Ugh, I hate surround sound "enthusiasts" - they just like having more and more speakers, that's all.

For a receiver, try Teac AG-790A AM/FM Stereo Receiver 200W RMS 4 RCA Inputs Black. less than $150 b4 tax, 200w. There are a lot of receivers to choose from.

The 2 speaker systems I recommended have been around forever and are used in recording studios.
Awesome, Thank you for your suggestions - I'll look into them.

I am actually an audio engineer, and I have lots of studio quality equipment. I just didn't want to spend 20 grand on near field monitors for my records; while I know they will sound amazing - I was hoping to keep the price down and pro-sumer audio is not my strong point as far as brands etc goes.
