I'm thinking about getting an AV receiver & satellite speakers with subwoofer but before I blindly buy into any of these stuff, I need to know which is the most reliable brand for an av receiver and also for satellite speakers with subwoofer. By the way I have a tight budget! blush.gif

1. Which brand is the most reliable in terms of quality & worth the money? hmm.gif
2. My budget is around RM900 - RM1300 (AV receiver) & RM800 - RM1200 (satellite speakers with subwoofer) icon_rolleyes.gif
3. I'm going to put it into my master room. tongue.gif

Your thoughts please? icon_question.gif

A pair of cheap sats and sub at RM1200 max isn't going to get you anything much better than a decent soundbar to be quite honest. Suggest to get AVR + midrange bookshelves is a much better option. The well priced Sony SS-CS5 is an amazing pair at RM700. Yes I said Sony.

Your proposal seems interesting. I found a guy who seems to have a little similar problem as mine.

Here's the thread.

Low-end Towers & Bookshelves vs. Mid/Higher-end Satellites


I am building my first home theatre and have a maximum budget of $1000 CAD.

I realize I don't have a lot of options but research has led me to two possible outcomes.

I am debating between an entry level line of full speakers like the Sony Core Series

SSCS3 Tower - $185x2
SSCS8 - $120
SSCS5 Bookshelf (pair) - $225
SACS9 Sub - $235
TOTAL: $950 + Tax


OR

...a set of satellites with sub-woofer from a respected loudspeaker manufacturer like the Paradigm Cinema 100 CT

5 Satellites + 300W Subwoofer = $700 + Tax

Considerations:
Room is 17ft deep x 24ft wide (listening area is about 17x17ft, but it opens on one side to about 24ft deep). --will those little paradigms be able to even come close to filling that space?
Receiver is a Denon S710 (only 75W per channel) - will this be a problem driving the 6ohm Sonys?
Use will be 80:20 movies:music.

Any advise, further considerations, or additional recommendations are greatly appreciated.


Interesting eh? blink.gif

To be fair each brand has their own strength and weakness. Sometimes is not just the matter of size. Sound without characteric / tune is basically is just noise

Pioneer entry level stuff is subpar, always has been. They're known for their LX series of receivers, their VSX has always been failed products.

Keep the speakers, get a different receiver.
