    for a 6.1 or 7.1 Capable Reciever.

    Lets say good sound quality but not the best. Any ideas. I'm trying to keep the cost under $500. Again this is just for the speakers.

    What are looking to buy? Receiver or speakers? Sorry, I'm not sure what you asking in your post.

    I think he's looking for speakers.

    You may be able to get the Energy Take 5.2 without the sub for $500. They pack a hell of a punch for small speakers. You can also pickup the additional speaker(s) for the rear when your budget allows.

    I second the ET 5.2 or even the older Take 5 (~$500 with a 8" sub) with an extra two speakers (~$100) ... But I'm leaning towards the 5.2 or a bigger sub, because with 7 sats and one small 8" sub the system will sound bright.

    With or without sub? Makes a big difference with a budget like that.

    You may want to look at Fluance. You can get their entry level 5.1 setup for $200, add a pair of their bipole surroudns for the back surrounds for $80, then get the JBL PB-10 from J&R for $200 w/ free shipping. This would put you in at $480 with a great setup.

    As for receiver, you may want to take a look at the Pioneer 811S. It's a great 6.1/7.1 receiver w/ DDEX, DTSES, DPLII, and NEO6 for around $300 online.
