Hey! Im kinda new music systems overall and have little knowledge. Im asking for help in what to look for and if im getting my moneys worth when searching for used systems.
Im looking in the range of 550-800 usd and have stumbled upon these setups:

Setup 1, 680 usd:
2 KEF iQ7se
1 KEF iQ6c
2 KEF iQ8ds

Setup 2, 680 usd:
2 Klipsch Reference RF-62 II
1 Klipsch RC-52 II
1 Klipsch R-10SW Subwoofer

Setup 3, 740 usd:
2 Yamaha NS-777
2 Yamaha NS-333
1 Yamaha NS-C444
Jamo SW 410E
Onkyo HT-R538

I already have an onkyo sr607 at home to pair these up with. These will mostly be used for music in a room that is 14.5 x 14.5 feet and high ceiling.

This is what I recommend. Little more then your stated budget.

Ascend Acoustics CMT340 - Mains

Ascend Acoustics CMT170 - Surrounds

Ascend Acoustics CMT340c - Center

Dayton Audio Sub-1200
Thanks soo much for recommendation! Yes a little over my budget, have too think about it.. Is the stuff i linked on par with your suggestion or is it a big difference in performance?

In my opinion the Ascend system will have better sound quality and performance.

Like may of us here you don't have to put the system together all at once (although its nice to do so).
Example if you just purchased a set of main speakers first you can end up with something like this


Now you will really benefit for music and run these for your L/R H/T channels. You can always add your surround speakers later and a subwoofer later just some examples
