If I only had the extra money... oO

Amazing speakers

use to have this, loved it, never any good for music though, only got rid as didn't use it enough to warrant having black boxes nailed to the wall

Agree. Great speakers for cinema surround sound with the right amp

They come with two different type of eall brackets - go with that. You will have to used something like D-Line to trunk the cables if you don't fancy channeling into your walls.

The speakers come with small corner brackets, as a previous poster said, I didn't want to dig into the wall so I used the d-line, it looks very good,

Got these from richer sounds a few months ago when on offer. Good speakers and sound great hooked up to a Pioneer AV amp. Would recommend.

I've got 2 sets of these, 1 black , 1 white.
The key is the amp that drives them and setting it up properly!

Ive got a Black set attached to a Sony SDHR 820 and they are a nice rounded warm sound in a 4m x 4m room
The other set is on an entry level Teac amp and in a large Kitchen diner. The sound isn't anywhere near as impressive or as warm but i put that mainly down to the amp.

I had this set and they died within 3 months.

ive recently bought the onkyo txnr626 from richer sounds. the amp itself is awesome with loads of features. also dolby armos ready. when i bought it onkyo were giving away 2 free atmos ready speakers which arrived the other day. i would recommend this system, but would totally depend on cost

I think they are at this price for at least for one year and a half... So cold for me....

Works great with a sofa.

Got these speakers with my Sony 1040...formidable speaker setup especially for the price!!

Or install coving, and hide the wires in that.

Does anybody know where I can buy a new white set?

I was looking a few months ago and they were available for £199 but I can't find them anywhere except eBay (used). Have they been discontinued?

Any suggestions on another white 5.1 speaker set, along with a decent amp (doesn't need to be white, it's going in a cupboard).

How did they die? you blew all the speakers at once?

I've got a denon AVR-1507. pretty old by moden standards, but was a what hifi award winner back in the day.

Well, the sub died. I ordered through Sevenoaks who were fantastic, they swapped them out with a more expensive model without fuss. So it all worked out in the end!

Would these be any good for mainly playing music? With the odd bit of Movie viewing now and then ?

Also be careful with your source. If you're going to plug an MP3 player using a headphone jack to your amp to listen to youtube, they will sound terrible. Have to use proper sources, with proper connections IMO.

When I stream youtube using chromecast then optical connection from tv to amp, its sounds in a different league as an example instead of just connecting my phone to it.

The most noticeable difference is volume.

Any suggestions for an amp to run these?
