Not even close. Pioneer BS22's (~$100/pair on sale) or Sony Core CS5's ($75/pair on sale) with the matching center ($70-$100) and Monoprice 9723 or Dayton Sub-1200 ($100-$150) would run circles around this system.
and both of your options are well over the $369 of this set..

If you aren't willing to wait for the Pioneers or Sony's to go on sale again, fine, get this Jamo 5 speaker set and one of the subs that Orta recommended earlier: https://www.amazon.com/Jamo-Studi...07JJ5VKHL/

These Jamo's all have bigger woofers in each speaker vs any of the satellites included in the Klipsch set, so you can expect lower bass extension (60-80Hz depending on speaker vs the 110Hz that Klipsch specifies), and they also shouldn't be nearly as bright in the treble range like Klipsch's lower end horn tweeters tend to be. The Jamo's aren't quite as efficient/sensitive as the Klipsch's, but you shouldn't have any problem getting them more than loud enough for most rooms anyways.

As for a receiver, I'd probably go for a refurb Denon from A4L.

The Jamo deal you provided is what I ended up buying. Thanks and repped

That's not a system. That is a piecemeal setup that is also not that price right now. BS22 = 120x2 same for cs5s, dayton 1200 is 150. So, right now that runs 490 and is also pieced together. So, not exactly the same point I was trying to make.
It is a fair point that they don't happen to be on sale right now, but your definition of system is completely arbitrary. If someone is incapable of adding 3 items to an Amazon cart, they have little chance of terminating speaker wires or hooking up a receiver. What more, the subwoofer included with this system is 8" 50W RMS. The $99 Monoprice is a 12" 150W RMS, which blows it out of the water. I realize the Dayton fit your pricing narrative better, but you need not spend $150 to commandingly outclass this bundle.

Dianoda's $200 Jamo bundle above is also a much better alternative to this, and $70 less after a sub.

You and I both. But the average consumer including about 95% of my friends just don't care to piece something together. Money less an issue along these lines of small size and good sound are probably the def techs. I honestLy have never heard Jamos so maybe those indeed beat these. I was unaware they are one in the same now. They didn't used to be.

Infinity speakers are on sale right now too. https://slickdeals.net/f/13906229-infinity-reference-speakers-r162-bookshelf-160-pair-rc263-center-160-each-more-free-shipping?v=1&src=SiteSearch

Even if you just started with a pair of R152 bookshelf speakers and a R252 center, you'd be at $270 and have MUCH better quality and sounding speakers instead of these little plastic Klipsch things.
$100 for a Dayton or Monoprice sub is going to better than this 8" Klipsch.
And then buy some cheap rear satellites off ebay or c-list.

You'd then have a set up which you could use to actually enjoy listening to stereo music too. And it would have resale value later on if you decide to go in a different direction.
