This was my first experience with HT, since, I have upgraded everything I have after getting a DVD player from my son for Christmas. This set is a Pioneer VSX-305 receiver, Dolby Prologic Surround, 2)60 wt fronts, center channel, 2) 30 wt rears, and passive subwoofer. The receiver is about 200wt ? All well taken care of. They sounded great to me when I first hooked them up after only watching VHS tapes with just the TV stereo speakers. Then I heard a friends' 5.1 and thus the upgrade. But, like I said, they would be a great starter for a kids bedroom TV. I'm sure the receiver alone is worth the price. Everything is there including Remote and manual. Everything except speaker wire which I left in the attic and walls.
