Hello everyone,

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.

The Infinity Primus and Andrew Jones speakers are in a better class than the Sonys. Rule the Sonys out.

Also look into these Polk Monitor speakers that are on special at Newegg. Given you have a big room fill with sound, I might go with them over the other two. They should be a little easier to drive with your receiver.

I've not heard the Infinitys or the Sonys, but can heartily recommend the Pioneer FS52s. Incredible for the price.

I strongly recommend the Pioneer speakers.

IMO they will sound much better than any of the others, and if you do some research and read some reviews you will find a number of opinions that will back me up on that.

The Sonys are very poor, and the Infinity speakers are fair at best.

The Pioneers are quite amazing for their price; they sound as good as some speakers costing 2 to 3 times as much.

The BS22 speakers are only around $130 per pair and are also amazingly good.
