Looking for around 150 speakers - Page 2

post #16 of 38
That Denon 1513 I linked to would be great if you have room for a full-sized receiver. My neighbor has one. It's a good receiver, and should you decide later you would like to build out to a full surround system, all you would need would be additional speakers.

Those Pioneers are one of the best deals in <$100 passive speakers.

Yea the Denon amp looks like a nice long term investment. Ill it buy now and save up money for the speakers later (budget complication)

I ditched the idea of buying the Denon Receiver would the Lepai amp be enough to power the Pioneers

Depends on how loud you want. The Lepai will do a good job of driving the speakers to fairly loud volumes for sitting at a computer, but it's not going to fill a room with very loud volume. It's definitely worth $25 smily_headphones1.gif

it'll actually be for my room and i would prefer to use the speakers at their full potential or close to it. Any recommendations?

Yeah. The receiver I mentioned. For $100, you won't do better. For $25, you won't do better than the Lepai. For in between in price? Maybe there's something in between on output. Not sure. What I'm familiar with are t-amp models which have better build quality, better SQ, and maybe only a little more volume than the Lepai for around $75 or so.

Definitely not better off then getting the Pioneers, receiver, and adding the sub later on when you can afford it smily_headphones1.gif

Pioneer SP-BS22-LR...designed by Andrew Jones. Best bang for buck passive desktop speakers in  their price range, imho...You really do get quite a lot for your money. Assuming you have some sort of amplification, it's hard to beat these guys. I'm listening to them right now through an old Denon receiver I had lying around, connected to an emotiva xda-2 dac, running flac files from my computer on media monkey at work. I find myself pausing from time to time thinking "damn, these speakers sound really good..."

receiver is my best bargain right? I would assume this is better to pair with the Pioneers than the Lepai considering i Want to listen to my music LOUD. This is a investment for the longterm and will most likely be my first and last audio setup, i plan on taking it out of the country. Will this be the cheapest posible setup?

The Denon has a lot more power. It will run the Pioneers much louder than the Lepai, and definitely worth the extra money for that and the bass management capabilities that it has for integrating a sub.

so would the Denon also be able to power a passive sub or should I stick with the active Dayton?

No. There are no good passive subs for home audio until you get up to much more expensive products, and then they are rare, and mostly where people build their own. Well, except for home theater in box or multimedia computer speakers (very cheap stuff). That's because subs need a good bit of power AND have to do well with the bass frequencies. So all AVRs are designed to be use with a sub with its own amplifier built in.
