Both the VSX-822-K A/V receiver and the SP-PK52FS 5.1 speaker package are each excellent bargains in their own right. Together, this is the home theater starter kit to beat. The receiver is mostly no-frills, but does all the essentials quite well, and does include several networking and wireless features and apps to boot. The speakers are really phenomenal considering their price. The subwoofer leaves a little to be desired in the low-frequency range though: with a -3dB point at 38Hz you're leaving off the last 5 or so keys of a standard piano. But it does well the important job of lightening the load on the receiver's amplifiers. If you have a higher power receiver, or a decent sub already, I would recommend buying this system piecemeal without the sub. If you're starting from scratch and are on a budget, you can't go wrong with the whole 5.1 system. Set it up properly and you will have one rocking home theater with very little cash gone from your coffers.
