    I mean, like, one of those teeny-weeny Class "D" amps with a DAC might be ideal, yes?
    They are Legion; here's but one example (I know nothing about this stuff).

    Do you want to go cheap or good on the loudspeakers?
    If (really) cheap, these aren't terrible. In fact, the treble's pretty darned good.

    I came within seconds of acquiring a used pair of those Pioneers at a townwide yard sale in nearby Cornish Flat, NH a year or two ago. They're likewise not bad little loudspeakers.

    I haven't heard the ELACs, but I have heard good things about them from people whose ears I trust.

    That's the best I can do, I'm afeared. :|

    If you can find a set cheap enough, the Monitor Audio Radius r90HDs are really good, and tiny. You’d need a sub though.
    The earlier versions are supposed to be almost as good, and the later versions are supposed to be better.
    Older AVR to power it, like Recoveryone said. The Monitors sound really great on my Yamaha RX-v665. :)
    Good luck on your hunt.

    I think they’d do good with a sub, better than they would on their own. But the ones you mentioned earlier are larger and probably have better low end response, so you may get away without one. The Monitors I mentioned pretty much won’t do anything under 75 hz.

    @jeremymarcinko are those good with music?

    I would say no, better for HT. (IMHO)

    The reference series speakers are decent for music and a pretty good speaker given the ultra budget application here.

    However my purchase was just refunded so these may not be available.

    It seems there may be an similar alternative the R51m on amazon for a few bucks more.
    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same.

    Thanks for the input, I have made my decision. I am filled with anticipation to see how this is gonna work out. I am also filled with consternation knowing that I will have to go to here mom's house to set it up. If I had the money I would send her raggedy azz to the spa for the day.

    Yeah, they are indeed. I wasn't going to mention that on the Polk Forums :p but I just ordered a pair. Couldn't resist at that price :/
  • afterburntafterburnt Posts: 4,723
    @halo I should have looked at them, I have heard good reviews here but the upgrade path would probably be a better receiver etc. This should get her through college and then I expect her to buy me a graduation present. Have you heard the S20, the more or less equivalent of the B6.2?
