Hello, I'm a newbie to this HT stuff and have a few questions. I'm getting a Panasonic SA-HE100 receiver and need a fairly cheap but decent sounding speakers. I'm just getting 2 for now. Anything for under $350 or($500cnd). Or should I just go out and get a 6 piece sat and sub package. Online is not an option. The shipping, duty and brokerage fee to canada would probably cost me more. I'm going to listen to some speakers tommorow and need a starting point. I don't need really good sound, but want to get my moneys worth.

Where are you in Canada? Our shop in Ottawa has a batch of Dahlquist speakers in factory seconds going cheap right now plus the enitre Axiom brand of speakers are on clearout cheap.
Please shoot me an email if you are interested.
If you are in Canada, I think you will find the Canadian speakers are the best value in general.

I'm in calgary. Are energy speakers any good? Can't test speakers today, there was a snow storm last night and it's still snowing right now.

You might want to check out Axiom's factory outlet that sells slightly "blemished" speakers. From what I've read you can hardly notice the imperfections and they list them in Canadian and US dollars.
It's http://www.axiomaudi...toryoutlet.html
There's also www.canuckaudiomart.ca if you're willing to go used.

Energy speakers are good but you should take a listen to any of the Canadian brands (Axiom, Dahlquist, Energy, Paradigm, PSB) for good sounding speakers at good prices.

Ordering from Marc's store is an option you should consider. I haven't done so, but those that have speak positively of the service and prices he offers.
