So I have purchased the sony str dn-840. So I am looking for a set of speakers tht would be compatible with this reciever. I have heard many. I do have some favs but they are 4ohms.
So my question is. What speaker brand would be best compatible with this receiver.
My budget is $1000-$1500.
A little background is my space size is 20'lx20'wx6'8"h. And it will manly be used for movies and gaming.
In and around my area are all box stores. Futureshop best buy. One mom and pop shop who specialize in pardigm.
So I have heard them all.
I have never ordered something like that online. Afraid of the shipping and possibly wrecking the speaker or losing cables.
Yes I am in canada. And sorry when I put cables I meant the wiring inside.
I do want big sound. For movies and gaming. I have a projector in my basement with a 93 inch screen.
I am just looking for advice on what speakers will work well with the sony reciever since I can't get any real clarification online. Thought I could get some info on people that have used or still use a sony reciever or the one I have. That's all.
Honestly if a cable was to come loose during shippiing it can happen when its shipped to the store as well. Buying from a licensed dealer online gets you the warranty just the same if something is wrong.
The polks are the ones I heard in store an I was not impressed. As for the engery. I have only heard the take classics an I did like them. The ones that you have posted were in box so didn't get a chance to hear their sound. But I did like the smaller version in the take classic. Hopefully the sound is just as good.
As for the previous ones you stated the HTD have nothing but great reviews. Maybe I will give them a shot since they have a risk free 30 day trial.
Thank you for the help.
Are their any others that you would recommend with my budget.
Definitely don't use 4 ohm speakers with that receiver. That said, I like Monitor Audio, Kef, Paradigm, PSB, Axiom, Ascend, and Aperion speakers. A few of these are Canadian making them easy to find so get out and listen to as many as possible as speakers all have a personality and have a major impact on the sound of your system.
I really liked my Cambridge Audio S30s with my STR DN1040... currently they are hooked up to my older Sony receiver which is dedicated for my turntable. I love the sound from these little speakers. If I was in the market for a 5.1 set up I would certainly look at Cambridge's other offerings.
