Sorry if my question is a redundant one. You all have a great forum here and I would like some help if you have time.
I have a new house and a small budget for home audio. I would like some help choosing some of the components.
Here is some basic info.
I want to use my setup for 50/50 music listening and home theatre. My main room is about 25 by 25 feet with a 10 foot ceiling, and a giant stone fireplace in the middle. It has hardwood floors so there is some echo. I will be setting up the speakers and receiver on one side. I know that is not an ideal room but it is the best option as other rooms are too small.
After reading some reviews, I have decided the Yamaha 673 fits my needs and is the right price. I am now looking for floor speakers to fill up the space with quality sound. I would like help picking these especially because there are so many. I plan to add a sub next, then maybe some additional rear channel speakers or other speakers throughout the house for music listening.
Here are some I have considered.
Infinity Primus 363 (mu first choice but might extend the budget a bit for right now).
Pioneer Andrew Jones Floor Speakers.
Sony SSF 5000 or 7000
Again the budget for these is 200-400.
Any input or additional setup advice is greatly appreciated.
