    Looks like i'm going to go with the Athena setup.

    As-F2 $600
    AS-C $180
    AS-R1 $200
    P-400 $400

    The guy at Best Buy says i can get 10 to 15% of the total price. Anyway part of the deal is with a Yamaha 5590. Has anyone have any experience with this receiver? I'm not planning to upgrade in a long time... So what other receiver would you recommend instead of the Yamaha? $600 or less please.

    I'm going to mostly watch movies with this setup. I have a dedicated HT Room that's 18x12.

    I don't think the 'HTR's' come with pre-outs for all channels. If you ever plan on adding external amplification this would be a show-stopper.
    Check out the NAD T742 ($449) and the NAD T752 ($699) at www.saturdayaudio.com. Click on the 'DEALS' button. These are great mark-down prices on a couple of very nice receivers. Or check out the regular Yamaha 'RX-V' models that have pre-outs.

    I would second the recommendation to ensure pre-out capability.
