This is a joke right? Those are shitty speakers. White van scam, not worth more than say 25$, and that's mostly the shipping charge from China. You've got to be kidding.

Checked the site.....a $1400 AVR that doesn't decode DTSMA or DD HD. I'm right on that one.

Actually it doesn't decode anything, you have to send it multi channel audio already decoded. That's cool though, I think Sonyenthusiast is just trolling. Funny, very funny.

They should compliment tipster's system, now he need a GranPrix blu ray player and some bootleg disc's. I guess a Sub would be completely out of the question unless the "white Van" comes around again. ....

No need for a sub with sweet speakers like that. I am sure they could reach 17hz at 95b with ease. What a joke, does this guy think he actually fool anyone around here into buying this crap

No disrespect, but I hope he didn't buy these and they were just given to him. And as a freebie, that's a good deal. But by all of his previous statements regarding HD and PQ etc, he definitely serious about his stuff. And if it works for him all well and good, but he shouldn't try to impress other with his refusal to acknowledge the results of a well assembled HT system.

Being given crap is still not a good deal. These are speakers that are made with very subpar parts and crossover components. There are stories of these things catching fire or damaging real receivers.

You have 500 watts of power for those things ?? they'll probably light on fire powering them with 500 watts. Besides there aren't to many 500 watt AVR' around, even pionner don't make'em that big. ?

Sonyenthusiast- without me being too much of a dick, you need to be aware of a few things Many of your claims are so misinformed or ill conceived that you have lost all credibility and have little if any hope of getting it back.

To keep you from possbly damaging your pioneer AVR or setting your house on fire, I suggest that you thoroughy read the following 2 links. They will show you exactly how great your MTS speakers are. Whoever gave them to you probably did so knowing they couldn't possibly sell them.
