CrunchDeals: Boston Acoustics 5.1 setup for $249.99

mcs100mdnt In case you missed the Marantz speaker bar CrunchDeal from yesterday, Amazon is back with a decent deal on a true 5.1 setup from Boston Acoustics. It may not be as sexy as the speaker bar, but it will probably sound better thanks to dedicated rear speaker placement.

You will still need a 5.1 capable A/V receiver to power the speakers, but the set sounds good when properly hooked up. It includes four 3-inch satellite speakers for the front and rear locations, and a 8-inch 100-Watt powered subwoofer. Thankfully the deal includes free shipping ’cause the whole thing weighs 47 lbs.
