All of the suggestions have been very good. I'll throw out one more, Home Theater Direct's Level 3 towers. I have the Level 3 LCR bookshelf's (paired with an Empire crossed at 80hz) and they sound very very good musically (HT is awesome). I listen to a ridiculously wide variety of music hard rock (godsmack, metallica, et al.) metal core (ABR, we came as Romans et al) Metal (LOG) skrillex, hair metal, Pearl Jam, even some Adele (which I must say sounds amazing). All have sounded very well.
