Cinju, Question is how you enjoy music not the room size. If you like subtle and warm music,a pair of bookshelf is all that you need. If you dont want to miss the dynamics of a Dolby digital movie then you need active 12"sub woofer and at least 5 bookshelf speakers. If you just want some boom boom and ching chill ,go for jbl or sony HTIB for 30grands you can find great htib's which can shatter your windows panes, find one with bigger bass box. I hope you have seen those magazines, what Hifi and Avmax ?
