Excellent speakers with an excellent amp. I needed to be able to play my blu-rays in 5.1 as my DVD panasonic 5.1 had no way to put my blu-rays through it. Very pleased with them - they arrived even before the main unit, which I had ordered from Hughes - arrived at their shop (Hughes didn't have these speaker add-ons, so I had to order them from Amazon). Why didn't I just order the whole lot from Amazon ? It would have been cheaper !
In performance it is brilliant. The remote is nice and small - not overbearing like some, and I dont need huge remotes to add to the pile I've already got.
Overall I'm pleased. If you want basic 5.1, it's just the job.
The power rating was 100 watts, and at first I wired the T.V. to the amp through one of the optical inputs, so that I could still use my Blu-ray and other stuff on their own so the T.V. didn't always have to have the amp on. But when I tested the amp it actually only used 40 watts, which doesn't add to much to my overall power consumption, therefore I now have the amp on all the time my T.V. is on.
