I'd look at Jamo (pronounced yamo) speakers. You can get c607 front towers, c60 surrounds (there are different ones for the left and the right), and the c60 center for around 1100 from amazon.

Some other manufacturers with nice speaker packages you can get under a grand are Ascend Acoustics, HSU Research, Elemental Designs, and BIC Acoustech. Ascend is having a moving sale on a 5.0 package for 1K with free shipping that is almost ideal for your situation. Those are supposed to be terrific speakers, and they are very highly regarded by a lot of people here and everywhere else.

Are towers okay up front? Or do they all need to be bookshelf size of smaller?


You can get a nice package for about $750. 30 day in home trial too.

look at the av123 525 ELT package also. They have some great closeout deals, especially in cherry.


Energy has very nice RC setup if the rosenut color works for you.

Oh shoot, the Energy CR-100s surrounds seem to be gone from wwstereo website. They were $79 each.

This is what I would do if I had your budget...


Center Channel: Energy C-C100, $159, eBay...
http://cgi.ebay.com/Energy-C-C100-Ce...d=p3286.c0.m14


Mains: Energy C-300 Floor Standing Towers, $129 each, Audio Advisor...
http://www.audioadvisor.com/prodinfo...0%20%20%20SCHE


Surrounds: Energy C-R100's, $99 each, Audio Advisor...
http://www.audioadvisor.com/prodinfo.asp?number=ENCR100


That brings our totals too:

Center.........$160

Mains..........$260
Surrounds.....$200

Total...........$620


Or if you don't want wall mounted surrounds you could grab a pair of C-100's (for $120) or C-50's (for $85) from Audio Advisor... and this price difference would allow you to step your towers up to the C-500's for $400/pr... Towers $400, Center $160, Surrounds $120 for a total of $680... So many options... Good luck... and YES towers are going to make a huge difference, especially with music playback...

Thanks everyone for your suggestions! This was a great help!


Towers up front could be an option... Do towers provide a better overall spectrum of sound over bookshelf speakers?

Not really, as long as you have a good subwoofer.
