This is an amazing speaker, I will say I was disappointed at first, but it was all on my receiver setup. After working through all that, they are incredible. The speaker almost disappears and the detail of all the sounds you can hear is amazing. In addition, the bass these small speakers can put out is incredible. Highly recommended. With the S3 version coming out, these are an incredible deal now, with many reviews saying the S3 is only a minor improvement. For my home theater setups, I coded them as small, but moved the crossover down to 60 hertz and enjoy that much better.
I did get stands for these, as the sound isolation really brings out a cleaner sound (at a minimum do get better feet for them). For my stand I got the Monolith 24 inch ones (has the tweeter at the perfect height for seated positions), I filled them with pool filter sand from local hardware store about 3/4 the way up, did not use the spikes, and then used the half globe sound isolation pads, but did drill two holes on the edges towards the back with rubber gromets in them to connect an M6 bolt into the back screws of the speaker to hold it softly in place.
I liked these speakers when I heard them in the showroom. Now that I have had a chance to listen to them at home, I like them even more. They are particularly good at reproducing voices which is very important as I use them for video and music. I highly recommend.
