Help Needed with first time setup (JBL 190)

So newegg has the JBL 190's for 129.99 each with free shipping and i think it is a steal? also it isabout time i put together a home audio system. Problem is i am new to this whole thing and dont know at all what i am doing. I will start by saying that i will be using this for mainly listening to music and running the sounds for my TV as well. Not interested in surround sound. Not wanting to blow the roof off but i am looking for a decent sound.

my question is are these a good set of speakers to start with? what kind of receiver should i be looking for to power these without breaking the bank? (might add a sub later on but not for sure). main use is for mp3's and vinyl in a small home. any help would be great you guys as i am clueless when it comes to these things but am wanting to learn i am an open book



PS sorry if this was posted in the wrong section but it seemed appropriate


Thanks !

Denon refurb receiver

Start with the 190, they will have some nice bass - then you decide if you want a sub or not.
If you decide to expand, then you can save up for a sub woofer.
