    I'm in the market for some *decent* speakers now, and I wanted to get some opinions on some speakers that are rather hard to find reviews for. Keep in mind that I'm cheap/poor and I'd rather not break my bank...yet, hence my budget choices.

    Current setup:
    Pioneer VSX-D711
    Wharfedale Modus Movies 5 (satellites...ICK)
    JBL PB-12 subwoofer

    Speaker choices:
    1) Rogers DB-101. I was offered 2 pairs of these for $360 Only complaint I can tell of is lack of bass but I think the sub should take care of that.
    2) B&W V202. $125/pair. Haven't been able to find any info on these.
    3) Fluance SX-HTB $259

    I was thinking of getting the Rogers for front/rear, and maybe the B&W to use 1 as a center and 1 as center-rear if I get a 6.1ch amp down the line. Would that be recommended, or should I save myself money and trouble and go with the Fluance set?

    Otherwise, are there any better recommendations for fairly affordable speakers for front/center/surround?

    --link to the user's manual for the B&Ws---that's about all I could find. Another suggestion--take a look at the Cambridge Soundworks Model Six. They're going for 150.00/pr right now with free shipping from
