The Jamo S426 HCS3 system is selling for $240 right now at Amazon. That is quite a good deal.

I would recommend that you get that and spend $200 on the Polk PSW505 subwoofer.

IMO any subwoofer smaller than 12 inches is a joke. The smaller ones just thump and huff instead of reproducing bass.

Since music is significant part of you listening I definitely suggest the Jamo S606 set over the Klipsch. I've heard both.

I haven't heard the JBL.

I also think the Jamo S606 set is big step up from the Jamo S426 set. (Granted, the S426 set is a steal at it's price point, esp. when compared to the satellite sets.)

Among those three, I'd go with the Jamos followed by the JBLs with the Klipsch last.

Fry's Electronics is having the following sales:

TOWERS:
Polk Audio RTi12 $747 pair.
Infinity P363 $234 pair.
Sony SS-F6000 $117 pair.

Center Channel:
Polk Audio CSi5 $199.95

Bookshelf:
Polk Audio RTi4 $129.95 pair.
Polk Audio RTi6 $199.95 pair.

Subs:
Polk Audio PSW10 $99.99 each.

If my wife would let me, I would buy the RTi12's, but I already got the Monitor 70's so that will be practically impossible to convince her lol.

I've got the Jamo S426 towers being used as surrounds and they work excellent. I had them as fronts before and I didn't have any issues with them.
