So I'm looking at buying a pair of good quality speakers and a receiver for around 500$.
Bookshelf speakers are what I'm looking for
The receiver should be 5.1.
I am only looking to buy a pair of speakers and upgrade with a subwoofer and 3 others later.
They would mainly be used for listening to music (Electronic dance music is the preferred genre, followed by alternative rock and classical). Watching movies and playing games are a secondary to music.
They will be used in a medium sized room. But I plan on upgrading to a living room in the near future.
I plan on buying used, so besides kijiji and ebay. Where else would be good? Or would there be new speakers for a reasonable price?
Bang for the buck always applies, if the differences between speakers are minute, yet they cost 300$ difference, I will take the cheaper ones. The opposite applies, I can go over the 500$ budget if there is a great deal.
