    Ok, I just got my Yamaha RX-V1300 off of ebay. Now, I don't have any speakers. I plan to get listen to SACDs and DVD-A with my Pioneer DV-56ea universal player.

I was thinking of picking up a crummy 5.1 system and slowly buying up ~150 and then a little later getting the Polk PSW 10 sub.

    From experience I would say that you would be better off spending $400 on a pair of speakers and forego a 5.1 setup for awhile. I've found that a nice 2.0 or 2.1 system is much more satisfying than a mediocre 5.1 system. AV123 is having a great special on their ELT powered towers...you get a 2 way bookshelf speaker w/ a stand that includes an 8in woofer and an amp for $399 for the pair.

    I just realized that I've been working a lot more than I thought. How about Infinity Primus? 140/160 or C25? I still like the polks too what about a RM6750 5.1 kit? or klipsh quintet IIs?

    Plus stands, but bar stools are cheap, or make some.
