I'm somewhat of a "newbie" to all of this, and am looking for some guidance in deciding what speakers to buy. I got rid of my early 90's era Sony rack system (ugh), and bought a Yamaha RX-V663 receiver. I originally intended to buy a HTIB system to go with my new Samsung 67" DLP, until I could afford to do better later on (funds are low for now). A friend of mine suggested that I instead put that money (plus maybe a little more) towards a decent pair of floor standing speakers. Then, later on as I can afford it, continue to add on to the system (center, rears, etc). And eventually end up with a quality system that I can be proud of.
So that's where I am now......trying to decide on what fronts to buy. My budget is about $300-$400. Have done some reading on-line and think maybe the Polk Monitor 60/70 or the TSi400/500 are probably where I need to be looking, although some of those may be over my budget for now.
I would be greatful for any guidance on this from any of the more experienced forum members, or from anyone out there who has had any personal experience with any of these speakers. Also, is my Yamaha (95w p/ch) going to have enough power to adequately drive them?
Again.....thanks for any help or ideas that you can give me.
