    After owning two sets of Logitec surround sound 5.1 speakers for my computer, and having both of them stop working after barely over a year of use, I decided to go with Yamaha, a brand with a long established reputation for building good quality speakers and audio products. The speakers sound noticeably better than my last set, have really good specs for frequency response and distortion levels, comes with a huge subwoofer, and can handle enough watts to meet my expectations for the need to listen music at least as loud as concert volume. I have not watched movies using surround sound yet, but I paired the speakers with a new Sony amp STR=DH540 (also $129) and plugged in a new Chromecast, and now once again I can play music from my computer, only this time it sounds even better and I'm expecting it to last and use it for home theater as well.

    I bought this as a gift for my younger brother that just bought his first house. Along with it I gave him an older 5.1 Sony receiver (STR-DE845) to make up his first surround system. I was actually quite impressed with this set up in a medium sized room. The sound from the center and sattelites was detailed, and very clear. The 8" sub had no problem pumping out plenty of LFE for the room. Obviously this is not an audiophile quality setup, but it is a competent setup that far exceeds the low end HTIBs that are out there.

    Bought these to replace a set of sony speakers that were over 10 years old. I have these speakers hooked up to a Denon receiver. The sound is great for movies, video games, and music. The only down side is that the power button for the subwoofer is located on the back. May not be too big a deal depending how you got your system setup. Also keep in mind that the speaker wire is just one long piece, so you will need to cut and splice the speaker wire yourself. Overall, very pleased with the purchase.

    they sound excellent except I wish they had a 7.1 like it with a price to match. my Yamaha receiver is a 5.1 + 2 and (2) bass ports. So just got these excellent sounding speakers and bought 2 more speakers and another powered subwoofer and it just kicks rocks so hard in my family room. Love it!

    Shortly after we hooked up the new speakers, the neighbors came over. One turned to the other and asked, why doesnt our TV sound this good? That was great :). Now these arent the best speakers youll ever hear or anything. But when you consider price, sound quality, and even looks...I think these are a fantastic value.

    I was a little cautious ordering this because of I thought it might be under powered for my Yamaha amp, but I was willing to give it a shot, especially for this price. I was pleasantly surprised how great the volume was and how crisp and warm the sounds were. I tested it out with Twister, Blackhawk Down, and even less action driven movies like Stranger Than Fiction and the sounds were bold, crisp & clear. Worth every penny and then some.

    I liked that this surround system was in my price range. It is a great set for the cost and does the job well. I don't need anything too crazy so I didn't feel the need to spend tons of money. They were easy to install and came with everything necessary to hook them up. I have them hooked up to a Yamaha receiver so I am unsure how they work with a different brand, but they seem to work well so far with my set up.

    Yamaha Delivers Again

    I haven't owned a ton of stuff by Yamaha over the years, but everything that I have was pretty solid. This will not be the same sound as a high dollar setup but for under $150, I am pleased. Hooked it up to a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Zx SB1506 sound card in my PC, and I am happy as can be. I can tweak it with the cards EQ so I can't tell you what it will do hooked up to a receiver, but I'd guess it sounds as good.
