It still works and has pretty good bass. Only using it as a 2.1 setup though because I'm not a fan of running wires throughout the room.
Note: I'm married; can't have it my way or the highway... it's a compromise
Yep, that's always tough unless your spouse is an A/V nut as well. Really tough to get nice speakers when the have to be 'decor approved', or completely hidden.
And yeah, when the Tv isn't on, at least here isn't a big TV just sitting there...for those who don't like that. Maybe save up down the line and get a nice retractable screen or something.
