I have read alot of posts and other forums to get the best bang for my buck. I have come up with a few speaker packages to go with my HK325. If you have read my other posts, they will be going in a dorm and then in an apartement. I listen to mostly HT, and like to play it loud. (I will play them responsibly in the dorm though) I also work at best buy and get a nice discount there if you feel there are speakers there I should look in to. Here are the packages I have basically narrowed it down to: Energy take 5.2 HSU Ventriloquist VT-12 Wharfedale Diamonds 8.1 Paradigm Atoms or Titans Fluance SX-HTB I am not sure what sub I will be mating these with, I am open for suggestions on that too. Also I do prefer bookshevles or sats over floors, but Fluance seems like such a good deal. Also Happy Thanksgiving, I am going to go bed becuase I have to work at 5:30 in the morning and prepare for the mob of people outside at Best Buy. Please help me out if you have any suggestions at all, even if you recommened something that is not up there. I don't have a set budget really but I want to keep it at $500 or below if I could. That includes the 5.1 setup and subwoofer. THanks everybody and Happy Thanksgiving!!
