Neither onkiyo or monoprice are know fir good speakers...so you will get what you pay for. But if 400 dollars is all you have, it will sound way better than tv speakers!
However, if that monoprice set is the rebadged energy takes, those would've my choice (of the two options)
You nay want to see if you can catch the Martin Logan mlt2 system...new egg has had that fir 250ish dollars and the drivers would be bigger than the takes!
