I bought three pairs of these speakers to put throughout my house. They aren't audiophile quality by any means, but for the price they work far better than other speakers in the same price point. I have a pair in every room of my apt and they fill the place with sound quite nicely.
I would NOT recommend these for use with a surround sound theater system. They can't crank out enough volume with the clarity necessary for movie watching, but for everyday low to medium volume listening, they are perfect.
