Help Finding 2.1 Setup ~$350

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to purchase a 2.1 setup for 100% music use. I want to go beyond typical "computer speakers." My budget is more or less $350. I mostly listen to Hip-Hop with the occasional Dubstep thrown in. The music may be played at relatively high volumes. I have no related equipment and would be willing to buy anything, whether it be an amp/receiver and speakers or just a set of powered speakers and a sub. I would be willing to purchase the speakers now and possibly add a sub later.

Please make your recommendations or ask further questions. I would really appreciate the help. Thanks!

You will need a subwoofer at some point for hip-hop and dub step. I would recommend starting with a decent 2.0 and receiver. I've listed some budget options below to be paired with a Denon 1612 receiver ($189 at accessories4less).

Pioneer BS41 or BS22 book shelf speakers-$94(Amazon) or $112(Amazon)
Infinity Primus 163s $170(Amazon)
Cambridge S30 ($219)

Adding on to this, the Infinity Primus 163's can be had around $110-120 after shipping for a pair as they are currently on sale at Electronics Expo with a promo code.

This is definitely a possibility, and most likely what I will do. Thank you. Any other options for receivers?

Well, you're kind of limited with the $350 budget. The 1612 is about the best deal to be had right now. Otherwise you'll need to allocate at least $250 for the receiver and that will get you the entry-level models from Yamaha, Onkyo, or Denon. There are some cheaper stereo receivers from Sherwood (4503) or Onkyo (8050).

Alright. I really appreciate the help.

Just bought a Denon 1613 receiver and a pair of Klipsch KB-15's.
