Hoping to this offers fair advice after many years of interaction

Summary: Basically writing this review to give back. Every now and then I come across a review of someone like myself, who tries to give fair feedback on a product and it makes me think twice about what risks I might be taking.
Summary: I got this as I didnt feel like running wires for the rear speakers so decided on a 2.1setup. i was researching bose 321 system when in few searches people were praising this system. and amazon had a great sale for 199.99 so i jumped on it. setup was a breeze and sound was excellent.
Summary: I have been a Klpisch endorser for years. This 2.1 Channel system has a very well-balanced horn-technology which has a natural sound reproduction and the bass driver is excellent for an 8" down-firing unit. The price is extremely comfortable and the sound is even better. Thank you.
Summary: If I was like some reviewers who spent $199 on this system I'm sure my opinion would be different, but I paid $700 new for it when it was newer technology and it just didn't last. We started having issues 2 - 3 years into our ownership and after 4 years it doesn't work at all.
Summary: The system sounds much larger than it is. Very good quality sound. Right now, it's in for repairs after about 18 months. DVD kept freezing after about an hour of playing. It's a little slow in responding to the remote commands also.
Summary: Just wanted to throw in my two cents. I have been looking for a 2.1, 3.1, or soundbar setup in my living room. While I have a few top quality components (SVS Sub, some Energy Speakers) I simply do not have the space for a full 5.1 setup right now.
Summary: I have been a huge fan of Klipsch speakers for many years. Set up was easy and I didn't encounter any issues. Once hooked up, I found that I was truly disappointed in the sound quality. No matter where I placed the sub, it sounded muffled and loose.
Summary: I've owned both the Klipsch CS700 (still own) and the Bose 3.2.1 Basically they are both awesome for what they are (a 3 speaker set up) But they each are better than the other in one way. The Bose is a little bit cleaner sounding but the Klipsch has much more bass.
Summary: My husband and I purchased this system several months ago. We are using it on the main television in our family room with our new flat screen set.The sound is amazing. Crisp and clear with nice clarity.It sounds like your at the movies but without the loud booming thud-effect!
