Excerpt: I expected more (because of the reviews I read here and other retail websites), but tempered that expectation with the reality this is a center and two surround speakers for around a hundred bucks. I had a Sony center and two surrounds from an economy set-up I bought 6-7 years ago for two hundred bucks and never really liked the way the center sounded like it was being sucked back through the wall behind them into a tin can. What do you expect for that price point.
Summary: Just about all of my speakers, the ones in this set, and my front speakers, are made by Sony. I use the Sony STRDH520 7.1 Channel 3D AV Receiver (Black) version of their audio receiver line and I have no complaints with the sound I receive. I set my rear speakers to 6.5 for the volume, and everything else just falls into place. Not only that, I loved the price that they cost at the time I bought them. Great deal all things considered.
Summary: I've always received compliments from friends and family on the surround sound setup on our home theater set-up. I had a rather large speaker wired to the center channel but during action movies I always had the remote in hand to increase the volume during dialoge and reduce it during action scenes. No longer necessary with this simple little system for a very modest price.
Summary: The speakers are small but sound good. I paired them with some Sony ssb1000's a Sony 10" subwoofer and its all hooked up to a new Sony receiver. There are three things I don't like. #1 is you can't remove the grilles #2 is that even though Sony states there is a 1" nano flex tweeter in the center speaker there is not. My ssb1000's each have one.
Summary: Perfect solution for surround. I have a high end receiver w a seperate sub and front speakers. Listened to it w this set up for years. Decided to expand my experience w these little gems. Fished upgraded Monster wire through walls and under floor to accommodate speaker positions. Excellent solution. Sound great, look great, great price. Would reccomend after owning for a month.
