    I am just purchasing the denon 1920 and 1906 and need advice on which speaker manufacture and type to go for.

    Cost is an issue, so the cheaper the better, but i do whant to make use of the 7.1 from the 1906.

    Many thanks in advance

    TBH, I'd stick to 5.1 and buy the best speakers you can get for your budget. 5 gooduns will ALWAYS beat 7 averageuns. That doesn't quite work does it?

    Tell us about your room, it's size, your budget and any preferences for speaker/sub type or size. We'll then pull apart your ideas until you feel this big but you'll end up with better gear than based on dealer recommendations alone.

    Thanks Russell, I must stress that I am a novice so am am already intimdated.
    The room size is approx 5m by 4m and the budget has not been set, but I cannot justify spending more than a couple hundred quid

    Kef Kht 1005s are a good set of 5.1 budget speakers. I'd think about wiring the room ready for 7.1 that way at some point in the future you can get a half decent set of stereo speakers and move the front two compacts to the surround back position. Keeps your options open then.

    forget about 7.1, it is hard enough to get 5.1 right. The more surrounds there are donesnt make it any better it just eats your budget and in some rooms is too much, when two rears can fill that part of the room with good imaging
