    Not impressed

    My first impression after powering these speakers on was YUCK. I picked them up for a set of cheaper garage speakers. I also picked up a cheap 2 channel insignia receiver at the same time. The tweeters have a mild distorted sound all the time. There is not much low mid range. and the overall sound is muddy with a hard to put your finger on not pleasant high range. Also it seems that every instrument sounds flat with out any depth. Not the worst speakers i have ever heard but far from the best. Just for a test i hooked them up to a $3,000 Adcom amp with a marantz preamp and the sound did improve. With LOTS of equalization they can sound passable. There is just something about these that is unpleasant to the ear.

    If you are an actual audiophile, you will not be pleased with this speaker. It has a very muddy and muted sound. The highs are terrible you can hardly here the high hat with drums. I immediately returned them and will be getting a higher end speaker. You get what you pay for when it comes to the purchase of speakers.

    I wish I could've listened to these in the store before purchasing them but the display in the store wasn't working. It sounds like your listening through a tunnel.

    Adequate speakers for small room or low volume

    While probably overpriced, these speakers would be adequate for small room or low volume listening, where lots of base is not needed.

    I got this for half the price i.e around 130 and therefore do not regret buying it. sure you would find better products at full price..
