I am looking to invest in some audio system and this is what i came up with after a bit of research. Let me know what you think about it and/or any worthy improvements. Room size is about 12x10 so its pretty much small. I have a few options and im not sure which way to go. I dont want to spend more than 1000 after taxes on this setup(including cables, banana plugs, etc.) Oh and if you know any sites where i could get these components cheaper then would love to know it! 

 

 

Receiver: Sony STR-DN840 7.2 Channel 1050-Watt A/V Receiver

 

I really like this receiver cause of the wifi and bluetooth connectivity but if you have anything similar to this and cheaper to offer im willing to listen.

 

 

 

Speakers&Sub: Energy RC-Micro 5.1 Surround Speaker System 

 

However, i would really like to substitute the subwoofer with this one(BIC PL-200 Acoustech Platinum Series Subwoofer) and just keep the speakers but i think its not possible anymore to buy the speakers alone. What speakers would you recommend me to this BIC sub if i were to buy it? I really like the size of the speakers and a decent specs that comes along with the energy setup so i would love the speakers to be somehow similar in sizing.

thanks for a suggestion. I was actually checking that site out too and they have better prices than amazon but their shipping costs make it about the same after all, maybe if i buy everything at once then it will be cheaper even with this high shipping rate.

I would definitely get different speakers. Something like these Pioneer speaker.(The series ending in one are less expensive).

The sub you have for your budget is a good choice.
