    Hi everyone!

    I just purchase H/K AVR320 receiver last week and can't decide which speaker packages to go with, for 80% movie and 20% for music.

    I would like to go with one of the choice below…

    A. JBL NSP1 II with 12" JBL sub for around $500
    B. AR-HC6 package for around $400
    C. HTD level II or for around $550
    D. Energy 5+1 system for $500

    This price is with out shipping or tax.

    Room size is going to be 20x18 ft and has carpet floor, open back to dinning area. Ceiling is about 10ft.

    So far only speakers I could listen to was JBL speakers at BB. So I have no Ideas what other speaker sounds like

    Thank you for your help.

    Mason

    I really like the sound of PSB speakers - you can find some good deals on packages here. I bought this set a few months ago and I'm still blown away by how good they sound (they're B stock but the only flaws I found were a few very smal scratches on the back of one speaker).

    fwiw, the energy speakers (which i've never heard) always seem to get speaker-of-the-year type awards. sght gave the 5.2 system the award again this year.

    there is no wrong answer here. just remember to audition as many speakers as you can and choose the ones that sound best to *you*.
