    I'd check out the new Polk LSi series. I've never heard them personally, but the reviews have been great.

    For that price you could get into the best Axiom has to offer M80 towers, VP150 center and QS8's for rears. Read the reviews. I've listened to them and they are amazing!

    How about Def tech?
    front BP2004TL $1600 a pair
    center CLR2002 $500 each
    Rear BP2X $500 a pair

    you may not even need a sub. A number of posters convinced me I did not need one with this set up since the 2004's have 10" 250watt powered subbs in each! I don't have a sub and my house is shaking!!

    Check out the Totem Dreamcatcher. They sound great and are well built. If you could come to Canada, you could get a great deal.

    Frank,

    With that rig, I would suggest the VMPS (TowerIIs front and rear with a QSO626 center) That would be absolutely SICK! (old expression for GREAT!)

    Hard for me to imagine anything coming close value to performance wise in any category, except maybe looks (subjective)

    MAINS- VMPS Tower IIs
    Center - QSO626
    REARS -VMPS Tower IIs

    Rear Woofers run with phase reversed (antiphase) to provide push pull.

    Eight 12" woofs in this system will blast 22Hz all day long with that receiver.

    No Sub needed

    John

    Yes, Polk LSi-15 towers, LSi-C center, and LSi-FX switchable bipole/dipole. Should be under your price shipped and rock the house.
