As someone looking to buy speakers if you aren't going to post an alternative better speaker for an even better price it does look like you're just trolling. You said there's a lot of better speakers out there for the same price or less but you didn't mention any models. Which ones?

The sscs5 bookshelves are the winners here.
I have 4 pairs of them at my house. (HT, & study).
They do offer a lot in a speaker. But a small sub may be recommend, to help fill in the low ends.
Or a slight bass adjustment of the dial.

Not a bad price for full 5.1 surround set. Somebody gotta take down their thread though, since 2 people posted the same thing.

As for this deal, the real deal here is the floorstanding speakers and the sub. The rest of speakers you can already grab similar at the same pricepoints or cheaper.

Even the sub can be had better for around $20-$30 more. im talking about the Polk 10 inch sub.

So really the best value here is the floorstanding speakers. buy a pair of those. Everything else can be had better or at a cheaper/ similar price.
Actually, the subwoofer is by far the weakest link in the Core lineup. And it's not even close. The speakers are all very good and for this price they can't be beat. Peace

Yea totally agree. Just skip the sub. The best value here is the floorstanding speakers. Also if you notice, the floorstanding speakers are half off, while the rest are normal price. Im ignoring the atmos garbage branding, as they are simply just surround speakers with a fancy name.

I bought a pair of floorstandings only. $198 + $12 tax = $210. Not bad at all for a pair of decent floorstanding speakers :.)
All the speakers are 50% off and via Amazon a bit more than that. Peace And which speaker exactly are you referring to that is as good as the SS-CS5 bookshelf speakers for $73/pair or even less?

In all seriousness... complete set here or one of the basic Klipsch bundles?

I'm a fan of using towers all-around except for the center channel.

Have you heard the lower Klipsch lines of speakers? The horn loaded tweeter can be a bit much for some people to enjoy. The RP line has a less harsh tweeter, but those are more pricey in the Klipsch pecking order.

Surround speakers should be 2-3ft over your seated ear level, so unless you have something to sit the Sony towers on to make them far taller than they are, I would pass on the towers for surrounds.

Check open box at best buy for better prices yet. The towers go for 88$ with the sale. That's what I bought last time around and both my open boxes looked brand new

If a question can be asked here, what receiver would go well with this set up? I seen the Sony 7.2 channel for $298 on there but I just wanted some opinions. Also do we use banana plugs for these speakers or just speaker wire? Been a long time since I have bought some good audio.

This is a solid sub at the $100 price point, for those who missed the $130 flash deal for the Klipsch R-100SW. It is likely comparable to the Klipsch R-10SW, and perfect to pair with something like an ATS-1080 soundbar.

Riddle me this: Why does Amazon have the Sony SSCS3 towers rated 5-stars overall when only 83% of reviewers gave them five stars, yet the JBL Studio 530s are only rated 4-stars overall even though NINETY-THREE percent of reviewers gave them five stars? What's up with that!?
