Sounds great for my little room. Only using it on stereo mode since I don't watch movies at all in there.

Cosmetic condition is ok, if you are looking at the speakers from the front they are flawless besides being dusty

the receiver is worth about $50, the speakers maybe $10

speakers sound good, it is all about personal preferences ;)
What may sound good to you may not be the same for me and vice versa.

true, but all around build quality and sound quality ****

the "what sounds good to you" only goes so far, then you get into onkyo, sony, toshiba, klh, etc..."speakers in a box" and that rule does not apply because honestly anyone with ANY ear at all can tell they ****

$40 for the receiver was a decent deal, but move on to better speakers

lol ok someone seems like they are having a bad day. I've done DIY builds and for what these are and for what I paid they sound great. I dare you to find something better for the price?
