Pros: Look good, sounds better.
Cons: While they look good from the lazyboy, a closer look reveals the vinyl covering. Just don't scratch it or nick it and noone will notice.
Summary: I have the updated plus speakers. I think I finally have them broken in. They do sound good. We re-watched a movie that we had watched on the old set of Polk-Audios and could hear small noises that we had not before with the Fluance. I thought it was pretty cool.
I tried a few movies and CD's without the sub and they sounded good, but a sub really does help with the over all effect.
About shipping, these speakers were packed great. When we were taking them out of the box, we opened the first box and discovered another, then lots of styrofoam to pad. Like one of those hard to open gag gifts from a friend.
Anyways, I can't wait to show them off to my friends and family.Updated
I've had these speakers for almost a year and the sound is still crisp and clear. I added a sub and it complimants the 5 speakers very nicely.
They've pumped out the tunes for partying and made my home theater experience so much better.
What a great set of speakers to compliment my new 52 inch LCD HDTV. Now I have great sound and picture.
Popcorn's ready, time for an action movie!Updated
Someone emailed me to ask if speaker wire was included with these speakers. It is not included.
I got a good deal on e*bay on some good 12 gauge speaker cable and banana clips.
