First post here and just purchased my first receiver: Marantz NR1604

The question now is what would be the best speakers/sub to get for a 3.1 setup to start? I think floor standing speakers would work the best for my set up.

Budget: $500 - $1000 ? I could be swayed to spend more if it were really worth it.

The setup will be in the living room of a somewhat small (700 sq ft) but very nice condo (meaning aesthetics matter.)

I will be watching TV and movies and listening to music. Probably 60/40.

Any advice would help. I'm not really sure where to start.

Thanks!
Chris

A few speaker systems worth considering are:


Some of the more popular subwoofers are:


Depending upon your circumstances/needs you could mix-n-match virtually any combination of these and make a very solid system.

Thanks for the recommendations! Definitely a good start.

Any recommendations a step down in price?

Also, any good subs that are physically smaller?

Thanks,
Chris

+1 for those speaker and sub recommendations Jim made above.

Another speaker to look at is the Wave Crest Audio HLV-1: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1473975/wave-crest-audio-hlv-1-ascend-designed-budget-bookshelf

How big is your living room area where you system will be, including any areas that open onto it? Subs "see" the whole open area, and you should pick a sub based on how much sub you need for the room.

The room is an open floor plan. The living room area is 12' x 10' but the 10' technically extends much further. As far as the open room goes, it would be more like 12' x 30'.

That's a fairly big space. I think that going smaller than the subs Jim listed is probably not a great idea unless you absolutely have to.

Even if I am only concerned with filling a 12' x 12' or so potion of the space?

Sub performance is connected to room volume (not area). So yeah. It sees the whole big open space.

A subwoofer only acknowledges physical boundaries, not virtual ones, so regardless of what you consider the HT area it's going to try and fill the entire space.

Okay - I'll stick with one of the subs he recommended.

Are floor standing speakers not that good / overly expensive?

What about smaller speakers and mounting on a stand?

Thanks,
Chris

When you have subs the added size and cost of floorstanders, which only affects their low frequency extension, serves no purpose.

I also think monitors + multiple subs is the way to go. All the way. Whether you get monitors or towers, you will want subs anyway, so don't waste the budget on towers. Spend it on subs.

If you think about it, monitors + subs is basically like towers, except you get much better bass with the monitors +'subs.

Look at the $60K RBH 8T "tower" speaker or the $20K RBH T3/R "tower". They are really just monitors atop subs, albeit the monitors are quite large. biggrin.gif

There are other examples of "modular tower" in which a midrange/tweeter cabinet sits atop the bass cabinet.

I agree 100% on Monitor Audio. I love the older RS series and will continue to recommend them in this price range. You can click on the link in my signature to hear them play jazz music from about 13' away. Cameras cannot pick up bass but there is an undersized SB1000 in the video playing. I love the SB1000 but think I'll be filling my room with dual PB1000's smile.gif

I think I'd go with what Jim says and get a PB1000 or more and add some amazing Monitor Audio speakers!

If you look in the used market you could also check out Paradigm Studios. I've got a pair on the way to see how they sound.

Thanks for all the help guys.

I got my Marantz NR1604 in last week and I'm getting a pair of the Wave Crest HLV-1 in tomorrow.

I just ordered this NXG sub: http://www.amazon.com/NXG-Technology-NX-BAS-500-500-watt-Subwoofer/dp/B008FSTU4G

My question now is: should I order a center channel to help with audio in movies? I would likely go with the Monitor Audio http://www.audioadvisor.com/prodinfo.asp?number=MRBBXCE

Would mixing the HLV-1 and that center channel work fine?

I think I'll hold off on the rears for now.

Thanks!
Chris

That will be a nice setup smile.gif

It's much better for the front soundstage (left/right/center) to timbre match. More likely than not, the Monitor Audio center wouldn't even be close to a match. Best timbre match is the same exact speaker or, next best, the matching center created by the manufacturer.

So if I should timbre match the center, and it doesn't look like Wave Crest has a center channel, should I just not get a center at all?

Thanks,
Chris

If I'm not mistaken, the HLV-1 can be used laying horizontally (not true for all speakers). Ask Wave Crest smile.gif

I guess that seems odd to me? I assumed a center channel would be used for the purpose of clarifying audio mostly (through use of mostly just tweeters.) If I used the same speaker as my L and R that contains woofers, wouldn't I not gain the main benefit from using a center?

Sorry for my ignorance... Haven't done a TON of research or anything.

Thanks,
Chris

The Audyssey Multieq in the NR1604 should help with the timbre matching.

Your choice of speakers seems strange. On the same budget you could get Primus P163s L & R and PC351 center channel which are timbre-matched and technically as least as good as what you have been talking about.

There are differences among center channel speakers. Numerous articles have pointed out the potential failings of MTM center channel speakers (lobing) and the advantages of center channel speakers with the tweeter mounted above the midrange. The two technical features that can help with the lobing problem are Linkwitz-Riley 24/dB octave crossovers and mounting the tweeter above the lower range driver(s). Now having these features is not a guarantee of good performance, but they are positive steps and if executed well can really help.

There are smaller subs, but that comes at a cost. To make a sub smaller and maintain the same output, you either have to add amp power and or passive radiators. Both of those cost money. The recommended sub is a very good sub for the money and if you can make it work, I would go with it.

I was going by the previous recommendations and the HLV-1's seemed to be the best fit. Had I looked into those Primus speakers, I may have chosen differently. For now, I have a pair of HLV-1.

Do you have any suggestions for centers that would timbre match closely with the help of the Audyssey MultiEq that perhaps have the features you mentioned?

Thanks,

Audyssey could help, but it's still generally a better choice to get the matching speaker. If you already had a different center, you could try it. But makes more sense to me to get another HLV-1 if you can.

Essentially, I thought a center speaker was designed to do a different purpose than the L and R. So if I just got an L and R speaker and used it as a center, wouldn't I not gain the benefit of clarified voices when when watching a movie, etc?

The center speakers created by manufacturers are a compromise over using the same speaker. The reason that they make center speakers is most people can't accommodate a vertical speaker under their TV, and a lot of speakers won't work properly turned sideways. And they like to charge you more for the center channel so that they can make extra money. smile.gif

So best speaker for the center is the exact same speaker.

Audyssey can't do anything to help disparate speakers become timbre matched, so I wouldn't consider that an option if I were you. Wave Crest does show a picture of the HVL-1 on it's side, implying that's an approved way to run them. As mentioned previously, the only way to know for certain would be contact them and ask. That's your best bet at this point.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

Hey all - so I received the sub the other day and placed it in the corner where it would normally go... The problem is the sub is quite huge haha. It is definitely too large for my space - by quite a bit.

So I guess my next question is: I know that smaller subs will not work well with my room size, but are there any physically smaller subs that are still pretty powerful? The current sub seemed about 6" too deep and 2-4" too high and wide...

Thanks!
Chris

Did you ultimately get the NXG? If so, it's actually not all that large for a ported sub with a 12" driver. About the only smaller sub I can think of, that still has capability, is the SVS SB1000. I think it would probably struggle in a room the size of yours though.

Hitting your original price range, Cambridge Audio S20.

This group is giving you good advice on subs, but open floor plan condo, I'm guessing neighbors as well. I think a small sealed 10", which will only go down to 30 Hz or so may be a safer bet. It won't put out huge volume, but I'm guessing you don't go to reference levels is that condo either.

I'm in a somewhat bigger condo and am just using a pair of full-range towers because if I had the sub from my last house, the neighbors would be knocking on the door.
