Hi, I'm relatively new to the forum and the HT experience and I'm looking for some opinions on what bookshelf speakers to use as mains with my Yamaha HTR-5550. Right now for my 12x20x8 dorm room I have the serviceable Sony SS-CR350 center and surround package, along with open-box JBL N26IIs as mains. After listening to the JBLs I realized I want more musical speakers, provided that they're under or near $300 a pair. I have no sub yet but will most likely wait and save up for a high quality one such as SVS. With better mains I figure my system will be 60% movies/40% music. Music will be 50% rock, 20% trip-hop/electronica, 20% jazz, 10% classical. Current candidates, in no particular order: Polk Rti38 ($250) or Rti28 ($200) Athena AS-B1 ($175) or AS-B2 ($260) Axiom M3ti ($275) or M2i ($255) JBL S26II ($150) Ascend CBM-170 ($328) Paradigm Atoms ($188) or Titans ($220) Home Theater Direct Level 3 Mains ($219) JBL S38II ($260), though the S38II may be too big for the room. Other speaker recommendations are also welcome and appreciated.
