denon avr-1912 purchased! Need help with speakers.

Hello All,

I just purchased the receiver Denon AVR-1912, and now my next step is to buy the speakers.

As a newbie in the high-end audio industry (or intermediate), I was looking for some suggestions for some good floorstanding speakers or any other speakers type that would go well in a living room and this specific receiver.

My budget for the speakers is about $500 to $750.

Below is a suggestion from a friend:

JBL ES250PBK 400-Watt High-Powered 12-Inch Subwoofer - Black by JBL

JBL ES25CBK 3-Way, Dual 5 1/4" Center Channel Speaker - Black by JBL

JBL ES90BK 4-Way, Dual 8-Inch Floorstanding Speaker - Black by JBL

Please let me know your thoughts.

Regards,

Dave

What are your audio goals?

This is essentially a two channel audio forum.  Stereophile? You purchased a home theater receiver. If you want a bunch of compromises you have started off on the right foot.  I you are seeking good sounding music you have started with a poor decision. What do you want? A home theater, or something that will do recorded music justice?

Well, that's not a nice

Well, that's not a nice welcome for a beginner and, indeed, some of us here have gone beyond two channel audio.  However, I cannot help  with these speakers as they are unknown to me and suggest the OP try here:  http://www.hometheater.com/category/ask-home-theater

Welcome!

I have  Denon receiver hooked up to Infinity speakers and an Outlaw subwoofer. I love listening to it! I do want to upgrade the speakers and am really interested in the Wharfdale Diamond 10.1. They are about $300, but have a rear facing port, so you need to think about placing them further away from the wall.

Other speakers I have been interested in include the Polk and PSB lines. You can get good prices for PSB at Crutchfield. It is best to give the speakers a listen. And for the record, JBL speakers do not have a great reputation in audiophile circles while the ones I mentioned are well respected by people who love good sound.

I hope this helps! Stick around here in the forum, and let us know what you decide!

Thanks

Thank you all for your feebacks and suggestions. I appreciate all the help.

I liked the suggestion about the PSB spekers and will reasearch them a little more.

Best regards,

Dave
