Pio FS52 or MartinLogan MLT-2 Pack?

Okay, so I was going to just buy a HTiB because of how cheap they are, but I know I probably won't be satisfied. So for receiver I've narrowed it down to the Denon E300 but for speakers I'm still not sure.

What i will purchase:
Denon AVR-E300 Should I add an extended warranty?

MartinLogan MLT-2 Package
or should I just buy these
Pioneer SP-FS52 for now and buy more speakers when i get the money?

That seems a little pricey to me for the MLT-2. They were extremely popular around here when they were selling for the <$250 range.

It could be better to buy a better brand/model of bookshelf instead of the Pioneers and get the sub. Once you add in the sub, the benefits of the extra bass the towers have will be negated. For instance, the EMP Tek E5Bi and a Dayton SUB 1200 or BIC F12 would run you less than the Martin Logans. Check out this review of the E5Bi: http://hometheaterreview.com/emp-tek...aker-reviewed/.

Then, after you add a center channel, if you decide you still want towers in the front, you could always pick up these once you save up: http://emptek.com/e55ti.php
