Absolutely I've heard them and thought they were pretty sweet speakers. The top end didn't seem harsh and the bass was pretty damn good as well. I've got two friends over at avsforum that own them and they seem to be absolutely happy. I've only heard the 6.1's with the C3 center. Build quality is pretty fantastic as well. You would probably be better served to look for the swan thread over at avs and maybe call up the audioinsider and pick their brain as well.
