I got three sets Dayton audio 30 bucks a pair speakers on special from Parts Express for my surrounds, and a center, they sound very nice combined with my Klipsch THX ultra2s if I do say so myself! I actually am only running 7.1 right now, since I'm using a pair for my digital keyboard / bedroom area (rah rah). My Marantz receiver supports 9.1 or two zones, and since I'm a big gamer, I definitely plan on trying out using front height outputs with some fiddling to get a good 3d panoramic sound going on. Fedex was nearly the price of the speakers! And with 6.5 inch woofers, they deliver decent sized sound. The PJ I bought it at 850, and the shipping is free from NCIX (I think). My total NCIX invoice was a bit over 900. I didn't get anything else from there. So, yeah, with the fedex import duties it was more like 1200, still not too shabby. I got 3 super long HDMI cables too. I have pretty much everything to get me through our Canadian "Long Night", the long dark winter -- of 3d movie goodness!
I didn't get an actually shipping tracking number yet, perhaps that means I'll be waiting till the next batch arrives? Not too worried, but getting it sooner rather than later is ideal. I wasn't planning on buying this until right b4 xmas anyway.
