After doing a lot of reading on this forum, I have finally decided for the 1014 receiver. Now I am trying to find decent speakers to go with it. I am considering the JBL SCS300.7...(mainly for the price and based on a few positive reviews.Also because of limited space in the apartment). I would appreciate any thoughts/suggestions.
If your budget is under $400, that shouldn't be too bad.
I picked up refurbished Micras for $200 on ebay. BestBuy sells the Micras on sale for $350.
I picked up a great set Infinity Tss750. Best for your price range! Sound great!
check out the Aperions at aperion.com. I just bought some from their showroom floor in portland. a 5 speaker setup can be bought for $520 the little speakers are awesome and the quality is superb. Check them out, i'm using these with a 1014 also
I was about to get the SCS300.7 until I've read some bad reviews about it and actually tested it at the store. I wasn't too impressed with it even though it is a 7.1 and couldn't feel the thickness and richness of the sound. Have you tried Klipsch (Quintet) or Onkyo SKS-HT240 (6.1). I got a chance to test Onkyo and I would say you gotta hear it to believe it. I'm planning on pairing the Onkyo with a Pioneer Elite 55TXi or 56TXi. The 59TXi was beyond my budget for now. But I'm getting the Pioneer Elite DVD Player (DV-59AVi).
