I'm looking to start in the world of audio and have come across some speakers and a receiver (which I can't link yet..) Is there anything else better for this price? Will these two pieces work well together?

I'm thinking about $1000 for a receiver + 5.1 (or 7.1) speaker setup. I'd be picking these up locally (if I can find them), so don't worry about factoring in shipping.

you could add in the tower version, the X-SLS, for $100 more


Alternatively, you could go X-SLS up front @$320/pair

Add an X-CS center for $140, and pair of cheaper rears for ~$75, add ~$120 to ship it, youre at a little over $600, which gives you plenty of room for a receiver.


You could max out your budget by upgrading the X-SLS to X-MTM and adding a pair of X-LS as rears instead of the cheaper random brand.

I auditioned these yesterday, and was very, impressed. Here is also a review from Audioholics.


Usher S-520's

You could purchase 5 of these, and get a inexpensive receiver. Add a sub down the road. Something to think about.

In that price range including the receiver you would be very limited(buying new)! Since you're starting off from ground zero there's no rush! Buy the best speakers your budget will allow and then the receiver, remember to allocate most of the budget for the speakers. There are lots of choices in your budget, but not if your looking at a 5.1 set up and receiver.


Good Luck, Billy p

ps: Maybe look into those Ushers($400.00/pair) to start off with and build out from there!

Cost has little to do with it! As long as you feel confident with your purchase and liked the way it sounded, that's all the validation you need.



Good luck and enjoy
