Hello, I am attending grad school in the US (I am from Europe) and after two months without my hometheater system I am simply going crazy . So I have decided to ship my receiver over here (Denon AVC-A10SE, equivalent to the Denon AVR-4800), but instead of shipping my speakers over here (cheep JBL speakers) I wanted to check out the possibility of purchasing speakers here (no TV, sold my RPTV before coming here - still deciding what to do in that area). I need a set of 5 speakers (no subwoofer - the neighbours would not like that ). The only real condition is that this has to be as cheap as possible, but at the same time comprimise as little on quality as possible (a tall order, I know). Space I have space for moderately sized speakers (bookshelf speakers and such) so we are not necessarily talking about small wall mounted speakers (but any suggestions are appreciated). Budget A maximum budget of 500 - 700 USD. As a student I can't really justify anything more than that. But if at all possible I would like to have this as cheap as possible (so don't limit replies to speakers costing 500 - 700). Specific brands No specific brands. Although I have to say that I do not want Bose. I know my budget does probably not allow it but Paradigm have always sounded good to me. But, no preference really (as a student price has to be an absolute nr. 1 concern). Any suggestions? Best regards, Eggert P.s. I live in Boston.
