Summary: This is a beautiful piece of equipment. I am using it in the family room. It sits directly next to the black console table that our TV sits on, and does great to fit into the decor of the room. The sound is perfect, not too much, not too little, well balanced. I am running it with the JBL CSC55 two way center channel (which also looks great and sounds amazing) along with JBL in wall speakers for the front and rear surround.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Connect, Great Sound Quality
Summary: excellent sound reproduction without being boomey, realy provides depth to surround sound system with movies. The platic cabinet is black and silver and will go with just about anything, if you like gloss black - a bit cheesy for me but it's in a tucked away corner of the room.
Summary: I purchased the product as a package with 4 CST55 Floorstanding speakers and a the CSCC55 Center channel speaker. The are connected to a flat screen monitor via a Denon 3803C A\V Receiver. The set up was fast and easy and the sound quality is fantastic. I have challenging acoustical issues with a warehouse type configuration to the listening area. The speakers are a great value with big sound qualities I did not expect from a 2 way system.
Pros: Attractive Design, Compact, Easy To Connect, Great Sound Quality, Powerful
Summary: For watching DVDs, this is a must-have for the CS speakers. It delivers the right amount of bass to compliment the speakers. For music, it is pretty good, but the volume has to be adjusted up on the subwoofer for sufficient bass. The design is attractive and fairly small. My biggest complaint is that the power switch, volume control, and power/standby light are all on the back, which is very inconvenient.
