AVS forum, Home Theater Shack, Emotiva Lounge, Chane forum classified, there is a set posted there.
wow so I wanted to buy a set, but since someone bought two I can't... IT says they're out, makes me sad

Same here. Was looking forward to buying a pair but can't since there's only one speaker left.
One left. Who bought an odd number of these?

For a surround sound system there are usually 3 speakers up front (Left, Center, Right). If possible, it's best that all 3 front speakers are the same model.
Could anyone give me a hand? Trying to choose a new pair of speakers for my tv. I'm thinking this pair or monitor audio bronze 2, or b&w 685 s2. A3rx-c and bronze 2 are about the same price. B&W will be like $200 more. They all have great reviews. What do you guys think?

One advantage toward these Chanes, they don't need separate speaker stands.
Well. Reviews are certainly positive. I know these aren't, and simply can't be state of the art speakers, because SotA drivers and crossover networks cost a lot more than these speakers do delivered. But are they "good enough"? The cost of entry is very minor. I may join this drop.

Look into XBL^2 drivers...
GUTB
They absolutely are state of the art and punch far above their weight.
these or MA BX2?
So, where do these speakers fail? They have ribbon tweeters so I expect high end to be sharp / detailed. What about mid-range fidelity and imaging? Are they sloppy / flubby in the bass?
GUTB
There is no failure in any aspect. Audio for treble, mid range, and bass is all high fidelity. The reason these don't have a typical high fidelity price tag is because the owner/builder is dedicated to bringing great sound at reasonable prices by keeping his overhead low and using lower cost cabinet finishings (vinyl coverings instead of piano gloss black paint). He uses higher quality (cost) components where they matter, in the sound reproduction system, not in the finishings, not in advertising, not in his pocket.

This link takes you to a speaker shoot-out at HomeTheater Shack. The Chane A3rx-c (the speakers on sale here) are not in the shoot-out, but it's big brother the A5 is. The A5 will have slightly deeper range and will be able to play slightly louder before distorting, but the A5 and the A3 will have the same audio fidelity.
An important note about the HTS shoot-out web page...
At the beginning of the page there is a graph/chart that shows poll results for the speakers (the ARX A5 has a low number). This chart is NOT the result of the shoot-out, it was a poll taken before the shoot-out of who thought which speaker would win.
The Chane ARX A5 did win the actual listening test.

Both the A3 and A5 have had improvements made since then.
