Strength:

clean sound for the price, small size

Weakness:

not a lot of bass

These are decent speakers for the price. They are lacking in bass but that was pretty obvious based on the size+price. In short, these were a better starter system than most of the inexpensive HTIB speaker sets out there. I'll probably replace the center channel and mains sometime down the road but right now I just have all the channels set to "small" speakers and let the sub handle the low frequencies. My home theater system has to be discrete / small in the living room and these guys don't take up a lot of real estate.

If you find them at a good price there pretty good. I bought them for my younger brother for Christmas. I would not use them with an older, narrow sounding receiver. He is using a Kenwood VR-209. It is matches these speakers pretty well. They are hooked up to a Radio Shacks SW-14 sub. It has a -6db crossover at 200hz which is the exact cutoff for the satellites. * The minuettes drop off heavy after 200 hz. But I don't like the high bass sound any way.
* The soundstage is fairly spacious. Nothing like the Energy Take 5's though.
* Highs and vocals come through strong and clean.
* Can't really crank. but can pay loud. Good on both music and movies as long as you have a sub.
Favorite thing to play is the battle with the Borg Cube it ST - First Contact. Dolby Digital. Deep bass and the laser blast and torpedeos coming from all direction show off his little system.

overall I'd give these speaker a 3 1/2 because of two minuses.
They need to go just a little deeper unless you find and odd sub with a high crossover. 100-140hz would be better
They are not that efficient. Only 87db. You need to turn your volume up a few more clicks than other speakers to make them run. They handle 80 watts. The receiver is rated at 100x5 but the actual power is closer to 60x5.

But because the price is $250 at Circuit City it a solid 4 mabye 4 1/2.

I bought the minuette system because i had a small room. For my situation it worked pretty well. Installation was easy because there were brackets to hang the satalites. The only problem was that you can hear that it is missing a bit of low midrange. I mainly use them to watch movies and i am happy with them. Actually i was more surprised than anything. I also bought the 8"sub(BU 1) also. After finding the best spot for it, it gave me the bass i needed for the small room.

I bought the LMPS system and a Velodyne sub at Circuit City. These lil' Infinity's are clear and the highs are crisp. One thing I notice is the lack of bass. I know small speakers aren't supposed to boom like a subwoofer but should fill in some of the low spots. The LMPS rolls off about about 200 and if you turn your subwoofer off, you can really hear what I'm talking about. I liked them because you can get the whole set for about $300. The velodyne does a good job of filling in where the LMPS fails but the 'seam' is so high (200hz) that it takes away from the music.

I purchased these speakers from UBID for $112.00. They're refurbished but look and sound brand new, not to mention they come with a 90 day Harmon warranty. They're not bad for surround speakers. I used four for the rear channels (the center channel is in the center, of course) pointing opposite directions. I have two old and big Pioneer 15" (read crappy) speakers up front. It sounds great to me! The Pioneers really have a lot of bass. Circuit City had the Infinity's new for $349.00. What a rip-off!! I've listened to the Bose systems and they sound great but cost about $1000 more than I wanted to spend (read cheap). Anyway, I suggest you check out UBID (www.ubid.com) if you really want some great sounding cheap speakers. Just like the other reviews, they're not really big on bass, but that's why Infinity makes the BU-1 and BU-2 subwoofers - right??
