    Friend is looking to start off with a decent pair of front speakers for HT and 2 channel music.

    Price range is about 500-600 bucks.

    My 2 contenders:

    JBL ND310
    Klipsch RF3-II

    I am also recommending he pickup a Pionner 811S receiver... He is trying to rebuild his home theater with a modest budget

    Any other speaker recommendations? Any better receiver for 300 bucks?

    Why not get the S series? For that amount of money you can bring home a couple of S312's which would sound very nice......What center does he have? Important to match the three in the front.

    Try a pair of Axiom Mt22's, Paradigm Studio 20's, or Swan Diva 2.1's. Denon 1802 is a good option for a touch over $300.

    Stephen,

    The S312 look like a great speaker... do you happen to know the best price online?

    Eric,

    My friend is shooting for a pair of floorstanding speakers, sorry I did not make that clear...

    JandR.com usually has great prices w/free shipping on JBL. Their stock fluctuates a lot though due to the great offer.
    I would also recommend the S312 if your friend has the space.
