No worries about going “off topic.” I ended up not getting plugs anyway. First time ever wiring speakers and it works! I’m not as dumb as I thought I was.
As to what I actually bought, it was the Elacs and the center and a Denon S640H. Total with the wire was $635.
The only speakers I was able to demo at store were the Elacs. The Polk lineup and the Klipsch demos were messed up. Sony was the only other lineup with the bookshelves that cost like $75 (forgot the model name) but I wasn’t too impressed with those.
Salesman was nice enough actually. Actually knew more than I would have given him credit for. I have until Jan 12th to return anything as well for a full refund.
But wiring up the speakers was easy enough, but I knew I’d run into this issue due to the small size of my desk. The center and the AVR is pretty much the only thing I can fit on my desk, so as I expected, I gotta buy some stands. I’m going on vacation for two weeks so I won’t be able to fully test the speakers out, but what I heard so far I loved. I did enough setup to at least see if I wired it up correctly and to see if everything including my sub plays fine, which it does. Do priority number one now is to buy some stands before I get into calibration or anything like that as my room in general is a big old mess now.
I even had the speakers pointed in different directions, but the difference between even a setup like this and the soundbar I had before is a night and day difference.
Thanks to all that have helped so far. I’ll update you guys again when I get a good pair of stands.
