The JBLs may be one of the best available, give it a spin to see if you like the sound signature.
Q Acoustics used to make a nice little pair of powered bookshelves, the BT3 if I recall correctly, but they were discontinued after a few years.
~ 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. :)
