Agree guys...on a budget, you have to make compromises and I would rather get better speaker/sub rather than spend more on an AVR with bass management.

I agree with Trans...I think the EMPtek e5bi is better, but not by a long shot. I haven't heard the SVS bookshelf, but from what I have heard from those who have, it would represent a bigger step up!

I think Ascend Acoutics has Canadian distrubtion and the above mentioned CMT340 is outstanding. Get a decent AV reciever, a pair of those and then upgrade later is my advice.
