I'm helping a friend decide on an entry level home theater system for $500 for the speakers/sub and have narrowed it down to this list. Which of these are the best of is there another I should consider (I'd ideally not like to hear more since I'm trying to narrow down the list, but if it is really worth mentioning then give it a go...
In no particular order:
Klipsch HD 500 5.1 High Definition Theater system
Pioneer SP-BS41-LR Speaker System
Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System
Definitive Technology ProCinema 600 5.1 Speaker System (this may be a stretch $ wise though so unless it is really that much better)
