newbie question: Floor standing speakers for $500?
 
I'm finally moving into a house and want to start building up the home theater system. I was wondering if anyone had an idea about a good choice for floor-standing speakers in the $500 per pair range. I'm thinking I would use these speakers for the front speakers in the home theater as well as the primary speakers for the stereo. I already have an AR powered subwoofer, so bass response isn't quite as crucial in the new speakers I guess. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Free shipping also, not too shabby! research around and listen-
but this might be a start.

I bought a pair of these recently at Fry's for $400 + tax and I'm pretty happy with them.

The Paradigm Phantom's are the lowest priced floorstanders I like at around $400 a pair.

Even better are the PSB Image 4T's available for around $550 a pair.

I second the 4T recommendation, an excellent speaker for the money. A couple of reviews to get you started:
