I would get speakers I know I could build a system around.

The matching center for those Mordaunt Short bookshelf is expensive. Are you prepared to pay up to $400 for one?

I think I might get two Cambridge S50 towers for $130 each. Yes its $10 over your $250 budget but you wont have to buy stands.

Then buy the matching center next

Then add some s30's to round out your system.

You've been given a ton of good options, you just need to make a decision and don't second guess it because if you keep having buyer's remorse you'll never be happy. I can see you're the type that's gonna agonize over whatever you buy.

I would stop worrying and buy a pair.
They are good speakers-get them and start enjoying them.
