To start off I'll say that I know very little about home audio/theater.
I was recently given a Yamaha RX-V2095 receiver. The specs are as follows:
| Seven Channels: 100 watts/channel Front Left/Center/Right, Rear Left/Right, 25 watts/channel Front Effects (two channels) |
DD, DTS, Pro Logic Decoding
36 Sound Fields (DSP)
Six-Channel Pre-Ins and Pre-Outs
Now, my primary use for this right now is simply listening to audio CDs. I am not particularly worrlied about all the surround sound features as I'm working on a bit of a budget build for now.
So I suppose what I really need are front speakers and I would imagine a powered sub.
What I don't know is what to look for to "match" the speakers with my room (living room) and the receiver I have.
Also, to save money I might be interested in a "do it yourself" speaker enclosure build.
FWIW, I listen to a lot of jazz and classical, as well as quite a bit of rock, metal, and country.
I appreciate any tips you guys can give me! Thanks!
