For your needs, an Infinity Primus L/C/R setup should do the trick. most important considerations should be placement as a speakers performance is directly dependant on it's ability to radiate sound to the listening position. Squeezing towers into corners and against back walls is just plain Dumb where a smaller bookshelf with space around it will create a more accurate soudstage.

I thought it best for me to get the best towers I could afford and add whatever I needed later. You have a sub and surrounds already. An option is to go for the better towers now and save for a center. You can set your system to have the center channel split to the towers. This is something called a "phantom center channel". Many people operate this way. You will experience a total HT sound without a center and will really enjoy the better towers when listening to music.

Don't shoot me! Just an option you might not be aware of. Do a search on Phantom center channel for more opinions.

No prob, I never herd them before but when I was priceing a 5.0 I looked them up. I went with the 5.0 svs instead. There not towers.
