You're fast Eppie! Raha I'm still here looking at vinyls...here's the back.\n\n\nI'm a web search master. :D\n\nLooks like they used rubber surrounds, so no foam rot on the woofers but check the surrounds carefully for damage or signs of degradation. The S&V article made it sound like the S-Series was a starter home theatre setup. Why do they use terms like "studio" series and "monitor" for stuff that's not studio monitor level. Bah! Like I mentioned, $300 retail on the center. They didn't like the bookshelves for music, but said the speakers performed ok for movies and they liked the center better than the bookshelves. If it's something you could really use, might be worth a try, but if you're just curious I would wait and see if Mark has anything to add.\n\nEDIT: Hahaha... and there's Mark ahead of me. Sounds like you found a good one again.
