Re: Will reference monitors be any good as everyday speakers?
They are powered, so you can feed this thing with line level signal (Audio out). You will need a simple converter for that 1/4 in (Phone jack) connector on the HS80. The other option is XLR connectors, but you would normally need a high end pre-amp. Those are studio/musician speakers, not well suited for a HT setup, but still usable. Obviously you would have to buy at least 3 HS80m, as the center channel must match the left and right channel.
