Hello,
Some companies do test and operate components prior to shipping to make sure they measure and operate as they are designed to. Bryston, who makes legendary amplifiers, provides a set of measurements for every particular amplifier they ship out.
Cheers,
JJ

Re: Another new person to home theater, advice please.

Hi All,

Another question has come up. Does anyone have suggestions for inexpensive (~$30 for a pair) speaker stands? I need a pair for the mini-bookshelf surrounds (Energy C-50) that weigh close to 7 lbs each.

What should I look for when researching it? Are speaker stands for bookshelves universal?

There aren't any kids or pets. The stands would be on carpet. The stands do not have to hide the wires, but it would be a bonus.

Thanks,
H

Re: Another new person to home theater, advice please.

Hello,

Please disregard the last post about speaker stands. I just purchased some from StudioTech.com. I've never heard of the company, but hopefully they're alright. There's not a listing for them on BBB.org, but that also means there haven't been complaints. I think that most people tend to complain more than compliment.

Anyways, I bought 2 sets of their "SW-30 s". 30" speaker stands made of medium density fiberboard, some wire management, carpet spikes, and rubber spikes for hardwood floors. $20 for a pair shipped. The only caveat is that the cheap ones are silver and the black ones are regular price at $69. I could always paint them a different color if silver bothers my significant other.

I'll report back on the stands after I receive them.

Hello,

Many thanks to (in order of appearance) Jungle Jack, tonyvdb, selden, salvasol, lsiberian, and TonyG. Thanks to all of your input, advice, and time spent on replying, I've managed to put in the order for my new system. It's no $50,000 home theater system, but I think you've all helped me get something much better than a HTiB.

Onkyo SR707 - $477
Outlaw LFM-1 Plus - $467
5x Energy C-50 - $222.50
===========================================
Total Out the Door (incl. shipping, taxes, etc.) - $1166.50

Yes, kept it under my original $1200 budget!! Whew!

Now, I'm excited to get everything in. I'm sure I'll have more questions as I go along. But I wanted to give a quick thanks to everyone who chimed in.

Sincerely,
H
Lol, excellent man.
