A slightly unconventional solution, but for accuracy, adjustability and clean output these would slaughter most comparably priced bookshelves on the market:
Emotiva Stealth 6 ... 6” powered airmotiv™ studio monitors bi-amplified, 100 + 110 watts/channel X 5 = $2745 shipped.

Five Philharmonic Philharmonitors at $425 each.
Five Salk WOW1 at $600 each.
Five Ascend Sierra 1 at $425 ea (or add $150 each for NrT upgrade)
...and on and on and on.
What have you listened to and liked in the past?

How did you come up with those prices then?

Price_per_pair / 2 = single unit price
Since they are all custom built, they would happily sell 5 instead of just 2

Well guys, bad news: I went over budget. By 30 bucks!
Just ordered Ascend Sierra-2 for F/L/C and Sierra-1 for the rears. I'm guessing I will prefer the 2s and so will eventually spring for the upgrade to outfit the 1s as 2s. If for some reason, I don't care for the ribbon tweeter, I'll send the 2s back and get some more 1s. Really looking forward to setting these puppies up and breaking them in along with the new PB-2000.
I guess the only questions left are what to hang on the walls for surrounds for movies and what to consider for power (currently Denon 3805).
Thanks for the suggestions!

Thanks! I'm so "amped" for these speakers to show up, I'll be able to drive them by sticking the wires in my ears.
