    Which Speaker system would you recommend?? Im torn between these 2

    I just purchased a home (my 1st) and moving in next week, so i'm looking for the final piece to my living room system.... i have an Onkyo SR-607 receiver (8ohms, 90watts per channel), and im looking to find a good speaker system to match under $400... here are my 2 options i've narrowed down to...

    Jamco 5.1 choose the Bundles tab next to "buy New" to see the components

    or

    Klipsch-HD-Theater-300

    what do you guys think?? other options maybe??


    Thanks in advance!

    My question with that, the Jamo speakers are 6ohm, and the receiver is 8 ohms... is that a huge deal???

    Nope! That onky should handle 6 ohms without any problems. And here's the specs to prove it.

    just curios, why the Jamo's? Nobody said why, just go with them.

    They do look nice and I like that little sub in cherry.

    Compare the specs'. The Jamo sub goes down to 30Hz while the klipsch is only 80watts and 40Hz. The Jamo speakers are better too.

    or this sub for the same price-
