Summary: The speaker was and still is a great speaker, although I got so much sound from it, it blasted off my bookshelf and busted a speaker, I had to replace it but seeing how this speaker is rather popular I couldn't find it anymore, the replacement I found that beats this by far and is triple the size is Infinity Primus PC351 Three-way dual 5-1/4-Inch Speaker, its the best replacement I could find at this time, but wow that speaker is awesome and does beat this Sony one but...
Summary: I bought the Sony SS-CN5000 to be part of the apartment home theater I'm creating on a meat-and-potatoes budget. So for $70 shipped it sure fit my price qualifications. I'm very happy to report that it fit all of my listening qualifications as well! If this is all you read of my review, know this: "You will be happy with this product if you buy it.
Summary: This speaker system is ok on a "for the money" basis. If you are looking for an introduction to surround sound or are just on a tight budget, you should be satisfied with this speaker system. I bought it with the matching front and surround speakers to add surround sound to a bedroom and with a subwoofer, it works satisfactorily. Not really the most efficient speakers, I push them with a Sony 110 watt per channel receiver.
Summary: This is a great center channel speaker. I had a $200 sound bar center channel before and this speaker blows that away. Very crisp and clear sound. A lot of the sound from movies is from the center channel and this speaker does a good job of delivering it.
On a budget? Want it loud? Like big speakers? These are Funtastic!!

Summary: When I think Center channel I think "small design" when this goliath hit my doorstep I was literally like WTF is this. out of the box it came 2 6" drivers and a tweeter?? lmao DANG!! hooked up with Sony STR-DN1010 and matching Sony floor towers and bookshelves and a Vizio 55" LCD HDTV!! I woke up this morning and went to living room just to gawk at the monster I created in my house. Sitting in a room 14' x 18' x 9' For the price you can not beat this whole set.
Summary: I have had this center channel for over a month now. It is easily as good as Polk, Cerwin Vega, Klipsh and others that I have listened to. Just better priced. The sound stage is excellent and its dynamic range is very good. I'm powering it with a Denon 7.1 130w rms reciever and it handles it with ease. Would recommend to anyone. Great with movies, even better with music.
