Thanks, how will these speakers compare to the Polks r150 or AR A2.
Have no clue, never heard them. But I've never heard the AR A2 either. Someone is this thread did buy the Dayton satellites and gave them a great review. But you'll have to go back many pages to find it.
But for $32/pr are you really gonna complain?
Will this system work well for movies and gaming
It'll be fine for movies. Don't know about gaming because I don't play them at all.
But for $500 for a receiver, 5 speakers and subwoofer, you're doing much better than if you would have purcahased a HTIB system.
I will go and listen to most of the speakers if possible
I doubt it. None of the speakers are available in stores. Best Buy stopped carrying the Athenas long ago. And they Daytons can only be purcahased online.
I can tell you this. I have an Onkyo 5xx-series receiver, Athena B1 and C1 and Dayton sub and I use it daily. I'm very happy with it. My Dayton sub is an older model than the one you're purchasing though. My system was also ~$500.
