I am pretty well settled on a Pioneer VSX D1014TX-K receiver. I am considering PSB's Image Series speakers (B25's) and a PSB Subsonic 6 subwoofer. I haven't actually perchased anything yet, so I decided to ask your opinions on the above combination. If you would like to suggest other combinations, I will gladly listen as long they are in the same price range. I cannot go much higher. Thanks!
I think the PSB's are a bit too laid back for the Pioneer. Check out the Monitor Audio Silver series and the Polk RTi line.

As I'm sure you already know, the 1014 has an auto-EQ feature, which should help level out the frequency response if those PSB's sound too "laid back". Or you can adjust the 5-band EQ to your liking...
I would look at the Yamaha 1500. Good match with a speaker like PSB and can be had for a bit over $500 from what I see on this forum at the beginning page. For new models I am amazed at how low the prices are on the 1500 and 2500.
The 750 has gotten good reviews and a listing in Sound & Vision as one of the years best, for what that's worth. My own experience is with the 2400 primarily and I really should not comment on any of their cheap models. The 1400/2400 and 1500/2500 sound pretty much the same so I feel ok commenting on them.
