    What is your budget for speakers? The documentation is somewhat vague - which doesn't necessarily bode well for their overall performance.

    My gut tells me there would be better alternatives available to you. Where are you located? What brands/retailers are available in your area?

    That system has an anemic subwoofer - 8" and 120 watts. That's not much at all.

    The documentation does not specify a "nominal" impedance. It only lists "4-8 ohm" which may or may not work with your receiver (you want 8 ohm speakers ideally, you can probably get by with 6 ohm speakers, but 4 ohm speakers should be avoided). Hence the confusion.

    If you can provide more details on budget and what's available to you, I'm certain we can make a better recommendation.

    I see you started a separate thread for the same question (http://www.hometheaterforum.com/t/324580/5-1-speaker-system-recommendation-for-vsx-527-k).

    Hi Jason,
    Thank you for the reply. I live in Vienna. I guess I can reach all of the popular brands.
    Most of the brands just gives interval for the impedance. They don't write exact number for it.
    I am going to use it at 25 sqm room. I guess I don't need so powerful tool. My budget is around 500 EUR for receiver and speaker system. I am planing to buy Pioneer VSX-527-K and it is around 270 EUR. It is 6 ohm receiver. Do you have any 5.1 speaker system recommendation which will be around 200 EUR and fit to this receiver.
    Thanks in advance.
