Good Budget Speakers For Listening to Music
« on: June 06, 2015, 06:21 pm »
I am about to move into a new apartment and I'm planning on taking that time to upgrade my current listening set up. What are some good speaker brands for someone on a budget?


My listening set up is definitely lacking in the speaker department. I've got a good Onkyo receiver and a nice turn table, but all of that seems kind of pointless because my speakers aren't great. I'm currently using some Panasonic home theater speakers. They sound okay but I can tell they don't have a lot of bass response, partially because they're so tiny. I'd be interested in a set of bookcase speakers or something a little bigger, though I'll be living in an apartment so I don't want something too loud.

Bose may offer the best speakers and sound systems but they are incredibly expensive. I am not sure what a good moderately priced brand would be maybe some of the other people on this forum will have an idea. However, since you have written this awhile back now, you undoubtedly already have your speakes. I hope you are enjoying them!

Consider buying wireless speakers that use Bluetooth, Airplay or WiFi. I like them for their great sound and also because they are portable. They also use the latest sound  technologies. You can get them online or buy them at your local store. For me I prefer the Polk Audio Hampden, a powerful Bluetooth stereo speaker set that looks as good as it sounds.

Wireless is a nice option. The price is coming down as well.

Check out brands like Dayton or Fluance. The Fluance SX6 specifically come to mind. They are about $130 for a pair of bookcase speakers and they sound phenomenal as well as looking really sleek. If you want a more in-depth look, I recommend checking out this guide .  It contains a lot of great speaker suggestions for various budgets. It also includes a lot of useful information on receivers, sub woofers, and how to set everything up.
