View Full Version : Reciever choice for my new speakers
05-14-2005, 02:39 PM
I just got 2 JBL e90 speakers from amazon along with a JBL center. I need to decide on 2 rear channels still but my question is what kind of reciever should I be getting to power the speakers (mostly for movie viewing). Any input on some rear speakers that might match up would be great. FYI I want the reciever to be around $200 but I might go up to $300 if required...
<$100 for the rear speakers would be nice...

I'd search for the best price you can get on a base H/K - you might be able to get the next model up (235?) and still stay in your budget. Take a hard look at what differences are between them as you might be able to save the money and not really loose anything.
I came across some good deals on refurbished Denons, however their lower models seem to be a bit light in the bass. Not a major issue with a subwoofer, but you aren't there yet. The H/K is great in the bass.
Once you own a decent brand like a Yamaha, Denon or H/K, you won't go back to a Pioneer/Sony/etc. again.

You're obliged to get a subwoofer sooner or later. So I'd say just go with the Denon. Never go with Pioneer or Sony. If you do, you might as well return your JBL's for a nice set of state-of-the-art cardboard cone Bose tweeters.
Don't get me wrong. You'll find the Sonys and Pioneers are perfectly fine. Just make sure you never to listen to any of the other brands that *ahem* have long traditions specializing in audio equipment.

Do you guys think the E20 bookshelf speakers from the deals page would be too small to go with this setup? Opinions please!

OK I just got a Yamaha HTR-5790 at a good price... I hope it works out well.
