I'm looking for a new set of speakers to replace some woeful 1995-vintage Onkyos. For a budget of $1,000, I'm looking to get a complete 5.1 system (receiver excluded). First off, some preliminary info: - The speakers will be driven by a Pioneer 1014TX receiver. - The use of the speakers will be roughly 75% home theater/25% music. - The room these will go into is diagrammed at elepsis[.]org/temp/htRoom.png - For a variety of reasons, the front speakers must be floor-standing. The systems I've found so far that seem to meet the requirements are a JBL package from B&H Photo and Video (2xE90, EC35 center, E250P sub, 2xE10 surrounds) and Athena speakers from Audio Advisor (2xAS-F2, C1 center, 2xB2 surrounds and ~$250 left for a sub). I have three questions: (1) What other speakers should I consider? (2) Which, between the JBL and the Athena, would you recommend? (3) How would you spend $1,000 on speakers? Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!
