The Energy V5.1s are not available new at a reasonable price. You'd have to get them used in excellent condition for around $300 to make them a good value.
The Audioengine, Paradigm, and Aktimate are all powered monitors. Everything else requires some kind of receiver. So you have to decide which route you would like to go as far as powered monitors vs receiver and passive speakers.
