Summary: As described and great product, yet missing screws which was a bit of a nuisance. The sound system works fantastic, the sub is wonderful. Everything came looking absolutely brand new. Unfortunately, as I stated, the product was missing the screws to stabilize the smaller speakers into their stands. Other than that, it is a fantastic product, the sound is incredible and well worth the buy.
Didn't hear them, couldn't get past the size of the sub.

Summary: ** First, I have to say I never listened this system. Why write a review of speakers I haven't heard? This is a "cut to the chase" for anyone interested in a small speaker package for a tight space. The sub is huge. It's gigantic. It's hugegantic and ginormous. Since I knew I'd have to return the system based on the size of the sub with no where to put it in the room I bought them for, I didn't hook the system up to actually hear it.
Summary: I ordered this item to replace some inferior speakers. I used this set to match my Sony STR-DH520 Receiver. For music, movies, and gaming, these speakers put out impressive amounts of sound. The sub-woofer is incredibly powerful. The set included everything necessary for nearly any set-up. I suggest this set primarily for wall-mounting, because the stands for the speakers are very short. The sub-woofer is relatively large, but proportionately powerful.
Summary: I was skeptical about these speakers, and only bought them because they were in a combo deal with a Sony receiver. They sound good, the big bass speaker is great! I am using these in a very small bedroom, in my context they sound very good. Their size is strange, they are small but long... the center is actually smaller then the rest.
Summary: I picked up this 5.1 speaker set along with a Sony receiver thanks to an awesome promotion that Amazon was running with the Sony STR-DH810. Although the receiver is a 7.1, I have a small living room and was looking for something to replace a pair of ancient bookshelf stereo speakers. The setup for this system was very easy as well, no problem at all. Design The Sony design on this speaker set is fantastic - they have a very elegant and modern look to them.
