I've finally selected 2 out of 3 components for my first surround system, to be used primarily for HT and PS3. I'll be buying a Denon 1910, and BIC F12. Now I just need to get some speakers...


I was going to buy the Energy Take 5s, but they are priced pretty high right now ($230 on Newegg, and I've seen them for $150 on there). I'm now looking at other speaker options since I refuse to pay $230 for a product I could have gotten at $150. I'm assuming I can use that $80 "extra" on a higher quality set.


What other good stuff is out there that would match my system level? I'd like to try to keep it around $250. FYI this is for use in a 15'x10' carpeted bedroom, but I may move this system to my slightly larger living room which has an open floor plan.


Thanks.

Perhaps the Jamo C401 system? 2 pairs of C401s and the C400 center.

Just to rub it in, they used to have a coupon code that lowered the $150 price to $120.

I do prefer the smaller speakers for this room... there's not too much space for towers. That was one of the reasons I was drawn to the Energy Take 5's. I'll check out those Jamos.


Any other suggestions guys?

Anyone...? I did find the HSU VT-12's, but those don't really seem to be too much better than the Energy's, and it sounds like they are very sensitive to room placement...

I've listened to the c401's and they actually sound pretty good, for their price in my opinion, it's a fantastic deal.
