I am a college student and wanted to start building a speaker system of a fairly good quality and I did not know where to start(i.e. what types of speakers and amplifiers) The price range I am looking at is around $800-1000 for front speakers and around $600 for a reciever. I wanted to get a pair of fronts first and then build from that point. Any suggestions would be helpful because I do not know many manufactuers. I have looked at the Paradigm monitor series and was pleased but was wondering what other brands are worth giving a look at.
