Nuance speakers

A sales guy tried to sell my step dad a full 7.1 setup of Nuance speakers.... They didn't sound all that great but he went on and on about them.

My step-dad is looking for a system for his summer home, he's running Wilson Pups and MacIntosh Amp and Receiver at our house. (Don't ask where the money comes from) So he really knows what sounds great and has the disposable income for some decent speakers. I told him to stay away from Nuance, they sounded very strange and I couldn't find any info anywhere on the internet.

What do you folks think? And what do you recommend?

OK I am not gonna say Nuance is the Sh** cause its not,but.... and hear me out... my roommate bought a set of 5 (two 6 foot fronts, two 4 foot rears, center) and they sound decent.... why, you ask would he buy them if they only sound ok? because thanks to the selling pressure of the aforementioned retailers some poor sap bought them on credit (10,000 plus with amp and projector/screen if i remember right) and then he couldn't pay so my friend took them off his hands for 3000 for the whole bit, brand new, so for that price and i must admit there warranty is not bad, we blew an amp in one of the front tower, they have built in subs (probably due to transporting from northern Man, to Edmonton in the winter ) we walked into a nuance dealer with the amp said "its broken" and walked out 2 mins later with a new in box amp no questions asked, so all in all if i was building my "ultimate home theater" no i would not use nuances, but there not evil if they have the right price tag :)
