     I am currently looking at picking up either the Polk TSi400's or the Polk New Monitor 75T's. I have read countless reviews on both and wanted more opinions on how they stack up to one another. These will be the main speakers in a 20 deep by 15 wide room hooked up to a Pioneer VSX-522 reciever...

     Ok I'm looking to buy my first budget 5.1 system. It's for my bedroom (12x12) so I don't see much point in getting a 7.1 system. I'm on a tight budget, as in $300 and under. I know that's not much to work with but I have a list receivers I was thinking about, I'm talking about new receivers...
