First of all, I know almost nothing about speaker/receiver selection; I am basically going by the "word" spread on the 'net on these units. They aren't baller HT units but are good for beginner/budget setups. Now, brand new the HT540 speakers (which I've heard good things about) range in the $200-$300USD range. Which is not bad. On top of that a local person has an SR606 unit for $330USD (used but in excellent condition + comes with warranty). My TV is erm, well nothing special; it's a 27" CRT style TV. Although at some point in time I would invest in an flat screen, right now all I care about is having amplified sound rather than using the TV speakers. Considering I'm spending ~$500 for a decent receiver+speaker+woofer setup, I don't see why I should spend 1/2 or even 2/3rd less on a used cheapo setup? Or even a simple bookshelf unit. If I were to spend on this it would last me quite some time, no? I also thought of the Onkyo HT6200 HTIB units but I've heard mixed reviews on these units. Thoughts?
