I liked the small size of this product, but once I received the item, the power/volume control was large and heavy. It is bulky and is extremely unappealing.
I couldn't wait for this receiver to be delivered. I hooked it up to my components with HDMI cables and used a fiber audio cable from the TV to the Sony receiver and used a coax to the subwoofer behind my couch. We tested with Planet Of The Apes and the performance was incredible. Plenty of power to all 5 speakers and the sub, and I love the way the info pops up on my TV when I'm deciding which audio setting I want to use while listening to music or watching a movie. The Dolby D.C.S. Cinema sound is fantastic and the receiver is solid for the price.
I needed a heavier duty speaker for some free dj'ing gigs. I put these on speaker stands to get them off the ground, and it really helps the bass. Light and easy to mount, with lots of speaker connection options. I use banana plug at the ends of my heavy guage speaker wire. They're 25 ft compared to the 15 foot speakon cables that came with my speaker stand package. I only use a home theater receiver which also has banana connectors, but if I ever get a pro level amplifier the speakers will be able to handle anything (speakon, 1/4 phone, bare wire, or banana plugs). I recently provided audio and visual for a ski movie. I used these speakers on MONO with a separate powered sub. To augment the vocals, I ran a separate output to a powered speaker through a small mono crossover device. I set that speaker to about 250 hertz cutoff, while the pyles were running at 100 hertz. The sub handled anything below 100, with my receiver doing the splitting between the sub and the pyles. Sounded excellent.
