Media room size is 13x21x7(H).  I am looking at the following deal.

Is this worth it ? Can I do better ?  Budget is 2k for speakers and receiver.

 

Thanks.

Is this worth it ?

Only you can decide that.

 

Can I do better ?

Yes but it will cost more.

 

Have you auditioned Klipsch speakers.  Some find the horn tweeters bright.  Others find them harsh.  There's nothing worse than spending all of this money on a system only to find out you can't stand how it sounds.

Welcome to the forum Durian :)

 

Robert is right on.  And Ill add that horns are very forward and in your face.  Luckily Klipsch is one of the easiest speakers to audition, got a Best Buy close to you?  Not the best environment to audition speakers but is better than a deaf buy.

Front L/R  - JBL L820   - Ordered (Later L890 - when the price is lower)

Center - JBL LC2 - Ordered

SR L/R  - JBL L820 - Ordered

Sub - BIC F12 - Ordered

 

Receiver - Denon AVR-2313ci  (Not yet) Any other recomendation ?  I am going to get refurburshied from accessories4less

Nothing wrong with the 2313.

 

I always recommend AVR with pre-outs in case you ever want to run a pair off the AVR. But hard to spend the extra dough on the 3313 based on how cheap the 2313 is compared to it. (unless you can go back to the 3312 or 3311 without losing some "modern" feature* that lives in the XX13 that wasn't around when the XX11 and XX12 were new)

 

*And that would require you to download the manuals for the 3311/12/13 and read them to see if there is something the 3313 has the other two don't...just from being 1 and 2 model years newer.

I too was considering the 2313, but stock on them has dried up. I got Best Buy to drop the price on its replacement the 2000, to $550, and I heartily recommend it.

I lost my signature and all I got was this Nutter t-shirt
