    I was given some Wharfedale Valdus 500 Cinema Package speakers, are these any good?

    Also, will I get the most from a Pioneer VSXD912 amp using these?

    The Valdus fronts are real rockers! I went to a party last year in a large house and the DJ's used them - went VERY loud with no distortion on the end of a NAD C370. Wicked! :cool:

    However that centre speaker looks abit small to properly match those big floorstanders tonally. Worth giving it a try tho'. Any sorround setup is better than none eh? Your Pioneer amp is a goodun' and will have no trouble driving the set.

    My friend has pretty much the same set-up.

    And the centre speaker, is a lot better than I expected.
