I need two small speakers. Like the size of say Monitor Audio R90's. Looking for the best possible sound quality for $150 each. I know that's not a lot of money, but I have to save for the sub to go with them, so I can't go crazy. What satellites should I consider ?

along with the MA R90's look at the:

Def Tech Promonitor 800, 4.75" W x 8.38" H x 5" D

Energy V-Mini, Dimensions: 4.72" W x 7.48" H x 5.51" D

Energy CB-5, HxWxD, 8.7 x 5.7 x 7.9 inches

NHT Superzero 2.0, 9" Tall x 5" Wide x 5.5" Deep

NHT Absolute Zero, Dimensions - 9.75"H 5.625"W x 7.25"D

Paradigm Cinema 90 V.3, Height, Width, Depth 7-3/4 in x 4-5/8 in x 5-3/4 in

I've heard the Martin Logan MLT-2 are rebadged Cinema 90 speakers. Newegg quite often puts the 5.1 package on sale for $299. Sign up for the emails to be notified of a sale. Might be all you need since it includes a subwoofer.

If you can find any of these locally you should try to audtion yourself. You can listen to the Def Tech and CB-5 at Best Buy Magnolia stores. The others may be harder to find.
