The Triad Nano is a solution only for a small secondary room and needs a sub to sound even decent. The Micro is pretty good in a decent sized living room and for its size works pretty well. Still needs a sub IMO. The Mini is good by itself but its huge. (and really still needs a sub) Use an AVR and a Triad Micro or Mini and a sub and you'll be happy. Two channel Nano or Micro off a Triad 8 zone amp with no sub isn't going to good IMO.
