I have two objectives here. The first is to get some decent sound to replace my Vizio TV's pitiful speakers. I want to be able to hear voices and music clearly - too often I have to pump the volume on this TV when it's all dialog, and then I have to drop it way low when music comes on during movies - I think the voice range is really weak on the internals.


The second objective is to get some speakers I'll be happy with for my future surround system, whenever I have the cash to get it. Perhaps I can use the speakers I buy now as rear speakers in the future.


I figured I'd get a cheap stereo amplifier for now instead of a cheap 5.1 or 7.1 receiver to get more bang for the buck as I won't be using any surround features for a while, and I'll want to replace a cheap receiver anyway when I upgrade to a full sound experience.


I'm looking for bookshelf speaker and stereo receiver/amp recommendations - total budget is about $250 (wish it was more, but that's the way it is!). It would be smarter to spend more on the speakers since I plan to continue using them in the future.


Can anyone help? Thanks!

Check on Amazon, there are quite a few "Home Theater Systems" listed in your price range. That is where I would start.

You can find a decent AVR for $159 from A4L (Factory reconditioned)

Onkyo TXSR506

I have not heard the Energy speakers, but they seem to be pretty popular and well received. Energy C-100 Bookshelf Speakers $118

That would put you at $277, and would be the start of a pretty good budget system.
