I'm trying to setup a nice 2-channel system on a (*gasp*) college budget. My primary use/concern will be music, with movies being of little concern to me. I also have no planson buying a sub, so whatever speakers I choose ought to have sufficient bass response for music on their own. My budget is around $300 for the pair. Here are my considerations so far: JBL N38/II ~$300 Mirage Frx-5 ~$300 Athena AS-F1 ~$400 I very briefly listened to the Athena and JBLs using the Best Buy sample music and I found the JBLs to have slightly fuller bass. This is probably important since I won't be using a sub. Also, I am currently using a vintage Kenwood KR 4010 receiver that I actually like the sound of. I am not sure exactly how much it pushes (somone told me they thought it was 40 watts/channel, but sounds equivalent to 100 watts). So if I can keep the Kenwood, I'd really like to. Will it be able to handle any of these speakers? Any thoughts and reccomendations are welcome, such as other speakers that match the Kenwood, or other recievers that would fit the speakers. Thanks!
