I'm 26 and I'm looking to get into hifi audio. I'm not new to audio as I have built my own ICE system and own high end headphones. I'm making the move to home audio. Currently, I do not own anything expect a HTIB and will start from the ground up. I'm not sure if I want a 2.1 or 5.1 system. I'm going to use this setup for audio, tv, xbox one, and HT.
Possible Speakers: Below $2,000
- B&W 683
- Paradigm Monitor series
- Monitor audio RX6, RX8
- Klipsch RF-82 ii
As for the speakers my brother owns the RF and the cousin owns the B&W. I'm not sure if I want to own the same pair as them...
Amp: Not sure which to get. I want to get the most out of the speakers and I don't want hard to drive speakers.
AVR: Since I am doing audio and video which receiver should I look at? When I listen to music I only want the L adn R to be working with the sub. And when I watch a movie I want all 5 channels working.
I'm going to start off with a 2.1 system and expand from there.
Any help is appreciated!
