Bought it at Kmart today.
Brought it home.
Fired up the AVR, made sure speaker levels were set correctly.
Subwoofer crossover checked.
Put in the movie, warned The Crew to brace for shock.
Got to the part in the movie where Vin Diesel is at the stoplight in his black charger.
Cranked up the amp. No, I mean CRANKED up the amp. We've had it ramped up before, but this time: Take no prisoners. Gag the safeties.
Perform some Non (hopefully) - destructive-testing.
O H M Y G A W D !!!
My little CS2 and M40's ? Oh yeah, them puppies can take a licking and keep on ticking. And, yes, my lil' Athena AS-P4000 subbie took it like a trooper. The Monitor 30's ? Well, .... "Hey, watch out for that train !!!'. The R30's did their duty when called upon.
And the ol' Onkyo TX-SR503 got mildly warm, not hot. "Please, sir, may I have another ?". :)
My speakers are definitely no longer green. :)
One of these days, I'll upgrade. Will eventually look for something that'll satisfy the musical needs,too, but in the meantime: for <$700 you can get something that'll bring a smile to your face, and ringing to your ears.
