I'm about to purchase some speakers and I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything. I'm a college with not a whole lot of money so I'm getting stuff in steps in order to get stuff that's a little better. I just got a Marantz SR-6200 receiver and I'd like to get a pair of speakers. It's not surround, but it's a start and it should be much better than my TV speakers. Here's what I'm looking for: I'm not too concerned about playing really loud and I don't really care about playing really low, at the price of sound quality. I'm looking for the most neutral speakers that I can find. I'm also looking for speakers that I can ultimately use as surrounds when I upgrade my front speakers, so a brand with better models than what I'm getting is good. With this in mind I think I'm going to build a pair of GR-Research AV-1s. If anyone has any opinions for or against these speakers, I would be very much interested in hearing them. I know it's best to listen before you buy, but I'm also of the opinion that the internet direct companies offer the best value. Any help is appreciated.
