Recommendations are welcome budget is about 1200 for front 3.
If looking for towers, then Emotiva T2 + C1 center = $1200 exactly. Less if you go with the allegedly "factory renewed" versions, or if you go with the T1 or TZero models.
Also, being in Dallas you should go check out HTD speakers, probably less than an hour's drive from where you are...google them.
~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)
