There are a number of things my wife didn't come with (like a manual) but she did come with a really nice sterio...albiet older. The amp is a great old yamaha, as are the speakers. In fact from years of accumulation I have several old sterios's computers...sets of speakers...(but thats another storey). I was thinking the other day...maybe I should try them out in my home theater. I have a HK avr 510 with surrounds and a 250w sub woofer...Is there any reason I shouldn't try this...replacing the front and rear remotes with these big old clunky speakers?
