Strength:

stylish, small size, inexpensive, ok for movies--but, not great, comes with cables

Weakness:

thin sound, muddy bass, cheap, horrible for music

I got this for a steal from BestBuy.com--200.00. I purchased them because Best Buy lists these speakers as "extended response" ideal for dvd-audio and sacd. Don't be fooled, the actual satellite speakers frequency response rate is 120Hz--not even close to the 26Hz advertised. In order to experience high definition audio--the speakers need to reproduce the bass frequencies--ideally down to 20Hz--close to which these satellite speakers cannot even approach. Also, BestBuy.com lists thes speakers as producing high frequencies up to 50kHz--again, don't be fooled, as we can only hear up to 20kHz anyway. While this set is ok for movies, probably just because of the sub, it is not a good choice for music. Even for movies, the center channel is thin and lossy. Needless to say, I returned this cheap set of falsely advertised speakers after a horrible experience purchasing them through BestBuy.com. If you are on a tight budget and want small, stylish speakers, with cables (but no cetner speaker stand) for a moderately acceptable movie watching, then this set is for you--otherwise, keep shopping.
