What is your listening preference for this system ( TV, HT, sports, music, other)? If you want something for HT, you will need a subwoofer (and probably 2 or more) for that size space.
I think the Arx A5's would be a GREAT start to a eventual 5.1 system. I also have the A1bs like JIm above and think they're great ( I have a much smaller space than you)
The other tower speakers listed above in Firebook's post are also excellent.......some will say to get bookshelf speakers( on stands) with subs for primary HT viewing, though.
The Harmon Karden 1700 should be an adequate 5.1 AVR for your needs ( it retails for $499 at Best Buy, so $199, even refurbished, sounds great).
Subwoofers.............many candidates, including Hsu, Rhythmik, Power Sound Audio (PSA), SVS, and they ALL have advocates on this forum........
As commsysman said above, decisions, decisions,,,,,,,
