Appreciate being new at audio. I was there once myself. Caught the audio bug in ~1970..... The speakers I mentioned will not be as finicky about where you place them and will still sound good. Plus listening distance and 'sweet spot' are not as critical. A good vintage amp (McIntosh, Marantz, Pioneer, Luxman are all very good) will give you the best flexibility to not only have fun listening now but will protect your investment. Same with buying vintage studio monitors that are and will remain in demand. My advice to you is to buy this kind of equipment the first few times (once you catch the audio bug you will understand) and learn in your own room with your own music and your own ears what works and what doesn't. All this fun and it does not have to put you in the poor house..... Please let me know if this is helpful. I am always available to provide an opinion on whichever vintage gear you are looking at - if you decide to go down this path. Whatever you choose to do, have fun and enjoy listening!
