Did you also read on any of those threads about why this forum hates those speakers? I would say that even at that discount price you're paying too much but I'm probably not adding to this thread. I've heard the acoustimass system because my uncle has them and everything in the sound is congested. Even when it's turned up there's so much stuff missing from the actual movie, you might as well just leave it on the TV speakers. I've never heard the Cinemates so I can't help you on that.
