I feel compelled to chime in here, the Polk 75T for $220/each is a RIP. Newegg fairly regularly put the Polk Monitor 70's on sale for $159 or even $149/each in some instances and they're virtually the same speaker. The 75T's use the EXACT same drivers as the 70's in a slightly larger enclosure, and sound the same IMO, so there's no way I would pay $220/each for them. That said, I purchased a set of Monitor 70's for $320 shipped from Newegg last summer, and they're an excellent pair of speakers for the money. With proper amping and a quality signal, they really sing. Unfortunately now that the 30/40/50/60/70 series has been replaced by the 35/45/55/65/75, they're not nearly as good of a buy, and I think you can do better with your budget.
If I had the opportunity to go back in time and build my system again, I'd keep my Yamaha RX-V671 and Hsu VTF-2 MK4 (both GREAT pieces of equipment), but substitute Ascend Acoustics CMT-340SE mains, a CMT-340SE center, and CBM-170SE surrounds. The Ascend Acoustics are really excellent speakers, and I would recommend the same setup for your space. The only thing to consider is that space is obviously at a premium in your room, and as awesome as the Hsu VTF-2 MK4 is, it is admittedly a giant. You may not want to forego that much space for a sub, or shake literally every condo around you. (the VTF-2 is more than capable of shaking my entire 2,000 sq ft house without breaking a sweat) If I were you, I would invest in higher quality speakers and downsize slightly on the sub. For instance, a Hsu VTF-1 MK2 would be more than enough sub for that room and save you a little space. Just something to think about . . .
