Summary: The sound quality on these is poor, and you will find yourself immediately replacing them with something better - so don't waste your money. The center speaker sounds muddy and is not as good as the built-in speakers on my Toshiba TV - we don't even use the center speaker because it is so difficult to understand spoken dialog with it. After about a week I replaced it with a Polk (admittedly more expensive).
Summary: Its cheap for 3 speakers and it comes with wires but it sounds just ok. I tried out these speakers thinking they would match with the sony mb 150 speakers. It turns out that they sound very different. They are not nearly as clear as the sony 150's that feature the kevlar yellow cones. I also finally realized that the grills are not removable. In case you are looking to match these with other sony's in quality of sound this is not what you are looking for.
Summary: The center speaker packs more of a punch than I expected, yet is rather large and I had to be creative to find a way to mount it to the top of the TV. These speakers use the old style spring-clip connectors, but they still have very good clarity when using a gold plated connector (I just use the ones that came with my speaker wire).
Summary: I ordered these speakers to try to create a home theater system with existing equipment we already had. Unfortunately, the receiver I had didn't have the correct connections to use with these Sony speakers. I was very impressed with the fact that Amazon let me return them (at their expense) for a full refund since the item was not what I had expected.
Summary: I already had a pair of Hi-Fi speakers with excellent bass response for the front left and right as well as a pro-logic receiver. I had just not bothered to add the center and rear left and right speakers before. These Sony speakers have added a whole new world of listening/viewing pleasure to DVD's and even to CD's. They are very sturdily made a good materials and most importantly provide excellent response across the complete range of frequencies.
