I am currently in the process of deciding on a speaker package to suit my recently purchased Sony DB940 AV amp. Before I discovered this excellent forum, I was going to purchase the Sony SA-VE705 Pascal speaker package, which initially appealed to me due to size, design and price, I have yet to hear them though. I now realise that this may not be a good choice, they seem to get slated by almost everybody! I actually had a good look at a set recently, and was surprised to see that the bass unit had outputs on the back for the satellite speakers?? When talking to a apparently knowledgeable hi-fi and HC retailer, he also concurred that they werent much cop in the sound department. He also went on to explain that when they were launched (quite some time ago) they were probably aimed at a Pro-Logic set-up, and therefore they wouldnt be very good at reproducing Dolby Digital or DTS. This also apparently explains the speakers outputs on the back of the bass unit. Is this true, or BS?? Andy P.
