Hi everyone! Now that I got my Samsung KS8000, I'm considering getting a Yamaha RX-V483 along with some good but affordable speakers. I got two offers from the store at a comparable budget:
JBL Arena set:
JBL Arena 125C
JBL Arena 130 (pair)
JBL Arena 180 (pair)
Dali Spektor set:
Dali Spektor Vokal
Dali Spektor 1 (pair)
Dali Spektor 6 (pair)
Which set do you think is better? Thanks!

I think you need a bigger amp. Buy Yamaha used if you don't need Atmos. I still have Rxv1900, that is better. Most bluray players come with 2 Hdmi so 4k is possible..

Thanks, but I don't intend to be using a Blu-ray player - only streaming using WiFi from the computer. Do you still think I need a bigger amp in that case?
My initial intention was to get RX-V381, but they suggested RX-V483 because it's newer and superior.

Ok then you need streaming capability..
But no way that this models will be enough.
The amps you referred to is mainly for bookshelf speakers.

Wait those are small. If the older version has wifi you don't need the new one.
I can tell you that Yamaha loves Jbl..

Ok, soory for n00b question, but why do say these amps are small? You think they won't be able to power the speakers? Can you please be more specific?

The watts are too low and not continuous measured.
I meant that the jbl looked small. Not in a bad way. Check if they are easy to run, the response.
But yours speakers look small in size, but check their response, if they are easy to run. Ideally in a avr amp you need 80-100watts and also preferably continuous watts.
For movie maybe fine, movies aren't continuous you know.
Music can be continuous you know, and that is another question.
The thing the dealer said about you needing the newest model is nonsense...
You need the amp that has the things you need, as easy as that.
WiFi you need obviously you don't need Atmos, 4k I don't know.

                        Wifi is nice, but I find Bluetooth to be better.
You do know that you get superior quality via Hdmi, and a long Hdmi cable and a cheaper used Yamaha with stronger power could be an option.

Both are pretty decent speakers, though JBL are very well respected as HT speakers.  
For the Amp, You were given poor advise.  Since you'll be needing  wi-fi,though an  HDMI cable from PC to AVR is all you really need, you'll be better off going with a more modern receiver.  A 75-80 WPC receiver is more than enough unless you plan on listening to your system 4 blocks away.  Your AVR will consume about 20-25 under normal conditions, more if not using a sub which I don't recommend for any bookshelf speaker and especially so for HT use.
This AVR has  all the features you need + room eq, bass management, bluetooth.....

Thanks for the advice! So Denon AVR-X1300 would be superior to Yamaha RX-V483? Based on what I read, I was under the impression that Yamaha in general is always the best choice when it comes to home theaters and audio quality.
