Summary: Bought these when I was putting together my first living room home theater and they have given me everything I would have wanted. I'm not an audiophile, but since I was spending the money to build a decent first time setup I did care about the sound. I have had them for about a year now and have had no complaints yet. Pro's: -Look great! Real slick with the polished piano black. Does make it hard to find other pieces that match it but I wont remove stars for that.
Summary: I have a pretty tight space for my home theater so I was looking for a sub that wouldn't leave a very big footprint. This setup is great! I will say that the sub isn't as strong as others I've owned previously, but that's to be expected due to its size. Also I have to note that the piano black finish does reflect the light from the screen. I was only distracted by it maybe once, but now that I've noticed it, I kind of wish they were matte black.
Summary: I just purchased these from a store that was going out of business for $200, new, sealed in box. The one concern I had was about the sub. From other reviews I read I wasn't sure if it was going to meet my expectations but for what I paid I decided to give it a shot. There is no doubt these speakers are beautiful. Overall I am very impressed with the sound and was actually a little surprised how the sub performed.
Summary: I have this since last 2 month. It sounds great. Also one thing to keep in mind if you are buying this product....buy a good receiver too, otherwise you will not be able to experience the true sound quality from these speakers. It looks great and sounds great too (which is more important than anything else).
Summary: My only hesitation buying these speakers was the notion they might not be powerful enough. I'm happy to say those fears were completely unfounded. Unless you are a hardcore audiophile or have a huge listening area these speakers are more than enough to give loud, rich sound with zero distortion.
Summary: I'm not a huge audiophile or anything, but I can tell you these are the most worthless speakers I've ever heard. I purchased them new via an online auction house because the price was reasonable and they looked great. They do indeed look spectacular, but they sound FAR worse than the ones that came with my cheap Samsung HTIB system (which these were supposed to replace).
Summary: I purposely bought this system because of the Piano Black finish and it's compact size. I live in a 400 foot studio so I did not need a super powerful system. It's true the subwoofer is onlyl 6.5 inches instead of the standard 10", however, for the size of my room it is more than adequate. The slim styling of the speakers, especially the freestanding ones, fit nicely into the room without being intrusive. And the black piano finish matches my HDTV perfectly.
Summary: Speakers look beautiful and sound great with the exception of the sub. The sub sounds ok but it just doesnt deliver deep enough bass when watching movies and playing music...at least for my tastes. Not really surprising though considering its only sporting a 6.5 inch woofer/ 75 watt amp. If your looking for a great sounding compact surround package with style in mind then I would recommend it. I on the other hand will be searching for a sub with more power in mind.
