For that price range, you will be hard put to find anything better than some PSB speakers.
The PSB Image T6 is $1300 per pair, and are excellent speakers. Both Stereophile and The Absolute Sound chose them to be the speakers in their annual "Recommended Systems" articles, over every other speaker in that price class.
I had them for two years, and would still have them if I hadn't run into some other more expensive speakers that I fell in love with and had to have...lol.
It sounds like we have somewhat similar tastes; from Beethoven to Brubeck to Flatt and Scruggs to Ry Cooder...rofl.
A Image C4 center speaker is the best center speaker to use with them and is $300.
A pair of Image B4 speakers will round out the system for another $329.
A VERY good system for less than $2000.
Oh yes; a sub. I use a NHT B12D, which is excellent and runs $700. The Klipsch RW12D is also very good for around $400.
The bass from those speakers is pretty good, but for movies I guess you would want the sub with them; then you can add the other 3 speakers as you wish.
Oh; by the way; Saturday Audio sells new PSB speakers for about 20% off. They are new but have minor finish blemishes, which most people would hardly notice. They come with full new speaker warranty from PSB.
