    I took some pics of the Fluance speakers when I received them.
    I'm still waiting on the receiver so I can't really give a full review yet. I've hooked the two main speakers directly to the speaker out terminals on my Mitsubishi 35" TV. So far they sound pretty good. Nice and clear with a surprising amount of bass.
    I expect the Kenwood VR-507 to arrive on Friday. I'll give it a listen over the weekend and post my impressions soon thereafter.

    It would also be helpful if you compared it to something else you've heard. That way, other people can put your review in a frame of reference, which makes it much more valuable. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say.

    Hello, Earth to Bruce [​IMG]
    I am esp eager to hear the combo of the VR-507 and the Fluance speakers, as I'm considering exactly this setup for a cheapo system for a friend.
    Anyone know if the HTD level 1 (even cheaper, and with a sub) is comparable to the Fluance set? Cause HTD does have a great reputation!

    I've never really written a "review" before so you'll just have to bear with me. I'll start a new topic and link it to this one.
