I don't think you can do better than these speakers for the money. I own the Atoms, cc-190 and a pdr-8. They look great, are relatively compact, and the sound is tremendous. The only thing you might consider would be a different sub. The pdr-8 is perfectly adequate for my needs (some folks think it sounds better than the pdr-10), but from what you will read on this board there are probably numerous better sub options for power, depth and punch.
