Like most people who post like this, I am starting out on a budget of probably around $500-600, but it's flexible. Right now I'm looking for a 2.0, or 2.1 setup with receiver that can be upgraded later on to a 5.1 system. I've been doing some reading and researching and I really like Fluance's SXHTBFR. For a receiver I've been looking at Denon AVR-1612. This setup would put me right at about $500 from what I've found.
I live in an apartment with a relatively small living room which is why I don't need a huge setup right now, but I want a nice system that is upgradable. I live in Northeast Alabama for a reference if anyone knows any deals and I'll mainly be using the system for music and movies. Thanks for any advice/input.
