Since there is no review of these speakers anywhere on the internet I feel some added responsibility to put one up.

I am no CNET, but here we go:

The Good:

They look high end with a high gloss piano-black finish. Surprisingly powerful for the size. Music sounds good.... not just for movies.

The Bad:

Closed boxes and the connections are push terminal, which seems kind of low end. I had trouble getting my large speaker wires into the terminal. The center speaker is a bit underwhelming, but blends well if the front speakers are close enough.

The bottom line:

If you want a great bang for your buck and are on a serious budget, then these are a deal. MSRP at 450 puts them up against "The Pioneer SP-PK21BS" and the "Engery Take Classic 5.1", which is some stiff competition in the budget space (probably why they lowered the price). I would not pay $450 for these speakers simply for the connections and being closed box. However at $225 (as of 12/31/2011) and with the Pioneer CNET choice speakers on back order these things start looking good. If $175 difference from the Energy Take Classic helps you convince your wife you need surround sound, then go for it.

I have these connected to an Onkyo TX-SR607 and am replacing some Polk Monitor Series speakers. Out of the box I thought I would have to return these because of the size and quality of the connections. So I only setup the front and surround sound at first. Well, I was really impressed by the sound after playing about a half dozen songs from different genres. So I unboxed everything, sub and all, and then did Audyssey config. Watching TV was a bit getting use to because my Polks (just two speakers) do a great job filling the room.

Great sounding system, especially for under 200$. My friend and myself both ordered a h/k avr1700 receiver and different speaker systems (his being a Polk system ) and this one sounds crisper and more full bodied, in fact he liked it so much more, that he is boxing up his and ordering this system.

Yea it has push terminals, but so what?

And for those who say the center channel is inadequate, no way, if anything, the rear surrounds are a little on the weak side. But other than that, the highs and mids sound fantastic and. the bass, wow, earth shaking. (Probably from the sub box which is huge)
This little speaker system makes my Bose 2.1 system (for computer ).sound like a 90$ Logitech system

This is a very nice speaker system i got these to go with my 6 ohm energy tower speakers as this was the only set i could find that was 6 ohm and for the price range i expected less but wow these are very well made very stylish and solid and sound amazing. Just a heads up the pwr sub is much larger then the picture makes it look its massive and very sexy with great full rich bass. the packaging of the product was top notch and with Prime i got them in 2 days. if your looking for stylish well made set of HT speakers with rocking pwr sub for budget price look no futher you will be pleased with this set.

These speakers are pretty awesome. They work well with my Denon AVR-S510BT system and fill up the room (house) nicely. I can crank the volume all the way up, and these speakers hold up pretty well.

The design is also pretty slick and will look nice in any room

My only complaint is that, although I'm not an audiophile, i can tell these are not as crisp as other systems I've heard out there, but for the price difference, I'm willing to live with that.

I purchased these speakers last year along with a SONY STR-DH750 receiver. Together the sound produced is magnificent. I listen mostly to classical music and these speakers produced a full range of orchestral sounds and wonderful clarity. When watching a movie or football game in surround sound I get the feeling of being in a theatre or stadium. Previously I used Jamo studio speakers and was worried that such a small speaker set would be unable to compare to what I was used to.

Excellent sound, quality , and value. Couldn't be happier with this set. My only negative comment is the center channel is difficult to wall mount, with a flat screen mounted, because it is so large.

while I am not an audiophile, this system, connected to my Sony receiver is providing awesome sound. My living room now sounds like the theatre I wanted it to sound like when watching movies and the sound when listening to music is equally awesome. The front and center speakers are mounted on the wall at the front of the living room, pointed to a spot just in front of my couch. the rear speakers are mounted on the back wall and pointed to the same spot, the volume is balanced to that spot and the result is some really awesome sound. the adjustable, powered sub-woofer is great. I am quite pleased with the speakers
