Let me preface this review by saying that I'm not an audiophile. I know just enough to make an informed purchase. This is also my first home theater. I have this installed in a 15'x15' room with 9' ceilings. The receiver I'm using is an Onkyo TX-NR686. The speakers work great together. The audio is crisp and detailed. The subwoofer is plenty capable. This system is loud. I mean really LOUD. This speaker setup would do just fine in a room twice the size. I rarely listen to anything above 60% volume. And I have never gone beyond 82%which happens to be the THX reference volume for more than a few seconds. I fear anything beyond that will result in paint peeling from the walls and my ears bleeding. I would buy this setup again and will recommend it to anyone that is interested in hearing my opinion on it.
Pros: Massively powerful Ebony wood grain on the speakers looks good. Magnetic speaker covers are a nice touch.
Cons: The fear of tearing a hole in space time at high volumes
