Need help with Speakers

Hi guys,

I'm starting at the HT's world and need some help to find a good speaker to my receiver. Already got the receiver Denon avr-s720w. My room is 3,5m x 4,5m.

I'm thinking about start with a pair of JBL Arena 180.

What do you guys think about that?

Thanks a lot.

Are you in the US?

Those speakers are $700/pair here, is that what you will be paying?

What kind of music if any will you be listening to with this HT system?

What are you thinking of for a sub?

For HT generally you put more money into the sub and center than you do into the main left and right unless you are also listening to a lot of music in stereo.

What is your TOTAL budget for 5 speakers and a sub or are you building it slowly starting with 2 speakers?

First of all, thanks for answer so fast.
I'm from Brazil.
I found it on Paraguay for $350/pair. If you have any other suggestion, please let me know.
Will use this HT to watch some movies/TV and PS4, and listening Rock'n Roll sometimes.
As i said before, i'm a newbie on this world, so dont have any idea which Sub should get.
For start, i dont want waste more the $500.

Thanks.

Those speakers are a good choice for movies and rock and roll, not so much for jazz, classical or acoustic music.

I have no idea what sub brands are available in Brazil, (I was born in Curitiba of British parents but moved to Colombia when I was 2, then UK, USA, Belgium and back to the USA), so you'll have to provide us some links of what might be available to you.

I'm guessing a good sub that plays down to 20hz will be very hard for you to find in Brazil/Paraguay vs. what we have here in the US.

The Arena speakers will not be bad -- all listening is subjective, and I do not depend on reviewer ears to speak for my ears.

Also check Amazon in Brazil and see what they might have

So no hi fi stores in Brazil?

Googling Home Subwoofer Brazil get me nothing for the most part other than some very expensive KEFs that only play down to 30hz.

I see they sell Yamaha subwoofers in Brazil; just buy an inexpensive Yamaha SW012 sub; it only plays down to 28hz, (I have two in my secondary room), but at least it is not expensive and will give you some added depth; but can't use unless you are using an amp with an RCA sub out and built in crossover as it lacks a crossover and speaker level inputs.

The slightly more expensive Yamaha subs do though...so if you're going to get a sub that only plays to 28hz or so no need to spend KEF money on it.

subs for sure
speakers, the svs get high reviews and recommendations
but they have 2 product lines for speakers
prime and ultra

Audyssey is a great start, but not always a great finish.
