I have:

denon avr-683

w/ a pair of speakers I got off ubid for $100 (Acoustic research I believe).

Then in a few months, when I had some more money, I picked up a klipsch center channel for $100.

Various different systems. Nothing I have heard had any great advantage over my Klipsch setup. Granted, these certainly weren't high end systems...

I can't wait until we actually have a properly setup auditorium at work...

$250 or so...not bad...

How much do standard Klipsch HT speakers run? If I got a sweet enough stereo setup, I think I could hold off on a full fledged HT for a while.

Do you want bookshelf or tower speakers? And for your price range, you can probably find some better speakers than klipsch.

Bookshelf. I don't have loads of space sadly...

The Klipsch KSB 1.1 Black speakers seem like they would be nice for the price. How much power does the reciever put out?

Also, the speakers only go down to 65 Hz. How much would a decent sub cost me?

80 watts @ 8ohms.

I don't have a sub, so I have no idea what they cost. But I can tell you if you are good with building stuff, you can make a kickass sub for sub-$100 (no pun intended).

So the 75-watt Klipsch speakers should be a good match for the reciever, right?

How does music sound without a sub? It seems like it wouldn't sound nearly as nice without any low end.

I personally don't like bass that much, which is why I don't use a sub. If you like bass a lot, then maybe you should look into a sub. You can always get the setup, and buy a sub if you feel you want the extra bass. That is the plus about a HT system, you can always add to it or change things that you don't like about it. For example, if you buy speakers and don't like the way they sound, return them and get new ones.

But if you are really concerned about getting everything you need for a set price, you might want to consider the klipsch computer speakers.

Yea, I can certainly see how this could get out of control fast!

One thing about home theatre setups is you really should only buy speakers once. Some of the features of the receivers can change (dolby digital, 5.1, 7.1, etc), but a nice set of speakers will last forever.
