Hey there,

I managed to snag a brand new Denon AVR-1612 for $239 and I'm looking for some nice speakers to go with this for the budget of $600. I prefer floorstanders, but I can understand if that's too much for this budget. I'll use it mostly (high->low) for movies, games and music. I got wooden floors and I don't want to be making too much noise. Any suggestions?

Look at th Cambridge Audio S70 speakers - Lay some throw
rugs in front of the speakers, to tame floor reflections

Get a pair of floor standers, otherwise on that budget all you will be able to get is a satellite speaker system, and it will sound very meh.

How about 5.0? The Polk Monitor60s are $100 ea at Newegg (promo code EMCJJJG66,). Pair them with the Monitor40 and CS2 center (also at Newegg).
