Being a newbie to HT, I was curious after reading everything I could on this great forum, in just about every catagory, and could find little, if any, comments about Pinnacle speakers. I agree with all the comments about Bose being highly over rated and over priced. I have four Pinnacle gold mini monitors ($349.00/pr) as mains and surrounds in my 5.1 set-up and the sound is is fabulous in HT and in music. Excellant clarity and performance. Please guys, don't tell me that these are thought of as another Bose Any and all comments appreciated. Proud to be a member of this fine forum.
