    I have never heard theses speakers. yet, I have read good reviews.

    I think that it is cool that Best Buy is trying upgrade their merchandise.

    Now, if they could only get knowledgable sales persons...:b

    athena Technologies comes from a very impressive company, API of Canada, which also manufactures Mirage and Energy speakers. Before I purchase pair of Energy C-1, I was looking to audition athena's speakers but can't find any local dealer with its new line. For what it's worth, athena has already placed several of its speakers into Stereophile magazine's "Recommended Components" list.

    Athena is an excellent snag for Best Buy. And, unlike many of the other authorized players for Athena, Best Buy has periodic sales and, of course, 10% off coupon weekends.

    I wouldn't take this as a "great" snag for best buy, it's a logical progression. Future Shop in Canada has been carrying Athena for a long time. Best Buy bought future shop and well so the story goes. Tada they are merging product!

    They are nice looking and ok sounding speakers. But not top of the line.
