I just purchased these Monday and received them today. I debated for a while on purchasing these and when they went on sale for 269 on amazon i jumped on it.
Like the user above says, if you want to use these for a LARGE room, i wouldnt recommend it. However if you are using this as a bedroom surround sound system or simply to put around your desk, these are WELLL WELLL WELLL worth the money.
Set up plays a huge roll in the sound quality of speakers, as well as what they are connected to and the connection used between them.
Make sure that when you set these up they are not mounted in the corners of a large room. Speakers are meant to be mounted at EAR level, not at the top of a room, this is huge in how they will sound.
go to dolby's site and check out the set up guide.
