Gotta give a budget. What might be crazy to you might not be to someone else

Also, do you see this as mainly a HT system? Some music? Some gaming? What percentages to you imagine?

You get no help without a budget.

"I don't want to get too crazy on price" does not define a budget.

Can you have tower speakers?

How many speakers do you want? Should we assume 5?

$300 will get you one pair of Polk Monitor 60s from Newegg (promo code EMCJHKJ59) if you want towers. Then save towards buying additional speakers later on.

Or you could get the Energy Take Five Classic 5.1 set.

This.

I have these speakers and use the Bic F12 as the sub. It's a great budget system. I found the Pioneer towers to have a much less abrasive sound than the nearby Polk's and Klipsch's at Best Buy. I decided to take home the Polk pair, and the Pioneer tower pair to test them out. Again, I found the Polk's to be much harsher, and not nearly as smooth as the cheaper Pioneer speakers. I promptly returned the Polk's and picked up the matching center and bookshelf speakers for the Pioneer's.

The towers actually perform better for music than the F12 does. They have really tight bass, and can extend down to about 45Hz. You will not be dissapointed with these speakers. After a few months, they've broken in nicely, and produce a very full and smooth sound. I have no idea why these don't cost more. Especially since they have Andrew Jones' name on them.

I would go with 5 of these. Tell them you heard about them from AVS Forum and make an offer for 5 speakers. Maybe like $350 for the 5 of them.
