Speaker suggestions for Yamaha RX-397

I will be putting this in our house, in a bookshelf application. Two rooms, each about 12 x 12.

The specs say: "50 watts x 2 (stereo) into 8 ohms (20-20,000 Hz) at 0.04% THD 4-ohm capability allows use with a wide range of speakers...front-panel and remote switching for two pairs of main speakers...binding post speaker connectors."

I cannot figure out what to do about speakers; I'd like pretty good ones, but hopefully under $150/pair. If I could pick up plenty good speakers at Circuit City, that would be great. I can't really figure out what to do here. All input greatly appreciated.

Hi, and welcome.

Taking your budget as being set, and looking at Circuit City, the Polk Audio M-10's should fit the bill.

Now, let the upward budget creep begin!

Should be able to find these Infinity Primus P162 online at your budget.
