Hi. I am new to the forum and new to the audio portion of home theater hardware. I have an Onkyo 504 receiver and was wondering what some of the best speakers and subs are for a combined total under $500 (The wife has me on a budget). I have read many posts on different forums and some people recommend the cht front row system and the sub the athena as-p4000. The room is roughly 20'x18'. As I said I am new to this and had a few other questions also. Would I need an amp for speakers or the sub or is their enough power in the receiver. Also, say I only wanted to buy the speakers right now, would I be able to use just them for a while until I find a good sub? Lastly, I have read some good reviews about the athena micra 6 system. How would that do? If I can go cheaper than $500 that would be a bonus but not a must. Thanks for all the help. There are just so many options out there. Thought I would let the experts help me out on this one.
