I'm on the verge of buying the Onkyo TX-SR605 receiver and I'm having one heck of a time finding suitable speakers for it. Right now I'm looking for only a 5.1 setup. I've been checking out the Polk Audio RM6750 5.1 setup and they seem like a pretty good deal.

I'm looking to spend around $500 give or take. I don't need anything that's overly loud since I live in an apartment, but I just want a really nice surround sound setup without annoying the neighbors. A subwoofer isn't even really needed.

What do you think?

the SR605 way outclasses RM6750 speakers. The typical budget consideration is about 1/3rd for the receiver, 2/3rds for the speakers. The finest receiver in the world will sound like crap with poor speakers. Is the $500 budget for speakers "absolute" ?

See if you have a Circuit City near you that has the Kef 2005.2 system on clearance (and in stock).

who ever said money can't buy love never bought a puppy.

$500 is kinda slim for a budget. I have the 605 also and at first I wanted to spend around $700. Didn't happen, I spent closer to $1400 and that is a modest amount. Try Aperion, very good speakers. http://www.aperionaudio.com

I'm also trying to figure out what speakers I want to go with a TX-SR605. The space in my basement is small so I don't need anything too big. I'm looking to just put 2 of the speakers mounted on the wall next to the TV (one on each side) and then maybe put some more on speaker stands or something.

if you are really budget constrained, you might try these speakers from "the speaker company"
http://www.thespeakercompany.com/ser...uctID=95712500
This is a new dealer with free shipping, 30 day trial and free return shipping with all the original packing....what have you got to lose ? PS: check the company address on the web site, then check Denon or Marantz....it's the same !
