Pioneer Elite sale, worth it?

Hi,

I am considering building a 5.1.4 Atmos system with the Pioneer Elite sale that's currently going at Newegg and Ebay. Originally I was leaning towards the other, cheaper Pioneer Andrew Jones non-Atmos offerings but this sale made me consider stretching my budget since value at these prices seemed worthwhile. Some numbers:
SP-EFS73 $250 each
SP-EBS73-LR $280 pair
SP-EC73 $130
SW-E10 $200

All of these clearance prices are substantially below previous sales and even the used offerings. Thoughts?

Thanks,
Jody

I would do bookshelf speakers instead of the towers, so that will give you more money to get a good sub from HSU or Rythmik

The price on the center is great, I ordered one myself.

The other prices are good, but you’re committed to upward-firing atmos then. If that’s what you want, it’s a great deal.

I'm not necessarily committed to Atmos it just seemed like a great opportunity to have that feature along with improved overall quality at these prices. Was I correct? I'm still hesitating and the sale ends today.

Just curious, is that specifically wrt home theater listening? Or would that be better for music as well?

Thanks
