Summary: I had these for over 7 years and I loved them to pieces. They stopped working on me, and I'd love to replace them, but why are these almost $2,000? I paid 200-300 for mine at frys in 2005. Not sure why they are so expensive on here.
Pros: Excellent sound quality Perfect stereo imaging (esp. in a near-field setup) Satellites can be wall- or stand-mounted Beautiful finish Deep bass Speaker cables can be changed to higher-quality cables if desired
Cons: Low hum coming from subwoofer whenever on Audible hiss from satellites *and sub* whenever on Subwoofer isn't magnetically shielded (not a big issue in these days of LCDs)
Summary: I have two sets, one in my living room as a small home theater system (Unbelievably great for movies!!! I really think for a small living room, this would rival any full size system!) and one in my home office for my computer (Who wants to work into the midnight hours without being able to blast their iTunes? Not me). I have been cranking mine for over 3 years and they are awesome!
