Summary: These are the surrounds for my 5.0 system, and they are wonderful as surrounds. While large, to me they look elegant with the curve of the front. (Personally I think the RS-52 first series and the RP-250s are ugly with the angled grilles).
Summary: These speakers sound great and look great, my wife at first baulked at the idea of getting larger surround’s, but once she seen these on the floor stands she was impressed. These are pricey but the combination of great sound and great looks makes it worth the price.
Summary: Awesome speakers for a small to medium sized room. After doing the recearch I built a R ll series home theater... These 52's are Great for their size, delivering sound that is clean and crisp....
Summary: 1.) Packaging - Opening the box revealed great padding and sealing all the way around. Papers in plastic with feet/pads and good instruction manual if you needed it (wow the paper just feels better than most). 2.) Quality - I just love well made solid construction speakers.
Summary: I bought those last year to be part of my 7.1 system at a 14ft x 18ft mediaroom. They work great, fill the room completely! I'm using them with a 9.2 Yamaha AV receiver (AV-2010) and it's awesome to watch moves and play games.
Summary: The speakers are large but not without aesthetic appeal. Sound is crisp and clear, but you will have to make adjustments so that they do not overwhelm other speakers (mine are closer to the listening position than I would like, but I am limited by my living room's configuration).
