If your priority is music (70%), please go for a stereo amp.

If you slightly up your budget you can get the one which has network features as well.

Hi there is a NAD AVR for sale, pl check the same. We hardly get such AVRs in the for the sale section. If you want new I suggest a Marantz anytime. After using Yamaha, Onkyo & Marantz I vouch for Marantz. Even the power figures are quoted conservatively and the sound signature is liked by many. Best of luck

If you need an AVR and your priority usage is MUSIC, then choose Marantz. Its more musical. But you need to choose proper speakers to pair with it

Thank you all of you for useful reply.. it is really helpful..
But i m very new in this field. I don't know if I m totally wrong then plz forgive me.

My priority is music (70%) with very impressive bass and movie 30%(5.1) surrounding sound system for 12x14 room.

I want to buy one budget AVR with average 5.1 (speakers+sub woofer). I dont have any blu ray system. So i want to play music or movie from my hard disc directly. Will it give me optimize output?

Is this the correct way to connect this components or i need to also buy something else.

I wanted to buy good HT(combo) but from online research I got that HT are waste of money.

So, I am planning this. is this correct approach?

Please advice me.

Thanks in advance

If your priority is 70% music, you can go for a stereo setup (2.0 or 2.1).
Please specify your budget as it will help us to suggest.
If you intend to play movies from hdd, you will require a media player/ Htpc.
No HT is a waste of money if you really want to watch it. On the other hand, sometimes everything seems to be waste of money. :D

if you build the system step by step, which I did, you will end up having a far better system than HT in box but you might end up spending 3-4 times more than your budget. lol.

My budget is arround 50-60k.

Yes, you are correct that it is never be in any budget. So, I want to setup as of now in this budget but later on I can enhance or add some more components. It will be wise choice if i now buy AVR so later on if movie will preference then I can add one extra blu ray player.

Is this good idea?

As you mentioned that your priority is 70% music, I would suggest you buy an integrated amp. AV receivers , above 1 lakh, do justice to music; but entry-level av receivers are good for movies, not good for music.

There can be no best speaker. If in budget of 60-75k wpuld say the boston acoustics a26 bookshelf+center+surround+asw650 subwoofer combo will work the best. Since ba and marantz pair well. Marantz can pair with most speaker brands as they are very soft and will sound sweet and musical on any set. Finally budget is what is the constraint and sometimes if we choose to build in stages then we end up with getting a kickass audivideo setup which later turns into a dedicated home theater dream which one starts craving for. Howvever music is a very important part and well said that for the price you pay for an avr for example: 30k you will get all the processing power, features, power, etc for 5channels or more. But incase of a stereo amplifier you will get sheer performance and will concentrate more on quality components for just two channels by getting a stereo amplifier for around 30k. If you need music as a main performer and movies for their lovely surround effects and thump and bang......go for marantz which is a balance between good music and movies. If you can have two setups.....one for movies and separate for stereo music that would be the best. This is only if you have the money and the space of keeping two setups....:rolleyes:
