Congrats. that can be a daunting task. It is easy to get bogged down in the numbers when buying new gear and that's coming from someone who tries to pay attention to this stuff.

If you have a place locally that has a variety of speakers and will let you listen before you buy that can save a few bucks. Just because speaker a has better specs than speaker B does not necessarily mean it will perform better in meaningful ways that you will be able to hear.
