Best Speakers for a budget
I bought these about a year ago after getting some extra cash for being stuck at work 48 hours straight. I have them hooked up to a Sony receiver that i bought at Walmart when i had an apartment. Saying that these speakers sound amazing. I fell in love with them at best buy and bought two of these along with 2 of the motion 4. I love watching movies and hearing the sound they produce. They are not bright and have a nice warm sound. I play everything from Rock to blues and Rap. I know once I get a better receiver they will come alive. Looking at maybe a Yamaha or marantz since they are in my price range which is 300-600 bucks. Then all I need is the subwoofer and center channel to complete the best sound ever.

Right out of the box
I bought two of these little guys to replace half a dozen Orbs. I decided to revert to a stereo set up and bail on surround sound. Call me old school. Audio has always been about music for me and multi channel reproduction has never swayed me.... at least within my fiscal reality. They are mated with a Sunfire Junior sub. Maybe it's because all three speakers are sealed enclosures that the integration seems close to perfect. They are "speed" matched. Quite a system that performs way above any expectations at this price level. I'm presently listening to the Phillip Glass' soundtrack to the film "The Hours". Strings and piano sound very airy and detailed. Other speakers in this range have a more smeared sound. They do like to be played with some volume to coax the best out of them. Can't wait for them to break in and see what happens to an already decent sound stage. Overall a fantastic bang for your buck when paired with a quality sub.

Amazing sound quality
Very pleased with system. It is great. Very easy to set up and all accesseries included needed for wall mount. My friend came in to check it out and he went to store to get one. Outstanding!!
