Can someone help me pick out my first speakers?

I am not tech-savvy at all, and I'm really sorry if this is the wrong place to post it, but I'm looking for a pair of small decent home speakers for music in the $300 range.

I've heard people on reddit discourage people from buying Beats and Bose but that's the extent of my knowledge! Can someone recommend a pair of speakers to me? Or direct me to the correct subreddit if I'm not in the right place?

Thank you!


Congratulations! If you get a pair of these Paradigm PW300 on sale you will have an entire streaming system. You won’t need an amp because they are powered speakers. You can download an app to your phone and stream from many sources such as spotify, pandora, tidal, and even local files you already own.



If you want to connect a source like a CD player or a subwoofer you can get the PW600. Remember, you won't need amps or speaker cables:
