I have a pair of Gallo Acoustics CL-3 speakers at one home that are quite incredible. They come very close to the sound quality of my Vandersteen 3A speakers at my other (larger) home, but only cost $1700 per pair.
A 5-channel system consisting of a pair of CL-3 speakers, a pair of CL-1 speakers, and a CL-C center speaker would cost you $2800. IMO this setup will outperform most $4000-5000 systems in every way!
You can order this system direct from the company in California, and get a 60-day ABSOLUTELY FREE trial, since they will fully refund and also pay shipping both ways if you return them.
I will bet, however, that they don't spend a lot on return shipping. I can't imagine anyone hearing them and not falling in love.
There is an excellent review article that talks about them in the July/August 2012 issue of the Absolute Sound, and also one at AVGuide.com
