"The Ruark ""VITA"" series was introduced as premium quality ""sub satellite"" system, that was designed to give first rate performance, to people needing a high quality home theatre speaker system, but with only the space for a smaller speaker. The usual compromise in components and cabinetry that ultimately result in a mediocre sound system, is certainly not in evidence here. On the contrary, the quality of the cabinets and components used in the VITA system are right up to the high standards set by Ruark and the VITA 100 center channel speaker is of course, the perfect match to the rest of the system. And since the majority of home theatre sound comes through this speaker, no other speaker should even be considered for use with the other speakers in the VITA system. The Vita 100 is part of Ruark's contribution to the world of sub satellite home theatre systems. Call for special pricing.
