I was able to pick these up for $299 at a local stereo shop. I am impressed with how these speakers sound. Yeah, the sub is a little small, but for the beginner, it's perfect. I was looking at other sub/sat set-ups and in that price range nothing came even close. The sound from others were very flat. These have a nice well rounded sound to them.
    I guess my aversion to these, are that he currently has a little set of surrounds.. yammies I think, for like $100 that he picked up a long time ago. He hooked them up several years back, and just laughed at the sound. It was really not even worth hooking up. So now, he just has all five of the little cubes sitting on top of his big bookshelves, and he only runs them for movies.. but you can't even tell the difference from those and his TV speaks.

    Therefore, after me buying some nice Polks, I think that is more of the sound he is looking for. I'm really leaning toward a Monitor Setup, or possibly those RTi25's or the such. I think I will be able to find them used over the next few months, to pick up a complete set for a reasonable price.

    RT1, I sure hope he likes it. Anything will blow what he currently has outta the water. I think he'll be really shocked, but that is why we give isn't it? :D I may make him buy his own cables... Haha. I know he'll have to re-arrange his family room, but I've been trying to get mom and dad to do that for awhile.

    I'm pretty sure I know what Yamahas you are talking about, and let me tell ya.....there is NO COMPARISON!!! Not even close! Those Yamahas are like listening to 5 GPX clock radios.
