I was checking out some HT stuff and came across these.

They have em for $85 shipped a pair on woot.com right now. Do you really think they are flat from 20 khz all the way down to 55 hz?

I don't think so.

prolly not, but from the energy speakers I've heard, they will sound pretty good. I would think they're worth the price there.

How much are you wanting to spend?

Honestly, I don't have any free cash to spend right now, but I will be upgrading in the future. Ideally, I'd like to stay under $500 for a receiver, and 5 bookshelves. I've already got a 15" Treo SSi on 200 watts tuned to 17 hz, so I'm fine on the low-end.

Is Sherwood a good brand or should I stick with Onkyo and Sony?

if you can find a pair of Harmon Kardon HKB6 bookshelves, then get them. they are a little big for bookshelves but sound really good. i have a pair that i am using as rear surrounds right now, but i used them as mains for a short period of time and they did pretty good.

The Energy are great speakers, its a division of Klipsch. They just arent as mainstream as other brands. 85 a pair is a steal.

definately stick with sony if you want a receiver with 50 different useless surround modes

if you want good sound get denon or onkyo

paradigm+denon=sounds great together
