Question Looking for speakers recommendation for HT under a low budget $600

Hi fellas, I'm new to this forum

I'm going through my very first steps in home theater, and I'm really overwhelmed with all the information out there.

From what I understand, the A/V receiver is one of the parts in a HT setup that one shouldn't spare the bucks on.
I'm planing to get the "Sony STRDN1080" receiver, as I saw several nice reviews on it and I want to leave some room for future possible upgrades.

As for my current requirements:

  1. I'm trying to stay around the $600 range for speakers (5.1). I'm a bit flexible on the budget in case it's really worth it.
  2. My listening priority is primarily movies (gonna play music/games, but it's much less important). I really want to focus on home theater (gonna have projector in the room of course).
  3. Room size gonna be pretty tiny - I assume around 12 feet on 12 feet
  4. Don't have any placement restrictions, as this room is gonna be dedicated to HT.
  5. I don't have any special audio preferences, however, I do wish to have bass that will fill the room without having to disrupt the neighbors upstairs with crazy bass volumes.
    I'm not sure whether it make sense or not, as I'm really doing my first baby steps in this setup.

I appreciate any feedback or suggestions!

That receiver is nice but at $599 this one is every bit as good with arguably better in room EQ and is only $329 giving you a much needed $270 in your speaker budget so your budget is now $900 or so.

Are you willing to do that as it will mean a vastly better subwoofer and overall listening experience.

The Center and Sub are the two most important speakers in a movie/tv surround system.

Crutchfield has $10/box returns on bookshelves within 60 days.

These speakers are on major discount at the moment, wood veneered.

Four of them will run $390, (two choices of wood veneer).

https://www.crutchfield.com/p_107RTI...?search=rti_a1

Center is $150 leaving you with around $500 or a bit less for the sub.

https://www.crutchfield.com/p_107CSI...arch=polk_csia

This is a great subwoofer deal but may not last beyond today.

Make sure the cabinet size is not too large for you but, for the money, it is the best bang for buck quality sub out there today.

Emotiva is having a good sale right now, I’d definitely check them out if you like the AMT sound.

Hi Geoff,

I can stretch the budget and get that Sony receiver as well. I just really like the idea of having all of the features that it offers (even though I most likely don't know what half of them mean...)
Upgrade flexibility is really important to me, and I rather spend a little extra on some features that now won't make sense to me, but won't limit me when I'll think of upgrades in the future.

By the way, you didn't mention which receiver exactly

It is crucial to pick the wood veneer and not the black ones? seems like they are listed for the same price.

I ordered the subwoofer

I may be having a cognitive loss episode, but I don't see a link for that receiver.

I would not worry too much about future proofing your receiver because they change rapidly and last year's model is usually a firmware update from being this year's model. So its is very possible to buy last year's model at a significant discount, do a firmware update, and you essentially have the current model depending on the brand you choose.

The Boston Acoustics are well regarded and on close-out pricing. Four of the A25s and the center would be a formidable system for both movies and music:

https://www.accessories4less.com/mak...r-black/1.html

... and they will look good next to the Monolith sub

In that small room, that combo should be more than you will ever need.

That is a GREAT deal on that sub; congratulations.

Here is the link to the receiver I forgot to put in; has every feature the Sony has.

https://www.amazon.com/d/AV-Receiver...ogy/B06XYD442J

Let us know you max budget after the receiver you settle on to see if there are other good free or easy to return speakers within budget.

One advantage to Denon over the Sony is that many more AVS members are very familiar with the EQ tweaking for Denon.

frys.com has the Jamo C series on sale right now. The C93 large bookshelf speakers are $259/pair, C9 center is $149 and the C91 bookshelf speakers are $189/pair. Some others are also available. These are really nice speakers and look pretty classy. If you don't already get frys.com promo codes, 2288 should work. Deal is today only.

NHT SuperOne 2.1. You can get them for around $100 per speaker on Amazon. Probably the best budget speaker out there. The NHT SuperCenter 2.1 I believe is around $150. Can't beat it.

Some updates:

I just ordered the Denon AVRX2400H from Amazon.

I ordered the 12" model... was that a bad decision/overkill?
To be honest - I didn't even pay attention to the driver size when I ordered it... just picked the first one from the list like a dumb consumer :S

As for my updated budget for the rest of it (2 front speakers, 2 rear, 1 center) - I'm not quite sure what should be decent speakers combination for the rest of the setup. It's possible to get decent 5 speakers in the ~$500 range?
(several recommendations were listed here, not sure what to go with though)

You guys are great and helpful. Appreciate everyone's help on this!!

If you got the Monolith THX Ultra 12 for $675, that's a great sub at a good price. Speaker wise in the $500 range, you could get the Jamo C series in piano white w/black fronts for $597/shipped. That's for the C93 large bookshelf speakers (fronts), C9 center and C91 bookshelf speakers (surrounds). I had the C93's and C9 previously and they are very good speakers and look dead sexy. Coupled with the Monolith 12, that's a killer set up.

Emotiva, Jamo, and Boston are real nice choices for your budget

Yes, that was the price that I got it for using the promo code

Checked your link for the Jamo speakers in Fry's. You sure that these are the prices? All I can find is some crazy prices for them (just the C93 for $649)

Add the speakers to your cart and enter 2288 in the promo code box. That will apply the discounts. Do note that with the bookshelf speakers they show only one speaker and don't make mention of them being sold in pairs, but they are. I had the C93's back when Amazon had their crazy fire-sale on these and the bookshelf speakers come in a pair in one box.

Damn that's some crazy discount I got there lol... didn't even think it's possible to get such a major discount from a promo code.
Ordered it in the white color, they definitely look slick and the reviews are very positive!

I guess that the last piece of the puzzle now will be some cables equipment?
Just to mention again - it's my first HT setup, so I'm not sure which type of cables I should get to put some life in that setup

Simple media bridge or Monoprice 14 gauge OFC speaker wire. Banana Plugs if needed, not required. 100 ft should be good, 250 ft if you never want to run out.

Mediabridge or Monoprice for RCA or Subwoofer Cables (they are the same thing).

Don’t spend a bunch of cables. They don’t add anything to improve sound quality.

Got you.
So if I get that right, I need the following?

1) One RCA cable that will connect the subwoofer to the Receiver
2) 14 Gauge speaker wire (at least 100 ft to connect 5 speakers to the receiver)
3) One HDMI cable to connect the TV to the receiver/bluray player?
4) Banana plugs to make the installation a bit easier/cleaner?

  1. Yep.
  2. Yep, should be plenty.
  3. Two HDMI cables; one from TV -> receiver and one from Bluray player -> receiver. (Receiver is the "hub".)
  4. Nice to have; optional extra.

Two HDMI cables. One to connect a BluRay player to the AVR, a second to connect the AVR to the TV.

Get Certified Premium HDMI cables. They're needed for 4k, but they not significantly more expensive than the older ones that can't do 18 Gbps. An example of one that I am using: https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters...r=1-1-fkmrnull

Done. I've ordered all of the relevant cables.

Thank you so much everyone for sharing your knowledge and helping me build this audio system.

Now it's time for me to open a new post in the projectors forum

Get Certified Premium HDMI cables. They're needed for 4k, but they not significantly more expensive than the older ones that can't do 18 Gbps. An example of one that I am using: https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters...r=1-1-fkmrnull
I was going to suggest this one.

I just noticed that I was recommended to get an RCA cable for the subwoofer, however, it doesn't seem to have such option. Only XLR?

There are even more expensive ones out there. People actually buy this stuff. Me: Perfectly happy with $35 speaker wire (100 feet) and $12 HDMI and sub cables.
