Bottom Line:   
I use two of the CM42 as Rearspeakers in a Dolby Digital (DD/AC3) / Digital Theater System (DTS) System.

Together with the bigger 52CM an a JBL Sub10 subwoofer it's incredible Sound - connected to a european Version of the Sony STR-DA50ES, with an Sony S336 DVD Player.

I payed about 700$ for 2 CM52, 2 CM42 and the Sub10.

Bottom Line:   
Very nice and powerful "Mini-Speakers". Used them with selfbuilt subwoofer at the beginning. Now i use them as surround speakers with Klipschs as Main and a Ti100-Center as center. Teufel 825 is Sub.
Very good sound.
What i liked best is all about power.
My last Amp (NAD 312) with 2x32 was enough to power them nice. I also ran them on a party with an QSC RMX 850, which couldn't kill them at high power rates. (Of course don't try this with clipping active)
