    Athena AS-F2's...
    JBL Northridge's...
    Ascend Acoustics...

    DIY

    Although, from the reviews I've read, both the Streems and the Fluance's are very nice for the money.

    DIY then buddy...

    More proof.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    Madisound has some very nice kits...I believe the Thors (Seas drivers in a T-line) are a little over a grand...

    Paradigm Studio 20's bookshleves guaranteed.

    They can be found here

    Reviews

    These will blow you away. I know audiophiles who are in love with these. They are far superior to the above mentioned.

    Re: best home theater system under $1000?

    ok guys. I've made my decision.

    Streem ht-808 ----- $579 shipped
    pioneer vsx1014 ---- $349 + shipping
    32" sony wega ------ $300 used

    I should be picking up the tv this weekend and ordering the pioneer and streem this weekend as well. Total comes out to $1200 give or take. And I will spend the rest of the money on a subwoofer or invest it into my car...

    Re: best home theater system under $1000?

    yes. sub is one of the most important part of home theater. As of right now Im not in a hurry to get a sub, but if I do, my options are velodyne, klipsch, polk audio, and hsu. As far as amps go, please name me a few so I can start researching. I've never purchased amps before so I dont really know where the prices range from and whats out there. But I would like to keep it under $300 if possible. Thanks!
