Thanks for the info but I already bought speakers and I am happy with it. :)
Monoprice made tweaks to this Speaker setup and according to Cnet sounds better than the Energy Take Classics: http://reviews.cnet.com/surround-speaker-systems/monoprice-10565/4505-7868_7-35826981.html

It was also on sale for $228.71 a few weeks ago which adding in Speaker wire, Banana plugs & wall mounts with shipping would be around: $285 depending on your area. So maybe around $305 without the sale price but Monoprice does usually offer coupons too.

So you may be able to get some % off. Like use SURVEY13 to get $5 till the 11th. ;)

Just curious where and how much of a deal did you snag on those? They look pretty awesome but online retail shops seem sparse on carrying them.

$165, the satellites look like audiophile bookshelves lol. This Dolby TrueHD channel test sample comes out pretty nice:

Bought these:







They sound very good. I am not using them as they are intended to be used (as desktop multimedia speakers) so I am missing a bit of quality listening to them from a distance.
