Decided to purchase these for my bedroom, and had a quick listen to them in store, didn't sound to bad (especially with all the noise in store). Set them up and home, and the sound is fantastic, much better than my £500 Sony Pascal speakers for the lounge - and all for 79 quid!!! It's also a 'proper' 5.1 system with a great looking sub (in beach/brushed alumium) and metal cased sattelites in a brushed (proper) aluminium shell. The sound, like i said, is amazing, and goes very loud - me thinks i got a bit of a bargain. Linked them to my Sony 930 DVD player (built in DD/DTS decoders). Just though i'd let you know, hell of a bargain for those looking for a main/2nd room set at a (very) good price!
