I think the HL1700 is a super choice for a budget receiver; better than most.
The 3.5-inch speakers are pretty small for the main speakers (but at least they are not 2.5 like some, which is ridiculous).
You may find that you need to upgrade to a larger pair for the main front speakers, but you have a decent starter set.
