Not sure what you read but would not put Bose in any top 3, 5 or even 10 in terms of speakers.
What brands are best will depend on your budget, your other equipment and most importantly your own personal preference in terms of sound. Hence the top 5 speakers for me will most likely be different to you.
Popular makes to look at would be Tannoy, Wharfedale, Monitor Audio and Kef to name but a few (could also have Dali and Q Accoustics). With a bigger budget makes like PMC would come into the frame as well.

What is your budget?

Are you purchasing in the UK or locally and if locally, where is that?
So you are looking for a 2.1 system including amp or 5.1 including RX?

Why have you decided between only Klipsch and B&W? Have you heard them and prefer them? If you have not heard them then listen to as many different options as you can with your budget. I would have thought you will struggle to get a full 5.1 set of B&W with only $1000 but then I do not know the local pricing for speakers with you.
Does the budget also have to stretch to the new receiver or do you have another budget for that? If so how much do you want to spend on the receiver?

Only you can decide what's best for you. There's no point asking "what's the best brand of speakers?" as you'll get loads of answers from people who will tell you either the best brand based on what they have, or the best brand based on what they'd like to have.

It's like asking someone what's the best colour for a car, or what's the best thing to eat for dinner.

All you will get is opinions.

Try and find out for yourself what is good, what you can afford, or what you want to save up for, by going out and finding some dealers, and by having a demo.
