"Great deal - solid speakers."4.0 starson by fbomb
Pros: Front speakers are outstanding; great depth.
Cons: Centers and rears are serviceable - not great.
Summary: I do not think these can be beat for their price. I paid $240 plus $60 shipping on ebay and would do it again in a heartbeat. The front speakers are jaw dropping good for the price, but the center and rears are just serviceable. I added a Dayton sub-woof for $99 plus shipping from Parts Express and that adds to the experience tremendously. The great benefit of these speakers is that they are very good for home theater and also very good for music. They do indeed sound like speakers costing quite a bit more. If you do get into quite a bit more, however, you get quite a bit more. For a small apartment and a small budget, they are a no brainer. And I think they look terrific - better than the pictures.
