Hello everyone. Long time lurker-first time poster. As it is the Christmas season, and since my parents required me to allow them to get me something...I decided on starting up a home theater project, instead of the lame PC 5.1 speaker system, and the jimmy-rigged prologic system (running on boombox speakers and a old sony receiver) that I have currently for a HT. I'm 20 just so you know and in college. So, here's what I'm thinking: Onkyo TX-DS595 - $365 from JandR.com (Christmas Present) - already ordered. Now, here's what I'm going to have to buy; unless I can get the parents to buy the sub too..doubtful though. Sony SB-SW40 subwoofer. Hopefully Best Buy will run it on sale sometime, or I'll just pick it up online...but from what I've read all over the place this is the best subwoofer in the bang for your buck margin; and I am of course looking to save bucks. Of course I'd love an SVS, but I don't have the money for it and I'm 95% sure this is the sub I'll be getting. Now; here's where things go up in the air. Surrounds: Axiom Audio Millennia M3Ti (Basically decided on) Center: Axiom Audio VP100 Now, I'm kind of lost on the fronts; and possibly even on the center channel. I'm on a budget of lets say under $1000 for the speakers...the Axioms come to $495 and for the hopes of a christmas gift we'll say the sub doesn't count. So I have about $500 to work with fronts. Of course my first thought would be to stick with the Axioms and get the M40Ti's for fronts, but I'm kind of torn as perhaps I could do better overall with spending just a wee bit less money. I've read rave reviwes about the M3Ti's and I do want to stick with them; but I'm wondering if possibly a more flexible center/fronts setup would be better as it seems most people don't find the VP100 to be that overwhelming, or the same great value (considering) as compared to the M3Ti's... Can anyone suggest me solid fronts, and perhaps even a center that could possibly do it for me. Keep in mind that the $1000 is the pinacle I'd spend; of course I'd like to spend less if possible, in that it doesn't hurt quality considerably. Thanks guys in advance; searching through endless posts has truly helped me, and made me really want to be sure what I'm buying is what is the best fit for me.
