Everyone would have their own opinion on what's best. What sounds good to me, might not sound good to you. Your best bet would be to pop in and out of stereo shops and listen to the actual components. From there you will get a better idea of what you like from making comparisons. Some brands of components are Diamond Audio, Boston Acoustics, Focal, Kicker, Polk Audio, DLS, MB Quarts, Rainbow, and Alpine.
