Summary: Okay--I'm back. Everything is up and after a couple of weeks--total awesomeness!!! Especially with the great deal from Amazon! The picture is amazing--the sound is so good!! It was a little more difficult to get together than other systems. And I still cannot figure out why LG would err on too little rather than too much speaker wire length. But the movie clarity and sound and even regular tv is so much fun to watch. Plus the system is beautiful to look at.
Great Setup, Wireless Rears Speakers Are Great, All Around Great.

Summary: Purchased this about a month ago from a big box store locally that is why its not an Amazon buy as it was the same price. First of all not all things sound great in 9.1, if its not designed or programmed the sound can come from all over the place in not such a good way. If its 2 channel as you would get from standard HD cable most of the time, all channels will play all sounds but only justify left or right.
Summary: I bought these, intending to plug the speakers into my receiver and use the bluray as simply a player. I did not realize that the speaker connections were a connection that only plugs into the bluray console. Sadly, I had to return them but not before taking them for a spin. They sounded great! My only other negative is that there are only two HDMI ins on the back so if you intend to use these speakers on more than two devices, think twice.
Summary: The "wireless" rear speakers are only wireless to a rather bulky receiver box which then requires wires from it going to to the speakers. Now you have 3 devices and 2 sets of wires. So why call it "wireless"?
