"Pull the trigger -- this is what you need"5.0 starson by jamesensor40
Pros: PRICE, sound, looks, everything you need.
Cons: no subwoofer
Summary: I searched for a long time for a set of surround speakers to hook up to my system (Onkyo 606, sony blu-ray, LCD, turntable, ipod, CD, wii). I wanted a good set that would last and do movies and music equally well. I could not be more impressed with these fluance speakers -- I mean $200 for a set that sounds better than my friend's high end audio speakers is amazing. Plus, fluance has an ebay store, so you may be able to get them for cheaper in an auction (like i did!).
There is no subwoofer included, but I don't think that's a draw back at all. It produces fine bass for my purposes as I live in a small one bedroom condo. Could there be a bit more bass? sure, but I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything. Even my girlfriend commented on how amazing these sound and they won her over despite their large size. THANKS FOR THE RECOMMENDATION CNET, and thanks to fluance for making awesome audio available to those without thousands to spend!
If you'r elike me, you research products for months, looking at every product available and for thousands of reviews. These fluance speakers are the real deal. Just pull the trigger and do it. You will not be dissappointed.
