So good they reveal the limits of many other audio factors.

Summary: These speakers are fantastic. After using crummy desktop speakers for years, getting a pair of these simply changes the entire experience of listening to music at a computer desk. In fact, they are so good, you'll begin to hear the limits of a lot of digital music formats. 128kbps mp3's ??
Summary: FYI This doesn't come with airplay or bluetooth as advertised!!! There are cheap and effective bluetooth adapters out there though, so I'm not too peeved by it. Sounds GREAT though. Loud or soft, everything sounds really good out of these.

Summary: Excellent speakers. I've had these speakers for about a year now. The speakers sound really crisp with great imagining. They look cool in flat black. They are solid, big and bulky They lack mid range compared to Revel Performa3 f208s Vocals are super crisp.
I dont think the break in is complete yet but they are 100% better from where they started

Summary: The break in period is no joke with these speakers. When I first pulled them out of the box and got them set up it was VERY disappointing - very flat, no staging and no life in general. I plugged my iPhone in and walked away for about 5 hours.
Summary: These look great and sound very good. They produce lots of dynamics and volume for such small speakers; the built-in amp is adequately powered, and I had to "try" in order to drive it into clipping. I use them for a TV mainly, though other sources sound very good through them too.
Summary: Absolutely outstanding sound. Before buying I read almost every review here on Amazon, and I agree with "the consensus." These are not "computer speakers" but I use them that way, to my daily delight. The bass is tight and sufficient. Sweet midrange.
Summary: I'll leave it to the audiophiles to explain all of the specs for you. I would prefer to give the speakers a 4.5/5 but its not allowed. The speakers look great and most importantly sound great. My only gripes are the supplied cables.
Summary: The only reason this doesn't have 5 stars is because my A5's have died on me, twice now. They originally lasted 2 years before getting a harsh crumbling sound from the speakers. They deemed them not repairable and sent me a new pair free of charge(after I had to pay for return shipping).
Summary: I love the speakers. I wish I had bought them years ago. It's one of those things like when you first switch to HD from SD TV - you don't think it would make a difference but it does. I mean, it's just a TV show, how important could the picture quality be?
Summary: Great sound for movies and music! Sometimes they make feedback noise but not too often and I think that has to do with the way my entertainment system is set up. I would buy these again without hesitation. I would like it even more if there were digital input for my HDTV.
