I'm building out a 2.1 system for a weekend house. The room is terrible for HT, but it's what I have to work with. 3 story ceilings, lot's of glass, etc.
I almost pulled the trigger on a set of Polk Audio RTI A5's at Newegg for 40% off, but then they didn't have a pair to sell me because I waited too long I might wait to see if they get more in.
I've been looking at the Denon 1713 to drive whatever speakers I get, but that is open to debate as well...
