Summary: Bought three, that's right THREE of these for $144 each at Fry's. When you go to a Movie Theatre, you have three speakers behind the Screen for: Left Channel--Center Channel--Right Channel. And all three Speakers ARE IDENTICAL. The Center Channel Speaker is the same Model as the Left and Right. I wanted to replicate this in a Home Theatre set-up. Not a problem since I use a Video Projector for the Picture. Smoothe balanced sound all across the front is the result.
Summary: Have these attached to a Denon 1913 with Loft 20 Center channel and Bose 161 rear channels. I debated a great deal at Frys on how this setup would sound without a subwoofer. I'm glad to say that the system and particularly the ES80s sound phenominal. The ones inside Frys didn't sound as impressive (perhaps they weren't connected to a good receiver).
Summary: I got these for $199 on Amazon (obviously). What a deal! These things are amazing on their own. We are using them for the main left and rights in a 7.1 surround setup and everyone who hears them are blown away.
Great speakers, very surprise of the quality of sound!

Summary: Highly recommended, for a true sound and looks/design set the standards for even the most critical audiophile. Love the series. I have the total ES series speakers and they give movies and video concerts a new level of listening to live and recorded sounds and music.
Summary: I ordered two of these for little more than 199 each, I paid 227 for one...Not sure why it went up and then came down but whatever....As for the sound of these speakers, yes the are worth every penny !!! All the way around a good speaker...One of the 6.5 plays low sub bass and the other is a loud speaker...It sounds real good !!!!! If I can give it ten stars I would....
Summary: These speakers are fabulous. They have great base tone and produce crisp and clear sounds. This is an item that was offered at a reduced price because it had been returned to Amazon. It is in brand new A+ condition.
Summary: I was looking at the product in Amazon and decided to by due to overall 5 Star rating. As suggested by many reviewers in Amazon, I actually bought Pari of this from Frys for 144 each. I'm really impressed with the sound quality of these speakers as well as the very nice looking. I'm using this with Sony STR DH720 receiver. Base is really great even without sub-woofer. Musics is crystal clear.
