Hello everyone. Not many posts from me at this forum, to be honest, it's pretty overwhelming most of the time, as I am an electronics novice. However, I recently decided to upgrade to a home theater system, but in steps.
The first step is purchasing two decent front speakers and a receiver. Most likely 5.1, my living room is small, and I would prefer to only deal with the two rear speakers. (I won't be purchasing the center and rear spearers for a while, just getting started now. A sub would also come later)
I've decided on these Klipsch front speakers:
I guess I can't link...they are Klipsch F-20 floor standing speakers. copying specs:

SENSITIVITY 95.5dB @ 2.83V / 1m
NOMINAL IMPEDANCE 8 ohms compatible
CROSSOVER FREQUENCY 1600Hz
HIGH FREQUENCY DRIVERS 1" (2.54cm) Aluminum diaphragm compression driver mated to 90° x 60° square Tractrix® Horn
LOW FREQUENCY DRIVERS Dual 6.5" (16.5cm), magnetically shielded IMG woofers

So of course, I need a receiver to connect them and my blu-ray player to. (Actually, haven't purchased blu-ray yet either.)
I've been reading reviews and the Denon AVR1610 seems like a pretty solid option for what I need.
Just realized I can't talk about price, so I had to edit this. Sorry. Obviously, either receiver would work for me.
I don't game or anything, so the only HDMI inputs I would have are a cable box and the blu-ray player. (leaving one of the 3 HDMI inputs open)
Am I making a solid choice for my needs? Just looking for a good buy that will last...I'm not audiophile.
Thanks in advance.
