As with the subwoofer forum we get asked daily for recommendations for speakers on "X" budget.


Not to say the thread in the Subwoofer forum has killed this request but it helps to reference that thead.


If one of you more established contributors could start such a thread it may allow the forum to address other topics of interest to all of us...

You know what they say about volunteering!

As I recall, you were one of the people asking for recommendations just a few months ago. Seems a bit hypocritical to now complain about such threads.



Although the forums do get cluttered with recommendation threads, I personally hate the giant threads (see the Audyssey thread for example).

I still ask for recommendations but have learned right on this forum that speakers are very subjective. I have also learned here that for the most part people push brands they own and personally there is nothing wrong with that. But how do you come to a pair of speakers at a specific price point which would satisfy everyone?

I think the point is, a couple times EVERY day, someone comes on here and says "I want a a full 5.1 speaker system and I have (500, 1000, 1,500, 2,000) dollars to spend, who can recommend a speaker or speaker system"!

If we had a couple threads titled "best 5.1 speaker system under 1,000", etc and people can post their opinions in that thread, then a newbie, like I was 3 years ago, can go to that thread and look at people's opinions and recommendations! And of course people push the brands they own or have owned, that is the only brand they know well! I will recommend EMP or Def Tech SM speakers for certain budgets, becuase I can say with certainty that those speakers sound good for the money! I have also owned Bose, Polk M and Pioneer AJ speakers, but don't recommend those as I was less pleased with their performance.

And even an AV enthusiast with a mediocre knowledge of speakers, like myself, can use the threads when we are considering an upgrade. My next purchase might benefit form a "Best speaker system for 3000 or less" thread!

I see what you're saying. My point was that when you say "the Best speakers at $1500" for example, wouldn't you offend people who do not own that best pair at a specific price point and the thread would become useless at that point because people would start arguing, no?

Best from whose perspective? I guess you haven't learned the difference between subjective versus objective from that other thread?

Why don't you go look at the subwoofer thread...that way you can answer your own question.
