Audio Systems/Need Speakers


I was given a Denon DRA-685, a 100 watt 2 channel but was told the speakers were blown.  Could you suggest what speakers for me to buy that would match this model?  Thanks.

It's a fine receiver with a 100 watts/channel audio output.  Speakers should be at least 4 ohm impedance.

Any speaker system of your choice will work fine with this receiver.  There are hundreds to choose from.  The ones you select should be within your budget and have sound quality that is pleasing for you to listen to.  

Best wishes.
