Here is my deal. I want to build a complete HT system for $1000 or under. I think that I have settled on purchasing the Paradigm PDR12 for $440 that leaves my with ~$600 left to spend on the BookShelf speakers and the center. Here are the brands I'm interested in(or looked at): - Energy - JBL - Mission - Acoustic Research - Paradigm Am I looking at the right stuff? I have no idea what to get...and this will have to last me awhile. Right now I'm interested in the JBL studio series and the mission stuff. But It's really all guesswork based on reviews. Someone please help. Thanks again, Kevin I didn't state this initially. I am only looking at Left/Center/Right and a sub I will not be buying any rears right now. Ok, so I see from the advice that y'all don't really like the Paradigm sub. I am enjoying the comments please keep em coming b/c reviews can only go so far. Ok, more detail...this will be 85/15% usage (HT to music) Another aside...I have been reading peoples recommendations. Does no one like the JBL S-series?
