This is a general question regarding how much a person should spend on speakers. I talked to a dealer, he said I should match a receiver with speakers twice the cost of the receiver. So a 2-to-1 price ratio. However, I've noticed some users spending closer to 1-to-1 or less, at which point other users have questioned that choice. What I'd like to know is whether or not that 2-to-1 ratio is arbitrary and just a means to upsell speakers, or if there's in fact a valid reason for matching speakers that are twice the cost of the receiver. Any answers from industry spokesmen would be appreciated if they can provide inside information.
