These are slick below $65, good at $70, mediocre at $80. Also, keep in mind that this is the price for one single unit, not the two that you would need.

Highly recommended! I have a total of 4 of these in my 7.1 setup. Two on the L-R sides, and two in the L-R back. Mounted on the wall, wires invisibly buried in the sheet rock. Couldn't imagine anything being better. The sound disbursement is phenomenal, for movies and for gaming. If you are on the fence, just go for it -- especially at this $80 price; I bought mine when the sale price frequently went to $120.

Edit from above regarding price. Yes, I now see the note from digaphobia that this $80 price is for only one speaker. I bought these when they came in a set of 2, and then on sale for $120, maybe 4-5 years ago. Agreed, not very slick at $80 each. But still a very good speaker, and one that has obviously gotten a bit more expensive recently!

Thanks, this is really what i was looking for. doing a search i only saw them for about $68 with code. I had bought the R-15Ms ($100/pair) thinking i'd use them for side and rear, but do you think these are a better option?

I thought with Atmos technology you don't want speakers that throw sound in all direction. You'd want them point based, just guessing, great if an expert can chime in.

Yes, I know these are a better option. These replaced some Bose bookshelf speakers similar in size to the R-15M that I had used for years as surrounds. These are intended to be surround speakers and are tuned to fill that role. They fill the space with sound. They look a whole lot better too, fitting a purpose instead of looking like your setup was just slopped together with leftover parts.

Over in a AV forum, since I am planning on Atmos, then I should stick with the R-15s, thanks to both of you!

I think this is a excellent deal. One of the best sounding small surrounds I have come across. Grilles were removable on this model to see that slick, trademark copper cone if you want:
