I have just purchased the Denon AVR-1613 and I am now looking to upgrade my speakers. I am by no means an audiophile, but I do want a nice sounding system, with out breaking the budget. Just looking to buy center channel and front speakers for now.

You need to provide way more info.

1. Budget (in US $ preferrably)
2. Size of room
3. Budget
4. Type of speakers (towers, bookshelf, satellites) Any size limitations?
5. Will you eventually get a subwoofer?
6. Main use, (home theater, games, music?)
7. Location (are you in the U.S.)
8. Budget!


As you can tell, can't make any recommendations w/o a budget! smile.gif

And the model of your AV-R is not relevant...unless you plan to buy very low sensitivity speakers!

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

Ok. My budget would be about $300 u.s. room size is about 12 x 20. Im thinking bookshelfs or maybe satellites. I Would eventually buy a sub yes( I have a small crappy one that came in a home theater in a box. That I will use in the mean time). I use the setup for watching tv and movies mostly and a little for gaming. I live in Canada near the us boarder to Washington. So I can order things online and pick them up across the border. Hope this helps

Okay, yes, it doesn matter- but just becuase of the example I mention- low sensitivity speakers are not a good match for a low powered receiver.

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

Not sure if you're willing to drive down to the Seattle area or not but they have the Infinity Primus P153 and P163 speakers on sale.

P153 is $99/pr and uses a 5.25" woofer

P163 is $119/pr and uses a 6.5" woofer

The PC251 or PC351 center can be found on Amazon.

A lot of people like these:
Energy 5.1 Take
http://www.amazon.com/Energy-Take-Classic-Pack-Theater/dp/B0021L9BME/ref=sr_1_fed1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1355175205&sr=8-2&keywords=energy+take+5+classic
This is the set without the sub.

A few others:
Martin Logan:

Klipsch:

Dont know much about satellite speakers. Maybe others can chime in.

Anybody have any input on the klipsch speaker set? Or the energy one? As the small satellite speaker may please the wife more than larger bookshelf type speaker.

3 inch or smaller driver will lack midbass and volume...so they are designed for very small rooms!

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

In general, I prefer bigger speakers - however, if you need to go small
due to wife preference > then look at Acoustic Energy, this package is
on close-out pricing and use to list for around $1700

Not on close-out pricing, and will cost more >

Well thank you all for the advice. I think I might go with some Polk audio monitor 40s for font speakers(maybe move them to the back when I can afford it) and the Polk cs2 for a center channel.

Edit: unless you guys suggest something else
