    JVC XV-501BK - DVD Player
    PIONEER CS-T2100-K - Front Speakers (125W)
    JBL N-CENTER - Center Channel (250W)

    The first thing I would do would be to timbre match the front three speakers. I would either either sell the Pioneer's and get matching JBL's, or sell the JBL center and get a matching Pioneer for the center. This would be the biggest single thing you could do to increase the sound of your system. Matching the fronts to the rears is not quite as important as matching the fronts to the center.

    All in all, I would probably sell the Pioneer's.

    My $.02!

    Yeah, I've considered the N28's, I'm still wondering if i should have up'd to the Studio series instead of the NorthRidge, are they much improvment would you say? but I'm seriously considering matching them up, i was thinking about it before hand, i should have mentioned it [​IMG]

    I'd agree to upgrade the front speakers first. Looking ahead from that, your next best bet would probably be to buy a new receiver. I'd take a look at some of the Onkyos and Denons in your price range, starting with the Onkyo 595 and Denon 1802. You could also take a look at Kenwood, Yamaha, or Marantz receivers as well.
