Thanks for all the input. i have been reading and reading for the past 2 - 3 days now about home audio, and all of your inputs have been helpful. Ohms, Watt ratio and what i need to driver my speakers, Distortion threw the channels and Signal to noise ratios. All these companies stating these specifications and why it isn't necessarily true. Interesting stuff.

So along with the Polk audio 50 floor standing for my set up,

I want this (because of the price and reviews) is the Polk Audio PSW10
100$ from new egg, with free shipping is cheaper than the refurbished ones sold direct from Polk.

My center will be the Polk Audio CS1
Price on Ebay from Polk Audio is 50$, along with there CS2 model sometimes. If i get lucky, ill get the CS2.

I haven't done my rear speaker research, but im sure that isn't as important (NOT SAYING ITS NOT) as the receivers, fronts, sub and center.

The receivers i have been looking at are:
Pioneer VSX-519v-k

Yamaha RX-V365

What do you think?

Edit: I have been looking at alot of receivers, and Sony's price is inviting, but more research said i should spend a little more money for a much bigger improvement in performance among other brands. Pioneer kept catching my eye along with the Yamaha models.
