If they look and sound great, then go for it. If there was damage to them, it should be fairly obvious. They are great speakers, and if you like their sound, it's a great deal ($1500 off list).

IMO, if you already have a receiver that you are happy with, there is no need to "upgrade" it. You can also get a BluRay player with dual HDMI output to solve the problem (although I would wait until...

Agree. Audio memory is poor in everyone. If your speakers and your friend's speakers were in the same room, IMO you could easily hear the difference. Did you at least listen to the same CD in both...

Most here stay away from Samsung due to poor reliability and poor customer support. I'd stick with Sony or Panasonic (or Oppo).

I use Billy Joel's Angry Young Man on his Turnstiles SACD. But as others have said, you need to use music you are familiar with.
