Because of your Overseas locations I am unsure what to suggest to you but there are plenty of speaker manufacturers and to be honest you would have to make that choice if you think they sound good to you that is all that matters.. but with your budget I would look into some bookshelves speakers..

You can get some very good speakers from a couple place but unsure if they ship to your location?? Try HSU and SVS the also make some good subwoofers.. I believe they are located in North America not sure where they ship too but they have some really nice speakers..

In audio, honestly you do get what you pay for (up to a point).

Also, if you don't mind, what do you think about an all-in-one HT system like the: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882120200

and how that would compare with the Z-680s (or their modern equivalent, the Z906s, which cost about $100 more than the Onkyo system)

Do you basically buy two speakers plus a receiver, and then buy more speakers later? The receiver will just accept whichever speakers for each (5.1 say) input you assign?

Would I be able to still connect it to my Sound Blaster ZXR for games and music, and then Blu-ray HDMI for movies?


Thanks all.
