thought i'd chime in on this thread. I recently bought and received my PL-89 Home Theater system off ebay. I have had it for a few days, and it's an awesome setup. The pl-89 towers and the pl-29 center sound very crisp, while not too harsh although like lilmike2069 i turned the treble up even more b/c that's my taste. They're not nearly as harsh as my friend's Klipsch reference series setup. The ht-63s blend with the towers and center perfectly. I was never quite the believer in having matching surrounds with the front 3 speakers as i had the Sony SS-B3000 speakers and let me tell you there's a huge tonal difference between them. I am totally satisfied with the speakers however the bic h-100 leaves me wanting more for a sub. Don't get me wrong the sub is good for the money without question, but i'm heavily into car audio plus my friend has the axiom ep500 and it kicks ass. The axiom is a 1200-dollar sub so of course it cannot compare. Anyone stepping up from a htib sub will love it and i like it, just don't love it. The bass from it isn't as consistent as other subs i've heard in the 35hz and below range but again for $250 it's a steal. I'm currently looking at purchasing an mfw-15 or an epik subwoofer. All in all, i'm very happy with the acoustech speakers, they sound awesome for the amount paid for them.
