I'm looking at getting an hk3480 and trying to choose some speakers to go with it. I was looking at either the Infinity Beta 20s or JBL e50s.

To me it seems the e50s are better speakers but the pricing is very similar and I must admit I don't understand a lot about home audio.

Another question is about a subwoofer. Would it be worth getting a sub with this setup? I listen primarily (but not exclusively) to rock.

Any comments much appreicated.

One of my bedroom systems is an HK3480 with infinity beta 20's on stands. For the price, you really can't do much better. The HK3480 is 120 wpc and that is high current power. The beta's have very good mid and upper detail. The treble is smooth and not overly bright. The beta system was reviewed in Sound and Vision mag a couple months ago and received a very good review.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the help,

In the end I went with the Beta 20s and a PS10 Sub. Should be all here on the 20th :-)
