My parents want a new speaker system, however I'm unsure what to recommend them considering the large amount of choices of brands and sets out there. They have been using the following for the past 25 years:
Technics SU-700 Integrated Stereo Amplifier
Technics SL-P120 Programmable Compact Disc Player
2 Wharfedale Delta 70 Speakers
My parents recently bought a new television as well and wish to have a system for both watching movies and listening to music and they listen to a wide variety of Blues about 90% of the time.
They do not have a set budget yet, but it'll probably be around 600-800 euros for a set of speakers and receiver. Apart form the television, the receiver is to be connected to their computer which acts as a source for both their music and movie needs.
While they would prefer a surround sound system, like a 5.1, the room is rather small and I don't know if that would be the best choice considering their budget. Although, considering the genre they listen to I'm wondering what would suffice, which may in the end well be a 5.1 system, I don't know at this point.
Below is a poorly drawn layout of the room, only to act as an indication:
Any recommendations based on the above would be wonderful.
Thanks for your time.
