I see no one has replied so let me be the first to say I honestly love this particular speaker. I finally replaced my old school technics and these where the speakers that took there place. The bass they can produce is great for music and does great for movies as well. I think you will be very happy with your choice. I do not use a subwoofer for my 5.1/6.1 setup, and with these speakers... have no complaints, sounds great. Enjoy!

Etronics gets lousy reviews as a store... beware.
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal labotomy.

I will second this w/personal experience. I even reviewed them (fairly!) on Resellerratings.com.

Watch out. They won't outright rip you off, but their customer service STINKS and God help you if they don't have "Item X" in stock. They'll charge your card for it and you'll wait and wait. Even if you call and CANCEL the order, get a cancellation number and everything, they will STILL ship the item to you, charge you for it and then give you a hassle about the RMA process.

Thats' what happened to me. And it was only a $50 item, but that is not the point. YMMV though. Oh, they DID package the item really well. Posted Image
Yeah, I base all my HT purchases on the WAF, too. Wallet Acceptance Factor.

It hurts me to see people waste their money on Cerwin Vegas.

I don't know what people have against cerwin vega speakers, their good for what some people need, others prefer paradigm but to each his own. I'm not sure about etronics customer service but my purchase from them went pretty great just as well as buying it from a regular store. And their prices are pretty good too.

Funny, I have ordered several things from them in the past and never had the slightest problem. I guess I was lucky, but for the prices they have I am going to continue with them until I have a problem. I just got a pair of JBL e-80's (retail $750 at BB) for $400, shipped. They were at my door in 4 days, would've been three but DHL requires someone home to sign for them...which I guess is a good thing.

I am also going to buy the JBL EC-35 and E-250 sub next week. We'll see if I have any problems.

I also just checked price grabber and out of 1342 reviews they get 4 stars ... so they're not that bad.

I bought a set of JBL Studio speakers from ETronics and I thought their customer service was very good.

Much smaller sample size though as compared to Pricegrabber (only 167). Out of curiosity I did a search on other retailers at Reseller Ratings:

Circuit City: 3.36
Best buy: 2.21
Crutchfield: 9.82
Tiger Direct: 7.42
New Egg: 9.72
Amazon: 7.11

So Etronics may not get the ratings Crutchfield does, but take a look at the prices on etronics vs crutchfield. If I can get almost half off, it's worth it. If anything ever does go wrong I simply call my Credit card and have the transaction removed.

I tend to highly doubt Circuit City or Best Buy are nearly as bad as it appears. While I am not a big fan of either store, this just looks to be the work of bashers. If either were that bad there is no way they could remain in business. So take all these reviews with a grain of salt.

From an old marketing class I took in college: a happy customer tells one person, an unhappy customer tells twelve people. Ratings are good info but maybe not to acurate. However, if someone takes the time to complain they usually have good reason. But over 9.5 for Crutchfield and New Egg(?), that's pretty impressive compared to the others.
"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
 
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.

Older thread but have purchased 2 receivers from E-Tronics. Even had to do an exchange. Great service!

What happened to Cerwin Vega? Seemed like while growing up they were popular, but they get zero love around here.

CV's are great if you want to just pump out the tunes and rock the house. There are better options when you want to actually sit and listen. Soundstage on some of their products are not quite there, but that's not what they were created for...

Well...if the OP is still waiting his decision (three years later) until he gets enough opinions...that'll be really helpful! Posted Image
