Good value domestic sakes?

I've enjoyed the chilled sakes I've tried at my local jazz club/Japanese restaurant (Yoshi's in San Francisco) and would like to explore more sakes at home. However, I've had a hard time justifying dropping $20 or more on a smallish bottle right now, which is what most of the Japanese sakes in my local Asian markets seem to cost.

I've also noticed a handful of locally-produced sakes from Takara, Ozeki, and a couple of other companies that are more at the price point I'm comfortable with right now ($7-10 for 1.5L). Are any of these US-made sakes decent enough to drink chilled? Or am I going to be knocking back lighter fluid if I don't heat them up?
