    I'm seriously considering getting those for my Uni Room - I listened to the previous versions, and they were very good, not sure on the new ones, but if they are THX certified they aren't going to be poor...

    Yup, theres no way I'd get my Home Cinema set in the room, so they seemed like a good compromise (though only 200w, versus the 600 of my Panasonic 5.1 set)

    I tried those out, but I then bought, and recommend instead, the Altec Lancing MX5021 have a look here http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=112146 and also check out their reviews in lots of places.

    For me, the sound quality is way better...
    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.
