I am a COMPLETE n00b when it comes to home audio. I bought a HTiB many years ago, 8+ years, and am looking to upgrade. While I can appreciate high end equipment, I am in no way a Golden Ear, nor does my checkbook have unlimited resources
This past summer, I upgraded my 720p Sony to an LG 55" 7600, and love the tv. But I know I am doing the picture injustice with the lack of quality audio.
What I am looking for is an inexpensive speaker recommendations. I am considering Pioneer SP-BS21's. But would consider alternatives in the same price range. I know newwegg runs deals on the Pioneers, put would consider Polk, Energy, and anything else that people have had a good experience with.
Naturally I need a quality receiver to drive the new speakers, everyone seems to have an opinion, I have heard good and bad about all the brands it seems, but I am considering a Denon 1612 from A4L. I also love the style of the Marantz slim line series.
Any help for this complete n00b would be great.
