    The 77 series speakers are quite a big jump in quality from the 700 series. Both in terms of sound quality and build quality. I have the 771e's which are great but the 773e's are equally well regarded.

    I don't think that a speaker range has been such good value in all regards since these were discontinued. :)

    773e were very well regarded and i always wanted a pair (they look well cool), the cinema 7 series which they were in was often considered the best sounding 'budget' speaker system. You should pay around £100 for a second hand pair or go upto £150 if there in pefect nick.
    They originaly retailed for £400 i think but richer was forever nocking them out for £200ish (maybe it was £800 and richer was selling them for £400, i'm sure someone will be able to correct me)

    £400 - i've had a pair for 5 years and love 'em! :thumbsup:

    i use them with a teac ref 500 system. i now have a plasma, and use the std teac and missions for sound - perfectly adequate for us.

    i've just been reading all the negative posts from way back on the 773e's :eek: alot of people think they lack bass. i have only ever been pleased with the performance (music and films) so i guess each to their own.
