'd like my TV shows to sound decent, and occasionally listen to some music. I sit 5 meter (16 feet) from the screen and can put the speakers at about halfway. My tv is a 55EG910V, as far as I can tell it only has an optical output. I have no other sound devices/speakers/amp/dac.
Initially I was charmed by studio monitors like the JBL 305P with a Dayton sub, but I was told to stick to consumer gear.
The budget is max €500 (USD550), but certainly no need to spend it all.
(I’ve posted the same question on /r/audiophile/)
Many thanks in advance
