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?

Add me to this list... I returned them 2 days later.

And, Yes. They did play "Vogue" by Madonna. I remember how cool I thought it was that sound felt like it was coming from everywhere.
I went through the same sales pitch at Sounds Around, the disk they used was recorded with Q-Sound technology which give the 3-D sound.
That was quite the con job Soundsaround pulled back then... I remember getting their sale's pitch and buying the speakers only to return them on Monday after talking to a couple guys who knew about speakers than I did.
