Bottom Line:   
These speakers perform well for the money and are a good bargain. The subwoofer itself makes the package even more appealing. Watching movies with these speakers is a good experience but you would be better served if you replaced your center channel with a larger one like the CC2 or CC3. I ended up getting the new Interlude center channel from Infinity and the difference is extraordinary. It is highly important that you have a center channel that can pick up a wider range of frequencies so that you don't miss some of the sound effects; the provided center channel lacks the mid-level bass and the subwoofer doesn't pick up that signal.

All in all, the CMS-2 is a good deal and I am satisfied with them. But, if you want a fuller sounding system, it is not advisable to go with a satellite system.

Bottom Line:   
Well I have to admit that I'm impressed with this system. I bought from CircuitCity.com for $499, it arrived pronto, and it sounds great. The frequency response from the center channel could stand to be a little better (sounds kind of tinny by itself), but after some tinkering with the sub placement/settings the system works well. Incidentally, this sub (BU-2) totally kicks...the volume is not up high at all (I have downstairs neighbors) and my recliner still shakes when the SEALS go full-auto. For the price, I think this is an excellent system for those waiting to hear Dolby Digital 5.1.

Bottom Line:   
I got this HT speaker system recently. They sounded good. However, the speaker housing is poorly design for wall mounting. They came with 4 wall mounts (There are no wall mount for the center ???). They only provide a common screw to screw into the speaker's plastic housing. If you do it for a couple of times it will not hold. Many other speakers have special metal inserts in the speaker housing to receive the screw.
The Subwoffer SU120 has no no/off switch. The manual asked to connect it to an unswitched power supply. Is it necessary to have the subwoffer powered on all the time?

Over all I am happy with it.

You may be able to find them still at SoundPros.com or check for some being auctioned at eBay.com. If SoundPros doesn't list them anymore call or e-mail Scott and he might track down some or help with something comparable.
