Hello guys, i recently got into home theater to look for a setup for my bedroom. I want to see if my selection of choices is correct in setting up a home theater for the first time. Any advice would help and if you have a better recommendation similar to my price point i would like to see! My budget is around 900$ before tax.

I’d say you’re off to a good start there. Of course, you’ll need three more speakers to have surround sound – a center channel and two for the rear surrounds. But that can be added later as budget permits.

Welcome!

A few questions.

  1. Assuming you already have the display?
  2. How large is the bedroom.
  3. Do you think you will be moving to a larger, more permanent space anytime soon?
I ask these questions because it might make more sense to forego the sub in favor of some modestly priced towers like these and add the sub later if/when you decide you're ready.

Thank you for replying! Yes i already have a 55in Sony A95k QD Oled tv. I haven’t measured but i think my bedroom is around 144 square feet, about an average bedroom. I think if i move it will probably be around the same. If i am considering the tower, would it replace my bookshelf speakers and the subwoofer?

If you think you’ll go to a 5.1 surround style in the near future, and have some storage space, you can buy a spool of speaker wire, to save a few bucks overall. There’s no real savings over a $10 stereo pair of cables. But if running 5 speakers of varying lengths, then buying a “bulk” wire might save a few bucks.

So it sounds like you have no plans for a substantially larger space. In that case I'd stick with the bookshelves and sub option. I think you're on the right track.

Do you think i can save a little on the AV receiver. I feel like thats too much for my budget currently. Something that is similar in quality but cheaper.

Unfortunately, no. That $300.00 price point is about as low as you'll find on the new market. If you're willing to go used you might be able to save a little. I found this in a quick search.
