I don't own this set, but I can whole-hearted say, this company's quality is no where near what it used to be. I have one of their newer high end surround sound receivers, it's junk.

I used to stand by their stuff for years. Anymore it's been basic at best.

For anyone asking if they are wireless, they aren't. Also, you don't want a set of surround speakers with wireless capability anywhere near this money. Also, anything wireless is still gonna need power, so you're running cords anyway out feeding batteries all the time. Either run the wires, get a sound bar that "reflects", or just run two speakers.

I swear. Everyone wants fricking wireless everything. Then they wonder why their WiFi sucks.

Almost every consumer grade product that is wireless runs in the 2.4GHz band. That is 802.11b/g and half of n.

Baby monitors, wireless security cameras, you name it. Much of it is 2.4GHz, and much of it is analog, which is dirty as all hell.

Stop with all the wireless. Either pony up the time or money and wire up everything you can. You'll be happier.

My Xbox has WiFi in it. It's cabled. My receiver has WiFi, it's cabled. Basically, if it has an Ethernet port, it gets cabled. If it doesn't, it doesn't. So now, on my wireless network, there are three phones, two tablets, and my Nest thermostat. That's it. Everything runs great.

If you have an Android, go download WiFi analyzers from the play store and look at the hot mess that is 2.4GHz in your environment.

Plus, wireless speakers are stupid. Even sonos. What a rip off. Like Bose. Excellent marketing, meh product.

Going by the specs, hkts 16 appears to be a better value at 189/- (or 140/- refurbished). You can wait a couple of weeks as the hkts 16 go on sale almost every month.

I own the hkts 16 and its the best value speakers you can get for around 200 (better than the polk tl1900 system I tried which costed $300).

If you're looking for a small room/bed room 5.1 its a solid deal. You'll still need a receiver though.

Depends on what you want to accomplish. If you want a good set of stereo speakers for a computer or something, the Klipsch is the way to go. If you have space for 5.1 and these are the top of your budget, then these would be the way to go, but you're still going to have to find a receiver. If you don't have one and you don't know what you're looking for yet, I'd probably see what I could get for $100-$150 on Craigslist.

Tell us how you really feel...

Just kidding. Well said and exactly how my home is. Took the time to run Ethernet jacks to every room and all of them have a switch.

Blame Samsung. They bought Harman Kardon.
