I echo what xjebussx said. If you look a few posts below at my post 'Replacement for HTIB???' and you'll see what I am switching to. Like everyone else has said, the receiver with this system is fine, but the speakers are junk. If you listen to the dialog in a movie on the center channel, everything is muddy and ugly sounding. At first everything is great because it is 100x's better than any stock tv speakers, but you'll quickly become dissapointed with the system after a week or two of use.
