Putting together a 5.1 system for our first home theater. But don't know where to start.

Any recommendations for around $1,000?

We have looked at:
http://www.htd.com/Products/level-two-speakers
The towers, center, surround pair, and sub come to ~$1150
http://www.aperionaudio.com/speakers/intimus-family/intimus-4b-harmony-sa
For $1125

Are there any good brands to look at in this price range? Do people mix and match or just get all the same brand?

Our room is about 15x25. Would it be worth considering higher end systems, possibly 1500-2000? But we are sort of on a budget. Thanks.

I wouldn't even consider that Aperion 4B setup for anything larger then a dorm room... 4" monitors and an 8" sub for a 15x25 theater? Very bad choice.

The HTD level 2's would be a solid choice, minus the sub. Subs do not "match" like your front three speakers should. A pair of these JBL subs for the same price as that HTD would be a better choice

HTD would be my preference - with something like this
Cadence sub
