Notice the sound not the speakers with this compact 5.1 surround sound system. These small front and satellite speakers are perfect if you want to be surrounded by sound and not even notice the speakers.
Their unique contoured design set them apart from the run of the mill boxy speaker. These small speakers can be placed on the top of furniture or mounted on the wall (mounting brackets are supplied for the 4 satellite speakers).
They give a surprisingly spacious and dynamic sound. The front speakers are shielded so won't affect any stored data or CRT screens, while the centre speaker is acoustically matched to the other satellites but has a longer casing for a broader, more even spread of dialogue. Together, the sound stage produced by the satellite speakers is enveloping and fulsome.
To add some heft to proceedings, the Pioneer HTP072 comes complete with a powerful subwoofer. With 100W to play with and a generous woofer cone, it drives soundtracks along with real conviction and the compact subwoofer delivers floor shaking sound effects. Combined with the included VSX-324-K-P receivers and compact speakers, this component home theater system will be the perfect addition to your home.
In terms of sockets, the Pioneer HTP072 has everything you need for a comprehensive home cinema system. Four HDMI sockets let you loop through HD sources and are particularly useful if your TV has only one HDMI input.
