You'll know when you hear it. Also if you want to go on the cheap search for some threads on Dayton bookshelf speakers (and subs). They seem to be a budget favorite. Additionally the Andrew Jones series of budget Pioneer speakers (e.g. SP-BS22-LR and the larger BS41s) have gotten mad props from everywhere and have been cheap ($99-$120) lately on sites like Newegg and Amazon. With Best Buy price match you can get some good deals and maybe even listen in-store.
