    I agree with the questions above.
    Without knowing the answers right off:
    Speaker packages:
    nOrh 4.0 package - $850
    Ascend Acoustics CBM-170 package - $750
    Other speakers to look at:
    Paradigm
    Def Tech
    Energy
    Swan Diva
    NHT

    My Paradigms (4 Titans and a CC-170) cost me $600. My Yamaha YST-SW500 cost $350 (though I'm considering a new sub).
    Can't beat the sound for the price. [​IMG]

    I'd take a look at the NHT SuperOne and the new NHT Super Audio series.

    Gotta 2nd the nOrh 4.0 rec. Stunningly good for the $$. The enclosure material and the externally mounted tweeter make a huge difference in clarity and imaging. Plus, you just can't beat 5 identical speakers for an immersive experience.
