Which surround sound system is better?

Jul 6, 2018
I have been looking at surround sound systems, but I am new to the surround sound system world and on a very limited budget (I just finished college). I found a Yamaha HTR 5940 and a Onkyo TX-SR702. I was wondering which system is better and then which speakers would work well with the receiver.

From sound those 2 are almost alike. I would grab the cheapest or look for certain feature, you want to use (DLNA, bluetooth, etc.).
You need actually to pay more attention to your speakers.

As for speakers, I would look at those Nubert Nubox line:
or anything in the same class.
