Starter speaker set for Denon AVR-3313CI ? Jamo S 426 HCS 3?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I currently have a Sony 55" Class (54.6" diag.) BRAVIA HX800 but no receiver or speakers.

I'm planning to buy Denon AVR-3313CI for a starter system. I'm getting a good deal on this on a display item for $499 (without remote). Or $574 with everything.

I was initially thinking of getting Jamo S 426 HCS 3 WENGE 5-Piece Home Theater System ($199) in Amazon. But now that I am getting this good receiver for less,
I'm wondering if this speaker set is a light weight for this receiver (it can only receive 6 ohms). But I do not want to spend too much on speakers right now.

Does anyone uses Jamo S426 HCS with this receiver?

Or there better alternatives for speakers in the price range of $200 to $300 ?

Thanks
Z

Although that is a good deal as the 3313CI is generally selling for $700 at most places, you can likely get the 1613 or 1713 at much less than MSRP on clearance but you have to "call" the sites to get their best deals as authorized resellers are required to list MSRP on their website. Unless there are specific features you need on the 3313CI not offered on the 1613 or 1713, you would be better served purchasing the lower model and using the savings on better quality speakers. As the general rule of thumb is to spend 2x the cost of the AVR on speakers, if you don't plan on purchasing a setup of roughly $1500 or more and you don't need the extra features offered (eg. HDMI Zone 2) than the 3313CI is WAY overkill for you and most especially as you're only saving about $125.

A good budget setup for the 1613/1713 would be the Energy Classic Take 5.1 which is often recommended in Denon threads.
