I picked up a Yamaha RX-A730 Receiver and now I need some speakers.  I want to keep it simple, no need to go crazy because I'm in an apartment..

 

The room is about 11ftx16ft and very open.  TV and sofa are 11ft apart.  

 

I'm going to order a blu-ray player, probably the Sony 6200.  

 

We have a cheap Sony boxed home theater setup that is being replaced.  Lets say my speaker budget is under $500, what is recommended?   We love to watch movies, and I'm a baseball junkie.   

 

Thanks.

I had a Yamaha RX867 (similar to RX-A800) with Energy speakers. Thought it was a nice combo. If you go bookshelf you will probably want a sub. Another thing to think about is going used (here, Audiogon, Craigslist). I have been using a phantom center (no center channel, make sure to configure your Yammie to not have one) recently and really haven't missed the center. Keeping in mind my primary listening is right in the middle.

Is there a size limit on your speakers? Can you have towers, bookshelf or satellites?

It seems to me that many would recommend the Pioneers. Either the floor standing or bookshelf speakers and the center channel. On sale that would cost $223. That would give you $275 for a subwoofer. The pl-200 could be had for that amount. That would be a very nice system. And then worry about surrounds later.

Thanks for all the replies.. No size limit...

Right now I have 2 satellite speakers on the side of the sofa, a center unit, sub and two floor standing / tower speakers..

I can do the same or different..

Well for a $500 price limit your options are going to be limited. Based on what others have said around here, the Pioneers would be the way to go

This Pioneer setup?

What if I went a little higher, would the consensus still be, Pioneer?

@nyc eng, with a budget of $500 for 5 speakers and a sub, I suggest you are unlikely to get a paricularly satisfying level of audio performance. Also, although it's a good unit, you have overspent on the Yamaha RX-A730 in comparison to your speaker budget. For a balanced HT audio spend, a general guideline would be to spend around 20-25% of the budget on electronics, with the balance split fairly evenly between speakers and sub(s).

All is not lost! There are strategies to address this if you're interested. The first is an increased budget (naturally), possibly through holding off and saving up some more. The second is an adjunct and that is to build your setup over time as funds become available. The idea is that you don't need to go straight to a 5.1 setup and spread your budget thin. Instead, spend it on a higher quality 2.1 system initially and build your system over time. In 12 to 18 months you'll end up with a far more satisfying surround sound setup.

A quality bookshelf/sub combo will keep you satisfied for months until you've saved for the next speaker purchase. The idea is to pick a "family" of speakers you like and just purchase say the mid-sized bookshelf of the range to use as mains. Later, the matching centre channel speaker can be added. In the meantime, your AVR can be configured to redirect the centre channel signal to the mains and you get a "phantom" centre effect. The next move is the surround speakers. Here you have the option of getting larger bookshelves or floorstanding towers for the mains and re-purposing your bookshelves to surround duty or simply buying matching surround speakers.

I have to dash off now, so I have to cut this short of some recommendations at the moment. If you're interested in pursuing this idea, I'll return with some recommendations for expandable 2.1 setups.

This is a whole new world for me so if my philosophy in buying speakers is completely out of whack, I'm fine with making adjustments, I just need some guidance.

Once you get the pioneer speakers, your money would be best spent on a better sub.  I would recommend the Pioneer speakers, then bump your budget for the SVS PB1000 subwoofer for $499.  The sub will by far be the weakest link in a $500 5.1 setup, as that is the price point that a true 20Hz capable home theater sub starts at.

 

As someone else suggested, you might even be better served stepping up to a quality set of $300/pair bookshelf speakers, a matching center, and a decent entry level sub like I mentioned.

 

$300/pair price range gets you a boatload of very good quality bookshelf speaker options.  To me, this is a great value price point, as you are at the point where you have to spend a lot more to get minor performance improvements.


AVR:       Yamaha RXV-375

Display:  Panasonic  TH-50PC77U

LCR:       Hsu HB1.2  HC1.2

Sub:       (2) PSA XV15se

I agree with what nyc eng is saying, but here is a different strategy you can take...
First, can you return that reciever? makes no sense to have a 600 dollar + reciever powering 500 dollar speakers. If you can return the reciever, you can get a perfectly good, more entry level reciever for 300 or under. That would put another 300 into your speaker budget, and at around 800 dollars, you have a large number of options open to you that are not there at 500 dollars.
If not, I would advice you spend the entire 500 dollars on a really good set of bookshelves speakers/center. Run 2.0 or 3.0 for awhile, then upgrade #1 would be a good sub and upgrade #3 can be surrounds, or better fronts and move the first set to the rear.
Or buy used and try to get the best 5.1 set used you can. Otherwise, your only options are HTIBs and cheaper sets of speakers!

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

I don't want to return the receiver, I'm fine with stepping up the budget, I just have no idea how much more.  

 

What should I be looking at?  When I bought the receiver I asked about speakers and the guy recommended Monitor.  

 

I'd prefer the bookshelf speakers since the space isn't huge.

You have a mid level receiver and the budget for entry/poor speakers (if you buy newor get the full 5.1). A great receiver won't make crappy speakers sound good...smile.gif Conversely, great speakers can still sound good even with an entry level receiver. Plus, the technology is changing fast in electronic and not so fast in speakers! So, 5 years from now, your speakers will still sound the same, but your AVR might not be usable...(just ask anyone who bought a non HDMI receiver 5 years ago)!
As Gieger reccomends, it is often suggested that no more than 20-25% be spent on the AVR...so 2-3 time the cost of your AVR in speakers is a good budget to star with.
For a front stage, the Ascend Acoustic CMT340s are great (don't own them, but have listened to them a lot) and with the matching center, that will be just under 1000 bills. If that is out of range, the AA 170s are the little brother to the 340 (single woofer versus two). Focal, Wharfdale, Cambridge Audio, Kef, Def Tech, EMPtek all have speakers that would fit into a "slightly expanded" budget.
Subs, well as mention, the SVS Pb1000 might be the best 500 dollar or less sub you can find. It will ship to your house for around 499.00...

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

I agree with Eli and Giegar; you are likely better off saving for a great "pair" of fronts now, and then getting the matching center in the months to come.  The subwoofer recommendation is excellent as well.  

 

Another option is the Polk RTiA series of speakers.  They are relatively affordable and I have read multiple good reviews on them.  I am actually considering them for my upgrade as well.  I have looked extensively at the Ascend Acoustics and Wharfdales... I have not heard them but they are highly regarded here on the forums, but it seems to me they that might require a little more power to reach "full" potential.  Maybe someone might have a more knowledgeable opinion on that subject.  The Polk's will perform well with the lower powered AVR like the Yamaha you have already purchased.

Polk even has the RTi-series the pervious generation of the RTi-A's which are really just a cosmetic upgrade over the RTi-series to my ears when I did a head to head of the RTi A1's vs my RTi4's. Check out Polk Audio's offical ebay store they got some great deals

That's a good setup, and the sub recommended by Audioholics in their review of the Pioneer speakers.

Infinity p363 is such a great value, i would go with that. Stomps over the competition in this price range, but that is just my opinion. I love my p363 so much, I think i may eventually go higher up in the same line. Hope to get some revels some day.

Once again, I just want to thank everyone for their input.  

 

It looks like I am narrowed down to HSU, Polks, and Ascend Acoustic... Once I get a chance I'll spend some more time and hopefully pull the trigger on something.

Have you thought about the NHT's at all?  I've been going back and forth between a few different models/brands but keep finding myself marveling over the NHT's.  I like how easy they look like they'd be to mount.  Also, they have a sealed design which fascinates me.  They can be had for a reasonable price supposedly from a gentlemen here on AVS who is an authorized dealer.  

 

Does anyone have any experience with NHT's?  Anybody read an horrific or negative reviews on them?

Yes, we do have excellent pricing on NHT.

I can get fairly close to the $500 budget on a Super Zero 2.1 system.

Not a gentleman though. :-)

Funny!  I can't wait to audition a set of NHT's.  

 

I hate to hijack this thread, but for the life of me can't find any info on what would be the best solution for mounting a pair of NHT Absolute Zero's on the ceiling.  NHT's website says to use the Omnimount 20.0 which supposedly is available on their website (cannot find them there or anywhere).  I'm thinking that the 10.0's would suffice but was wondering if anyone had any experience in this regard.

This route isn't that bad for sticking at the $500 price point.  I would however, recommend either saving for a little while longer, or forgoing the subwoofer for now, and spend the $500 you have on a set of 4 bookshelf speakers and possibly a matching center.  With that said, bookshelf speakers should be a minimum of 5.25 inches IMO.  I say this because I can almost guarantee that the OP will be underwhelmed and this may likely lead to a massive amount of disappointment and depression :) as I know anything under that spec will not produce the output that even a mediocre audiophile would enjoy.  

 

Infinity makes a great speaker, I have read many a positive review.  If I was a fan, and had to have the Infinity Primus, than I would go no less in the bookshelf category than the P153.  The frequency range between the P153 and P143 is astounding.  According to their website, the P143 has a +/- 3db frequency response of 100hz on the low end.  The P153 however, has a low end of 58hz.  That's a pretty big difference and what that the listener will undoubtedly notice and thus regret day in an day out until he ends up selling them on Craigslist for next to nothing and upgrading to the P153! :) 

 

Perhaps get four P153's now, save up until you see their center PC351 goe on sale for next to nothing like the rest of their line, and than you'll have their complete set. Lastly, depending on your room size, save up for an SVS PB-2000 or PSA XV15.
