Helping a friend out and steering him away from a HTIB. He started off with a $300 total budget. Now purchased a Onkyo 709 and has $300 for 5.1 setup.
This is for a small room - gaming/movies only.
Some budget systems he's looking at in the sub $300 range:
Boston Acoustics Horizon MCS100 5.1 - 219.99 (A4l)
Polk Audio RM705 5.1 - 249.99 (Amzn)
Klipsch HD 500 Compact 5.1 Home - 299.99 (Amzn)
I know it's well below the standards of most, but do any of you have input on the following 3, or any legit recommendations in the sub $300 price range?
The goal is to buy better speakers in the future and retain the receiver.
