    Big quality sound for small bucks

    Pound for pound and dollar for dollar it would be difficult to get more quality sound reproduction from a bookshelf speaker. Bass is sufficient to eliminate the need for a subwoofer for most music reproduction. Frankly, for $130 per pair, this is a great buy for a music lover on a budget. Leave something left over for the rent or Mercedes payment.

    Decent speakers for the money

    I purchased these speakers using a price match to an online competitor and overall I was content with the sound, but not quite happy. I noticed right away that these speakers are 6Ohm vs. 8ohm which means they might require a bit more power than most speakers. I paired these with the matching center speaker, a set of pioneer surrounds, and a pioneer 7.1 receiver (although using a 5.1 setup), all in a relatively small room. The speakers output decent sound, but are overall tonally flat. I might even say lifeless. That'sn't necessarily a bad thing as some people don't want their sound output colored by the speakers. However, I prefer a more "bright" sound. Also, it proved difficult to get appropriate volume levels out of these speakers. That could be a function of receiver settings, although I did set the speaker output to 6Ohm. Lastly, the speakers sound great at the midrange but seem to roll off quickly in the upper and lower ranges. I wouldn't call the lower end muddy, but there isn't the tightness and definition I was hoping for. I returned these and purchased the Polk Monitor 40s which have a higher sensitivity, more range, a slightly brighter sound and cost roughly the same. I would recommend these to someone who is looking for a excellent midrange speaker at a good price that doesn't color the audio output. If you have the higher and lower ranges covered well via other means, these are a great addition to a home theater for a good price. However, if you're looking for a set with full dynamic range and excellent sound quality throughout, I would look elsewhere.
