I currently just have some old Sony speakers from a cheapish mini system hooked up to it in the interim, but am looking for some real speakers... I'm happy to just start with a 2.0 setup and build on that but what is my best bet if I don't want to break the bank?
I'm considering a pair of Diamond 9.1s to start - anybody have suggestions on what I should expect to pay and a good source - I see Paul Money has them for $388 but only in black and when the Mrs saw the photos of Rosewood ones she's pretty keen on them so would help the WAF. ;-) Am I better off looking for second hand?
Any other speakers I should consider? Also what order should I look at buying if I ultimately want to go 5.1? Something like 2.0 -> 2.1 -> 3.1 -> 5.1?
