5 out of 5 eggsThe best Surrond Speakers I ever owned !!!

Pros: - Very High quality sound
- Very High quality high tones, mid-range and lows.
- Excellent quality material, look and feel
- Games, Movies and Music sound incredible

Cons: No cons.

Other Thoughts: I have 2 x RS 42 II for Surround, RC 52 II center and the Klipsch VF-36 Floorstanding Speakers hooked up to the Onkyo SX607 at 105 watts per channel and bi-amp for the Floorstanding and a 10inch Klipsch sub. The set up is incredible and the whole house shakes by just using 25% power :)
