I have purchased a VSX-822-K receiver as a Christmas gift for my sister and I am looking for a speaker set to match with it for somewhere around $500. I am still in college so my budget is limited. She has a studio apartment 20'X20' with a 9' ceiling. This setup will be connected to a projector with Movies being the main use.
I have a set of Energy Take 5.1s for myself that I have been using for a couple of years that I enjoy, but I do recognize the limits. I have a month or so to look for deals so I would appreciate any recommendations you guys have.

Add some $ for speaker stands and wire. Should give her a nice starter system.
Thanks for all the help. I've done a lot of research and think that I pick up monitor70s for fronts, a CS2 for center, and a sub around $300 (probably a BIC).
Will the Pioneer VSX-822-K 5.1-Channel 3D Ready A/V Receiver be able to power the Monitor70 for movies in a 20X18 room?
Pioneer lists the VSX-822-K at 80 watts, link: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/AV-Receivers/Pioneer+Receivers/VSX-822-K.
5.1: Samsung PN60F5300 | Sony BDP-S1700 | Denon AVR-1713 | EMP E55Ti | EMP E56Ci | EMP E5Bi | Outlaw Ultra-X12
2.0: Oppo DV-980H | Apple Airport Express | Topping D30 | Parasound HCA-1500a | Chane A1.4
Just to give you guys an update. I have yet to hear the sound system myself, but have gotten some really positive feedback from my sister. The movies sound great and the speakers are realistic enough to make the dog go crazy... The monitors look great and really pull the system together.
