    I got the same setup. You can buy the speakers in parts if you can't get everything at once and they are always on sale at Newegg. I had a Onkyo 5.1 box (amp sold with speakers) that i purchased but everything went bad. I got a refurbished Yamaha Amp and bought the replacement speakers when they went on sale.

    I got a pair of Polk OMW3 for side\rear surround for $99.

    Yup. I just found some Sony towers and center channel at a 🤬 shop. I negotiated it all for 100. Now I got 7.1 setup with the Yamahas. I want some better 🤬 but couldn't beat that deal.

    Check out the energy take classic or monoprice 5.1 system

    http://lifehacker.com/five-best-5-1-surround-speaker-sets-1499066014

    My first system I built through Craig's list and 🤬 /thrift stores ive since upgraded.

    Suggestion spend the money on the speakers rather than the receiver if you have a budget & get a Logitech harmony remote it'll be your best friend.
