Don’t compare prices across brands, speakers don’t work like that, some $300 ones sound better than $600 ones from other companies.

These speakers will do some things better than the others, but they are all on relatively equal footing.

There are powered speakers that don’t need a receiver, but you can’t be sure how loud they get, and the warranty on powered speskered usually isn’t as long, and if the amp dies, the whole speaker needs to be thrown out (or repaired).

If you want actual deep bass, you need a sub.

Bookshelf speakers for your budget.

Factory refurb Denon X1400, supports pretty much all modern codecs, and Dolby Vision and all that.

Emotiva B1 or HSU HB-1 MK2.

Dayton sub-1200, go dual if possible.
