    You get what you pay for

    Music

    I am a Home Studio geek intent on finding the best gear at a reasonable price. My main speaker monitors are Tannoys that have a great overall range for mixing, Good lows, mids, highs. They were around $400.00 for the pair. I thought I would get some standard stereo speakers to check out my mix on my stereo. Yamaha has always been admirable in my book. However these speakers prove the old adage, "you get what you pay for". The speakers had no bottom end at all, even when I tried to e.q. them with various music cds,. I took the 8 inch driver out and the quality was shameful. I know it had to have weighed less than a pound. In Yamaha's defense, I know they make great studio monitors as well as good, more expensive, stereo speakers. I can't say that about these. These will serve as a good project by replacing the speakers with better quality speakers and serve as a good lesson in 3 way design. The cabinets look very good.

    Excellent speakers for the money

    These speakers are perfect for my surround system and I use them for my primary rear speakers. I am thinking of getting another pair for my surround back speakers to compliment my Yamaha system to fully utilize my 7.1 Digital Dolby Prologic IIz decoder. Although I have JBL front speakers and a Sony center speaker, the quality of the Yamaha speakers is perfect and these speakers are the perfect add-on. They have a more robust sound than the smaller rear surround speakers I've tested. I may even get a third pair for my other receiver. For the money and for a Yamaha brand, this item cannot be beat.

    These speakers are probably a bit large for bookshelves, but they send out such good sound that it is worth it to build or buy some stands to set them on. It would be easy to gush on about how great they sound for a wide variety of music (and as a bonus, they work really well as home theatre speakers), but reading about them is not the same as hearing them. They are well worth buying and listening for your own enjoyment.

    These were a great price from a quality manufacturer so I thought I would give them a try. The cabinets are made of a thin material and the light weight tells me the speaker magnets are not substantial. Still the sound is clean and with a decent subwoofer it works as a satellite speaker. It looks good, too.

    A better than average 3way bookshelf speaker for the price. A little lacking in the lower and high ranges; but, overall a good speaker for the average listener. Yamaha always has a clear pure sound, and this speaker delivers on that legacy.

    Bought these for the old stereo in the spare room. They have a nice crisp sound that more then fills the room. A great sound for the price. I have been very happy with Yamaha products.

    There may be better quality speakers out there but you'll pay three or four times more for a pair. For the price these speakers can't be beat
