It's very long in the tooth don't you think?

That is a decent price for the front three because they are hard to find now. If you are looking for the matching surrounds, I suggest you get them from ebay seller gear2less for only $223 bucks each. That is a steal and I don't know how many he will have in the future - already sold 84 according to ebay. I bought some gear from him in the past with no issues. Good luck
