Thanks for all of the replies. I'm checking out the NHT, Energy and HTDs online now.
Also, size is not necessarily a restriction. The bookshelves are nice, but if towers are better sound per dollar, I'll certainly look into them for the fronts.
Looking again at the Procinema, the only ones I've actually listened to, the 1000 seems like a decent set. However, my thinking is drifting into the bigger is better area regarding driver size. I'm not sure that's entirely the case though.
That being said, I'm thinking of stretching the budget to $1500. Basically, I don't want to be looking for/wishing for upgrades a year or two from now.
