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?

My apologies for digging up an old thread but I just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents here.

I purchased some nuance speakers way back in 1998 when I was only 14 years old... and I spent quite a bit of money (to a 14 year old!) - I believe around $1500 for my 5.1 setup.

To this date, they're still my main speaker setup and they've been used and abused on a daily basis for 10 years, including many nights of house parties where the receiver was turned up nearly as loud as it would go (I've had two denon receivers over that same 10 year period, an AVR-2800 and an AVR-3806).

I did upgrade the centre speaker about 4 years ago to a different brand as I felt that the centre speaker I had was not very good (it was the one speaker I cheaped out on as in 1998 I didn't realize how important a centre speaker was for movies).

Otherwise the subwoofer, front speakers and rear surround speakers have all served me well for 10 years now.

I'm the type of impulse consumer that buys new stuff all the time almost just for the sake of having the latest and greatest but for some reason I've never felt compelled to replace my Nuance speakers...
