    Here's a general answer. If you're going the receiver route, buy one of the flagships and with the money left over, purchase a pair of upscale bookshelves plus one of the popular, oft mentioned and praised subwoofers. This is what I would do. You now own the basics in the upper end in consumer grade electronics. All else can be added on a as needed basis.

    Is this $5k for a video display also, or just audio components?

    if you need a display as well, here is my recommendation on how to split it up. I dont have a recommendation for a specific model unless otherwise noted.

    53" HD-RPTV ~ $2000
    Panasonic RP82 DVD player ~$225
    SVS PCi sub ~$550
    7.1 Reciever ~ $1000
    Axiom M22ti L/R speakers ~ $400
    Axiom VP150 Center Channel ~$350
    Axiom QS4 Surrounds ~$310

    That comes out to about $4800. Hundred bucks for cables and your right on target.

    Many other people will have many other opinions however.
