I know crazyrob is a big proponent of the jamo 5.1 speaker set and I must admit, I heard it recently and was very impressed (only for a couple minutes, but...). The 5.1 speaker set is often on sale for about 400 dollars. That would leave you 600 for a decent receiver and a sub.
Alternatively, get a good reciever and get you L-C-R speakers, then add surround and sub in the next purchase...I would guess that the reciever is the one item that will "date" most quickly.
Set up #1: EMP e5Ti, e5Ci, and EMP e5Bi surrounds, Outlaw LFM1 Plus sub, SVS NSD SB12 sub, Marantz Slimeline 1504 AV receiver
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and EMPtek10i10i sub, Denon 1910 AV receiver
Set up #3: Philharmonics- BMR in a 2.0 system, music only, Yamaha RXV-363 AV receiver
