Yes, that's for sure. But even some of those high priced speakers are not all that either. Only ones i would really trust if i were to get expensive speakers would have to be Totem. Although i am not much for these smaller speakers, wish they stop the BS and bring back the good ol 8 woofer and not this small crap that requires more speakers + sub. As this is not what the OP wanted to talk about this be my last post on this subject.
