Yeah, he is talking about a sound bar (front 3 speakers in one cabinet or all 5 speakers). I would not go that route. They are expensive and not as good as separate speakers. They play tricks on your ears to create a surround field. It works and is great for bedrooms, but is not true surround sound.
Go listen to as much as you can. speakers sound different to everyone and YOU need to pick them out. Not some guy who took measurements and is telling you what you need. You have a good budget and you can get some nice stuff. There is a lot out there in your range.
Find local dealers and see what they have. Take notes and bring your own music/movies (ones you really know well).
