Help on Amp and speakers


Novice Member
Hi guys

I'm a complete novice when it comes to Home Audio; I am looking for an amp and two speakers for the loft room. I can't fit a surround sound unfortunately so I'm after a amp that would be good enough to power two large standing speakers. Problem is there's so much out there not sure what to go for ? Budget for everything is up to 800 unless recommended to spend more. Thanks


If you've not got the room for a 5.1 then I doubt very much that you have the room for a pair of large floorstanders either.

I could fit 5.1 but to fully maximise it shouldn't it be around the room? I could only have it facing front to the viewer.(by the tv)

My thoughts was to get two large standing speakers and an amp.....but not sure what to go for

In terms of source it would be

And maybe an ps4


Put too large a speaker in too small a room, or restricted space such as one with a vaulted ceiling and that could be really detrimental to good audio. Put a plan up of your room with dimensions to be more beneficial help.
