Budget: Denon AVR-S530BT $160 refurbished 5.2 with HDCP 2.2 and HDMI 2.0B for 4k switching.

Recommended: Denon AVRX1400 $300 refurbished 7.2/5.2.2 with Audyssey MultEQ XT.


JBL Arena 130 Black 2-Way 7-Inch Bookshelf Loudspeakers match the Leviton/JBL center speaker.

Or get 3 other matching speakers and skip the free center speaker?

Don’t forget speaker wire and self adjusting wire strippers or basic.

They probably wouldn’t be as good if they did. But the new JBL Arena might be a decent passive alternative.
