Summary: I bought this set for my son in Dec. 2011 and recently purchased another set for myself. They get the job done, especially for the price. You will need additional hardware to hook it up. This is the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5. I bought both systems from anvshopper.
Summary: First of all I bought these speakers solely for music. I was on a budget but I was replacing a set of eagle tech soundstage computer speakers which compared to these seem overwhelmingly uncompareable.
Summary: I purchase this for myself,the downfall is you have to cut the length of wire to the speakers yourself,there is quite a bit of wire to do most set ups,theres no remote,you cant use all of the output channels, and the rca wires doesnt come with this system..
Summary: I recieved the surround 5 days before it was listed to show,I will put a comment on the quality at a later date,I purchased as a present for a friend for christmas,some time after christmas I will put a review,shipping was fast,I set it up and set up the levels,I am very impressed with this...
