Summary: I got this speaker set for a gift from my wife and I love it. She got them at a great price (about $130). These speakers are well suited to my AV Receiver (Dolby 5.1, 7.1), which has 100 Watts/Chanel output for Dolby 5.1 (L, C, R, SL, SR) and a sub-woofer line level output. With my Receiver, these more than fill the 30'x20' living room with more sound than is needed.
Summary: When I started looking for the right HT Speaker my optiones were between the Yamaha NS-SP1800BL 5.1-Channel Home Theater Speaker System and the Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System, I decided for the Yamaha HT because It's cheaper, my point was "OK I'm going to settle with these one and then I'll start building my own set piece by piece from different brands, there's no point in spending more money on the Energy HTS".
Summary: I purchased a new Yamaha small home theatre reeivers for my bedroom and connected it to a set of Sony 5:1 speakers from a previous system. The sound was awful. No highs, no lows just bad. So I decided to purchase this Yamaha 5.1 speakers system that I assumed were designed to work with my new Yamaha receiver. The sound is incredible. I have a very expensive Home Theatre with Denon receiver and Definitive Technology 7.1 speakers.
Summary: WOW!!! What a bargan!!!!! These speakers are not 'cheap' like the price would have you conclude!!! Big sound can boom from this bad-boy set!! We are a BIG gamer family, and when we watch movies like Underworld or the Jurassic Park series, it's like we are back in the THX movie theater! Before I purchased this set for my husband for x-mas in '12, this system was under $120 with FREE shipping. So I had my doubts. So, I read the over 100 reviews first.
Summary: I'm no audiophile (as proof by the fact i didn't know i would need a receiver when i bought these) but I do have ears and enjoy a good action movie. Been using these for a week and they sound great. Seen them as low as $99.99.
Summary: This speaker set is amazing! i read the reviews before i decided to purchase it, and i thought it was going to be JUST ok for the price, well, when it arrived, i plugged it in to my 5.1 Sony reciever and i just WOWED... the Bass Sound is Deep and POWERFUL, so powerful that my windows were vibrating, and NOT loosing sound quality, and the satellite speakers sound sharp, crisp, clear!
Summary: got my son a sony 1000 watt receiver for christmas when he moved into his apt. needed speakers we found these at amazom.com the best price and we shopped around. my son really likes the sound of the speakers and i was impressed with the sound for the price and of course the name brand is great. all and all they are really good starter speakers sound good great price.
Summary: I was a bit skeptical given the price, but after connnecting to my Yamaha 7.1 AV Receiver I was very impressed with the sound. The sound was very clear and crisp! Anyone who would say anything bad about these speaker is an audio snob and probably would waste $1000 on a more expensive set of surround sound speaker for only a marginal differance at best. These speakers are AWSOME and even better is the cost.
Summary: I read the reviews for this set, and was happy to try them. This actually was a holiday gift to my fiance. We hooked them up on Christmas, then turned the stereo on, and Oh my god! What a difference! Our dogs could not care less about the sounds from the "TV" before, such as dog barks, doorbells, etc.. Now with these speakers, they think the sounds are live! That's the best description I can think of, especially for the price!
