I am no audiophile but I have some experience with combining audio components to find a good sound. I've had this set for a few weeks now and am just a little dissatisfied with the sound they put out. That may be because I had high expectations when ordering them based on other reviews. These speakers can get really loud with no noticeable distortion. They just don't seem to have the full rich sound I was hoping for. I guess what they say, Bigger the speaker, bigger the sound, is very true. For a basic higher quality surround sound package these are fine but if you are looking for a deep and rich sound these probably won't satisfy you.
