For me and many others, speakers are something we have to actually look at as much as (if not more) we listen to them and we may not be the only ones in the house who do. With that factor in the equation (price being foremost) I had to consider and consult before even auditioning speakers. The Chane speakers may look good to some and sound even better, but they wouldn't make the cut in the looks department in my home.
