All official info is below, but let me tell you my experience with them. I got this from a local guy on Craigslist and I really like it. This is how I have it hooked up:

PS3 to HDTV via HDMI
HDTV to Receiver via Optical.

That way it works for TV viewing and PS3 use. Very clear, and a powerful sub like everyone says. I watched a movie with all this cannon fire and it shook a paper off a desk near us, lol. Music sounds good on it, it's amazing how well it does for it's price.

I noticed when I started my search for speaker stands, that it was hard to find a match for them. But I finally found a set: Sanus stands model # HTB3b. You'll just need some extra hardware to get it mounted.

Get four 1/4 inch bolts about 3/4 or 1 inch long does the trick. I did1 inch but I'm sure 3/4 inch length would work. Then 4 nuts as well.Just get them at your local hardware store. These are not my photos (I'll take my own later) but this is how it's mounted:

I really like this surround system. For PS3/TV use it's great! I can see myself using this for a long time.
