You simply couldn't ask for more in terms of authority, power, impact, control, and sheer SPL output at anything approaching this price.
If you're building a complete surround sound or object-based surround system, the system is frankly a ridiculous bargain. Five stars all the way. For just over $10,000, you can have a truly spectacular 5.2.2 speaker system plus amplification. Just add surround processing and a display and you'll be the envy of your neighborhood on movie night (once we can start inviting our neighbors over for movies again, that is). Seriously, you'd have a hard time putting together a component speaker system with accompanying amplification that performs this well for ten grand.
“There's just so much to love about this system: its musical-but-muscular bass, overall dynamic impact, wonderful dispersion from surrounds and LCR alike, unimpeachable dialogue clarity, excellent imaging, utter lack of distortion, and beautifully neutral sonic signature. That's not even mentioning the gorgeous design of the speakers themselves. Put it all together and what you get with the Theory Audio Design system is a truly world-class home theater audio experience that sounds like it belongs on a mixing stage and looks like it belongs in the sort of luxury Midtown Manhattan penthouse apartment that I could only dream of affording.”
