I've recently purchased my second set of home theater speakers from Radiient Technologies. www.radiient.com
I'm quite impressed with the quality construction and great sound of the speakers; plus the exceptionally low price and free shipping.
Have others tried these speakers? I've read favorable reviews about them, comparing them with speakers in the $1,500 a pair range.
I currently own a set of the Radiient Helios speakers and purchased a set of the Calypso speakers for a friend and client. We're both estatic with them.
Eventhough they are setup as a 5.1 system (sub not included); I have not had a need for using the rear surround speakers that come with the package. But for only $250 or so, I'm not too concerned that I've wasted any money by not putting the rear channel speakers to use.
