High quality microsystem/speakers? Help?

    First off, I'm not familiar with any audio companies or products.

    I am looking for a small system, something with a few speakers and a receiver. I want to be able to play CD's, and I want an auxillary input so I can hook up an mp3 player. I don't want a full home theatre in a box setup..

    What manufacturers should I look at? I'm looking at boston acoustics and denon only because I have heard the names before.

    What do you think about something like this? http://usa.denon.com/ProductDetails/1912.asp

    Any ideas? Much appreciated.

    better: http://www.axiomaudio.com/m3ti_main.html

    you could probably go for a cheaper receiver and then go for the axiom speakers if your budget is tight around 800, look at denon, yamaha, onkyo, and pioneer stereo/multi-channel receivers

    i made 800 my budget goal since you listed that micro system.

    What about these? http://www.axiomaudio.com/m22ti_main.html

    Is it worth the extra 120 bucks or so? If it is I would swing for these, but I would end up buying a cheaper receiver. Is this a bad tradeoff?

    I won't really ever listen to radio or use satellite radio. 99.99% of the time I will be hooking up an mp3 player. What if I wanted to hook these up to my TV? Is it possible?

    Edit: I just spoke to an Axiom representative. I'm using these speakers in my apartment, it's a studio, the room they will be in is about 3000-4000 cubic feet. He said that bookshelf speakers would not be adequate for this room, he said I would need a sub and that I should look at floorstanding speakers. Now we are talking $1000... I'm not sure what to think.

    floorstanding is optimal for a large room but bookshelfs will get the job done

    and the rep is going to want to press for whatever is optimal as that is his job

    you can go cheaper on the receiver

    300 dollar receiver, 300-400 dollar pair of bookshelfs, if you want a cd player then in the future id suggest a 5 disc, spend 200-300 on one

    for ipod just use a phono to stereo RCA jack, it should work fine
