    Hi,
    I'm the newbie around here, but I'm currently looking through the many thousands of speakers out on the market. I've been hearing a lot of good things about the "Energy Loudspeakers Take 5."
    Now I hear they have a lot of bang for the buck, but as far as music playback, they aren't too impressive; being that I watch some DVD's with live performances (Dave Matthews Band, etc). However, my first priority is the home theater surround.
    Could anybody recomend some speaker set ups in the $500 range or so? I'm not really loyal to any brand in particular; I just want something that'll give me a great home theater experience for the money.

    How much is the JBL NSP1 package? That's supposed to be great too, and in some peoples' opinions, better than the Take 5 package.

    I also like the JBL NSP1 system for the $$$ but don't forget to audition Paradigms at your local dealer.

    Christopher,
    I have just the ticket you seek! Check out this dynamite performing, quality, like new setup at: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/uub/...ML/002141.html
    You cant go wrong with this very neutral sounding system and I believe it can not be beat for the price!
    Regards,
    Glenn

    The JBL NSP1 system is $300 at J&R with free shipping through August 10th I believe. They have free shipping on all JBL products through the 10th I think.
