As menition, Bose is overpriced and won't sound as good as many systems at 1/2 the price. And the the Bose lifesytle system uses tiny cubes and an undersized base module/subwoofer and absolutely no tweeters. So it won't produce decent lows, will have almost no highs and even the midrange If you are will to spend the same dollar on an alternate system and willing to spend a little while on set up and correction, you can get a very decent system for 2000 dollars!
i would recommend a budget of 300 for the AV-Rec, 500 for the subwoofer and 1200 for 5 speakers. Not sure if you are in the US or not, so hard to recommend speakers...
