You really need to audition speakers to find the sound you like, but I will suggest my favorites. $5k for speakers is a great budget, but you are buying 6 speakers including a sub - quite a few speakers. One of my favorite brands is Paradigm - I would highly suggest the Studio series (Studio 60 / CC-590 / Studio ADP-590 / Monitor Sub 12) but those are out of your budget. The Monitor series are great speakers and within your budget - even if you added 2 back speakers for 7.1

Paradigm Monitor 11 ($1600 / pr)

Paradigm Center 3 ($600)

Paradigm Surround 3 ($800/pr)

Paradigm Monitor Sub 12 ($1000)

My other suggestion is Polk speakers. I haven't heard the LSi series, but they are just in your budget and are probably very good - you may want to audition. The ones I have heard are the RTi series - amazing sound at a really great price - all 5 RTi speakers plus a sub would be half your budget. If you go with the RTi's, consider upgrading the center to the LSi - it is the single most important speaker in your HT.

For electronics you could just get a good AVR from Onkyo or Denon and a cheap BluRay player. But those high power amps will be embedded inside an AVR with video switching and surround decoding that will be out of date next time there is a new technology. Why not go with separates? Look at Marantz, Integra, or an Internet direct like Outlaw. Outlaw amps are made by ATI and are high quality for the price. A surround processor / preamp and a big 200wpc 7 channel amp - with enough left over for a world class BluRay player like the Oppo BDP-103.

Sorry to poke you but this is a thread where we share our system configurations with lots of photos.

Hope to see you come back when everything is set up and you can show off your system with dozens of pictures.

Wish Ya good luck, indeed! smile.gif
