I'm sure that amplifier would be fine for driving those speakers. If you want to save some money, Cambridge Audio has factory refurbished/factory warrantied CXA80 for $499 on Ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/Cambridge-Audio-CXA80-Amplifier-Black-Refurbished/253276587079

You don't need to spend $150 on speaker cables. For speaker wire, you just need 100% oxygen free copper. Something like this https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N4BIXDX/ . There is a chart on this page that will tell you what gauge to get based on the impedance rating of your speakers: http://www.roger-russell.com/wire/wire.htm . It's always OK to get a lower gauge/thicker speaker wire than you need.

You can get banana plugs on Amazon for adding as connectors to the end of the speaker wire. Something like this, although you don't need this many https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004CM4A58/

Receiver: Denon X3300 for $600 (huge sale, actually cheaper than getting a refurb model), it does everything you would likely want.

Subwoofer: Get a pretty good one for now, then spend big (sell this one or go dual) once you move. This one is $605 or this one for $550, unless you want to plug the ports to experience sealed ones in a while, the $550 one may be better actually. There is such a thing as too big for a room, not only will a huge monstrusity like the $1000 Rythmik FVX15 will actually sound bad in that small of a room (sound waves bouncing all other the place, that not even room treatment can really help, as the distance is too close) and the soundwaves will travel to neighbors much more easily.

So, let’s call that $1500 total just to account for miscellaneous stuff like speaker wire, banana plugs, subwoofer cable, any applicable tax for any component here, etc.

So, that leaves $2000 for a 2 towers and 1 center.

There are a lot of options (sorted by price, not that that's an indicator of quality):


  • RBH/Emptek has their clearance sale, you can spend a lot less (30% off) and get some awesome sounding speakers if you don’t mind minor cosmetic imperfections. Here are the towers and center, use the bundle coupon for $70 off, this will total $661 vs the ~$1150 new price tag (can’t buy new, out of stock, maybe discontinued). They get great reviews. I got the bookshkeves for my computer setup, they are great, here are pics of the cosmetic imperfections of mine.


  • HTD Level Three towers and center, if you get the more expensive finish, it will total around $1165. I have their old gen bookshkeves and center (no ribbon tweeter or waveguide, got them for cheap off Craigslist), they are fantastic.

  • JBL Studio 580’s (on sale) and 235C, these will be decently more music focused. Total cost ~$1180.


  • HSU CCB-8 3.0/LCR bookshelves, up to $1400 for the more expensive finish. If you want the HSU sub, you can save a bit by using their bundles (more expensive finish not available via this method.

  • Wharfedale Diamond 250 and 220C for $1600 (4 color options), may be more music focused.


  • KEF R100 bookshkeves (on sale) and R200C. Total cost ~$1800. If you don't mind white finish and refurb, they can be had for $1600, link to bookshelves and center.


  • KEF Q900 new (on sale) with refurb Q600C (if you want the walnut finish, it'll be $50 more, no charge for tower finish). total cost ~$1800-$1850


  • B&W 600 684 S2 and HTM61 S2 for $1900, these are heavily music focused, not that dynamic for movies.


  • KEF LS50 3.0/LCR bookshelves, the L/R will be refurb with a new center, they are available in a white/blue finish as well, for the same price, link to refurb white/blue L/R (don't come with a free pair of headphones like the black/orange ones). Total cost ~$2000.


    So, you got some debating to do.

    Keep in mind some of these may have tax added on based on where you live and which company I linked to (for instance, I live in Florida, so no tax if I get the HTD's from them as they are in Texas (if I was in Texas them there would be tax), the B&W's are only via BestBuy so there will be tax. That's why I accounted for it a bit at the start.

    If you need any help about optimally setting up your speakers and sub in terms of placement, let me know.
