Best speakers for about $2000 a pair
Grant Fidelity RBS-1 or PBN Mini Monitor. I would lean towards the PBN but both are exceedingly good for right at $2000. 
HSU ULS-15 Sub
I owned a DD12 before I had the F112. The DD is a great sub but the JL took every aspect of its(DD) performance to the next level. I did like the SMS of the Velo but that couldnt off-set the noticable performance increase. Cant go wrong either way... 
Von Schweikert VR-4sr MKII or Wilson Sophia
forget it. 
Von Schweikert VR-4sr MKII or Wilson Sophia
Yeah no kidding. thats why I was asking for opinions on the differences between the VSA and Wilsons, so it would help me choose the speakers. Changing the amps is not an option. I stated I was using Nuforce equipment so that vairable was taken out... 
Von Schweikert VR-4sr MKII or Wilson Sophia
what would be a warmer speaker in your opinion? 
Its going to be a very intersting combo using the new Nuforce loudspeakrs in combination with with a pair of 9 or 9SE's. Anyone heard the speakers yet? 
Why Von Schweikert VR-1 too lower price ?
Tvad is 100% correct. Take advantage while you can. VSA makes some of the best loudspeakers available to the public. the whole "chinese speaker" excuse is so old and unjustified that bringing it up any more is embarrassing to the audio community.

Assuming you need 5 speakers for surround-sound, subwoofer and receiver I would say go with (4) Paradigm Atoms, (1) Paradigm CC-170 center channel, a Paradigm PDR-10 subwoofer and a Yamaha RXV-1400 receiver. This is a very good quality, basic syst... 
which woofer do you prefer
Thanks for your responses!! I would certainly like to hear the Vandersteen, seems as though its owners are always very happy. The Tumult is very interesting and I have thought about making a custom project out of it. Kgvetern....did you make a sub... 
Best DVD Player $1000-$2000
I think my EAD is outstanding 
Best 2-CH AMP at $2500
I second the Plinius nomination. 
Best used 5 channel amp for under $3k?
EAD, Sunfire Signature, Aragon, or Cinepro. EAD being the best sounding of the bunch. 
Plinius 8200 MkII and Paradigm Studio 100 v2?
Plinius with ANYTHING is a good match. The 8200 has a very good power supply and should be able to drive Studio 100's very well. 
Good Subwoofer Amp
Check into Crown or QSC pro amps. They will drive any sub all night long and beg for more. Some models do have fans but they are generally very quiet. Good luck! 
Tubes with Paradigm Reference 100??
I used a CJ MV-60 and it played PLENTY loud for my tastes. Sounded fabulous as well
