Not exactly $190, but at least it's something back.
Thanks to everyone who critiqued my setup! I ended up deciding to get the 520 over the 235, but decided to just go 2.1 with the Studio 580s until a decent deal came around on the 530. That day is today, as I just bought one on Newegg Flash for $180
(That deal is still live BTW)
Once that arrives, I'll be going 5.1 with the Pioneers for the surrounds. Not ideal, but very usable for now, probably until Christmas comes around.
Looking forward to hearing the output for movies/TV. I'm going to start doing more research regarding AVR configuration and tweaking. Thanks again to everyone who provided their input.
