I just upgraded my backyard/patio system. I had an old pair of Bose bookshelf speakers that I replaced with some new Infinity P162's. What a pleasant surprise for $200 (delivered to my front door from Amazon). I will admit that the Bose actually sounded better outdoors than they ever did inside but the Infinity's are definitely a step up. The bass and midrange are outstanding. The treble sounds a wee bit grainy at times but I am probably exposing the weaknesses of my sources. Now I need to purchase or bulid some cheap stands. Any suggestions?
