Although, I won't list off a ton of different models, I'll throw out a few brands which all contain great speakers in each respective price range that I've listed below. Klipsch, Polk Audio, Infinity, JBL, Jamo, etc, etc...
Any pair of towers in the $400-$500 dollar a pair price range
$200-$300 dollars for a matching center channel
$200-$300 dollars for some bookshelf speakers for rears (These speakers are a flexible buy. Although all your speakers are important, you definitely don't have to go with super high-end speakers to handle your surround sound position and still get great sound. You could probably get away with a modest $100-$150 dollar pair of bookshelf speakers and still get great sound)
$500-$1000 for a mid-range to high mid-range receiver.
Any combination of normal size speakers, ie: towers, bookshelf and center will blow away any Bose package. Search the internet too for purchasing, beats the hell out of brick and mortar prices. Good luck. The above examples leave plenty of room to come in below $2,000, as well as some other examples people have already listed.
Quote:Of course, I got it modified with the TK-427, which cheeks it up another, maybe, 3 or 4 quads per channel.
