Focal Sib & Co 5.1 & Onkyo TXSR605 - thoughts?



Disclaimer: Complete newbie! :confused:


I have been recently recommended the Focal Sib & Co 5.1 speakers coupled with an Onkyo TX-SR605 receiver for use within my home cinema set up.

I have recently had a demonstration of the two products and came away suitably impressed. However, I have read some reviews that claim Sib&Co speakers do not perform well when playing back standard stereo audio such as CD's:

"Given that the five Sibs are identical, good speaker matching is a given. However, this doesn't mean the sound is seamless; the Sibs make a sound that stays close to the box; very detailed and fast, but not exceptionally open. This is not necessarily a stumbling block; it just means the soundstaging is more wallhugging than room-filling. This does make the speaker system less handy with music, especially stereo music on CD."

I would appreciate any insights/views on the sib&co and/or the Onkyo receiver.
