A friend of mine is looking to build a small HT system on a very limited budget. He's already got a TV and DVD player, but needs speakers and a receiver. Since he's on a budget i was thinking of just reccommending the LR speakers and the receiver for now, and then having him upgrade the rest of the system around them in the future. Here's what I was thinking of for him: Receiver: Yamaha RX-V396 LR speakers: Paradigm Atoms I'm not sure about the Yamaha because it only puts out 50 watts, so it's good for now, as that's all the paradigms can handle, but for the future that will leave a lot to be desired, on the other hand, this will just cost $400 to do the whole system, so it has some of its own appeal in that regard. Any ideas? Would a complete system for around $400 do the trick for him, or would this short term bandaid that has the ability to be upgraded pretty easily be a better route to go?
