    This looks like a good speaker package for my apartment. JBL seems to have a really good reputation. Anybody here have these speakers? Any thoughts? I'm looking for a complete 6.1 speaker package and have around $500 to spend on it.

    I'm a fan of the larger JBL speakers but not so much the small sats. I would recommend (as I always do) an Onkyo package. Heres one that will save you $200...

    You can check it out at Circuit City if you have one near you.

    That Onkyo package looks really nice. I don't think I've ever listened to Onkyo speakers. I'll have to check them out. The receiver I was thinking of getting is the Onkyo TX-SR501S. Thanks for the link.

    I have the SCS150's in my smallish living room. They sound excellent.

    I had an all in one Onkyo setup a while back and HATED it... brought it back within like 3 days of setting it up... they may sound better now, just my experience.
