I been out of the loop for about 10 years. I finally have time and room again so I dug out my old Sony ES VA333ES reciever and got it setup in a 14 x16 bedroom. I used to build speakers and had several sets around that I had spent a lot of time and money on but sold over the last 10 years for some extra paper in my wallet. My budget is pretty small right now at $300. I'd like the setup to be a 2.1 system, it will mostly be used for music and the occasional movie at night before bed. So far I'm leaning towards the Dayton SUB1200 at $150, this leaves me a $150 bookshelf speaker budget. New or used doesn't matter just excited to get my music space back.
