Gotcha. The reason I ask is because bookshelf speakers usually have a better value than tower speakers, and the main difference you get is volume. However, A lot of bookshelf speakers have a 6.5″ woofer or larger, and would probably have no issue filling that large of a space.

Something like the SVS Ultra, the new Elac Debut Reference, or Wharfedale Dentons would probably do just fine.

However, towers would definitely be fine. You could always order something from amazon and see if it works how you’d like it to.

If you’re going to get the budget Denon definitely do not pay $850. If this is just a 3.1 system get the S760H directly from Denon for $449.

Get the PB-1000 Pro. It is a better subwoofer all around than the SB-1000 Pro. Has more output which is exactly what you need in that large room.

Assuming you go with the PB-1000 Pro and S760 that gives you $1000 for LCR.

If there’s any way to bump that up…

ELAC DBR62 and DCR52 would be $1100.

Emotiva B1+ and C2+ = $800.

Polk R200 and R300 = $1200

Looking for advice on spending about $1000 on a speaker setup. I’ve been mostly listening to music on headphones, other than a really budget bookshelf speaker setup I had in college, so I don’t know too much. Based on the research I’ve done so far, I think I’m leaning toward ELAC – Debut Reference DBR62 speakers with a Yamaha A-S301BL amp. I’m also open to adding a sub, but I think I’ll do that later.

For reference, I mostly listen to rap, synth/indie pop, and indie (i.e. Mitski, Phoebe Bridgers) music. I’m looking for a speaker set up that will have a full soundstage and a solid low end. My headphones setup is a Sennheiser HD6XX with a JDS Element amp/dac, and I’m pretty happy with the level of quality I get out of them. Not sure how these speakers would compare to that.

Does this seem like a good setup for what I’m looking for, or should I be considering some other options?

Elac DBR62 + Loxjie A30 should be more than enough on a desk. Only needs some bare speaker wire (idk the length but dont be fooled by fancy cables).

Use your existing bookshelves for surround duty to save money. I assume you’re in the US but it you aren’t ignore everything below.

AVR – Denon X1600H $450 if you plan on doing a 5.1.2 or 5.2.2 if you want more such as a 5.1.4 then you’ll need a more expensive AVR such as X3600H or X3700H which run around $1000 to $1200.

Speakers – Klipsch RP-600M and RP-504C with coupon TV15 at cart for extra 15% off should be around $871 for LRC. The coupon is expired but if you contact them via the email or number that shows on the cart at checkout where you input the code they will give you a new coupon.

Other alternatives would be ELAC DBR62 $599 and DCR52 $399 or SVS Ultra Bookshelves $999 for the pair and Center $700

All of these speakers have towers for more money if you want to spend even more. Towers are not needed for Home Theater duty if you have a quality subwoofer. Quality subwoofers are expensive.

ATMOS in ceiling Micca M-8C $40 each

HSU VTF-2 MK5 buy two for $1183 shipped or VTF-3 MK5 buy two for $1741 or Rythmik FVX12 buy two for $1698.
