TruAudio Speakers??

My local audio/video company wants to sell me some speakers that are dealer bought only, for my home theatre system. For Fronts and Centers TruAudio Tru-Cinema Model TC465 LCR(800$/ea),
Rears R2-8 in ceilings(650$/pair), and Tru Cinema TC-12 Sub-woofer(1500$). Has anyone ever heard of these? Are they any good? Is there something better out there for the price?

Most likely. The specifications for the loudspeakers seem underwhelming and the subwoofer overpriced. However, I have not heard this system. Have you?

I have not heard them. I am constructing a HT room in my basement and I really haven't owned a decent system to compare anything too. I goto dealers and listen to HT speakers but since they are not in my room its hard for me to compare.

If you can listen to loudspeakers in a minimally treated room (bass traps in the corners and absorption panels at the first reflection points) then they should sound similar in your room so treated (unless the audition room has something drastic like carpeting on the walls and ceiling). I would try to listen to any speaker before I would buy it.
