Can get a used AVR... within the budget please suggest speakers i can manage the AVR..

Thatz a smart idea ... Always take the used route when you cannot get it with in your budget...

You can get an used AVR for 10 ~ 15K depending on the condition & the number of years old...

For speakers, you may consider Sonodyne Sonus, Polk TSx 100, PSB Alpha, Cambridge S30 all of them around 12 - 15K for BS....

Re: 5.1 budget bookshelf speakers needed

Hi,

I have been using a Marantz NR 1402 AVR + Boston Acoustics Soundware XS 5.1 system for almost a year now and it is good value for money. The AVR is better than any of its bulky competitors like Yamaha, Onkyo, Pioneer, Harmon Kardon, Denon available in the market. Firstly it is slim in size, looks neat and has all the latest features you need in an AVR. Music is tops...Marantz is known to deliver best music quality output and ofcourse the processors in it helps to create the actual cinema at home for movies and concerts.
Audyssey calibration for speakers to adjust the levels and quality in your room so you need not worry about doing the proper adjustments...it has Bass Treble controls to adjust, 9 band graphic equaliser to adjust for each speaker if you wish which frankly I have not seen available in any AVR available till date. The AVR has the latest dolby formats to play that special effects and crashing noise you want to hear.

I have used Bose Acoustic Mass AM5 and even the Jewel Cubes and I must say with 10 years experience, I have not heard better sounding speakers than the Bostons till date. Obviously the B&W CM series are the best and I will definitely own it one day.....the Bostons rock for music, concerts and movies...

If you are ready to stretch your budget to 50k odd you can purchase the AVR + Bostons on HiFi Mart or if you can get it cheaper elsewhere go ahead.....You will need to purchase good quality speaker cables.....AWG 18 Oxygen Free Cables would do for the speakers...you can buy the same from any wholesale market that sells wires...make sure its OFC.

The NR1402 is no more available but the NR 1504 is available with AirPlay and more features...same performance...Read the reviews for the speakers and avr on internet..see the videos uploaded on you tube.

Later as I planned to upgrade my 5.1 speakers, you too can upgrade to decent floor standers or bookshelves later...this AVR can handle it easily.

Hope this helps....my 5 friends have seen my setup and have got the same...all too happy with it. Owners pride and neighbour's jealousy
