I've been really enjoying a little pair of Mordaunt-Short 902's for the last 6 months or so along with the 905 center and 903 surrounds (O.K., wish I had the larger 506's but...) and a Dayton/HSU 10"...

I don't think the 677 and 477 have a phono input so you would have to get an external phono pre amp.
