I'd agree if the Jamos are outside your budget and your budget is firm then that's that. But if your budget is flexible, then the Jamos are something to consider. Also--although I rarely ever recommend doing without a sub even for a short while--this might be one occasion to consider going 5.0 and saving up for a sub down the road, hopefully sooner rather than later, however.
After reading up a bit on the Jamo speakers and your needs, I'd say you can't go wrong with them, they should please you for a few years.
I agree with the above - why not wait until you have more money for a better sub? Probably the worst think you can do, IMO, is skimp on this - particularly if your interest is in achieving the same level of satisfaction of a theater. I made the mistake of buying an underpowered, unreliable sub a few years ago and it really turned me away from my man-cave for awhile. While not disagreeing with my esteemed peer in his statement above, if it takes a few months to afford something better for your space, then delay a sub purchase.
Be patient, young Padawan, it will pay off in the end.
