Summary: These sound great and are way better than anything at this price point. I have them hooked up to a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon turntable with Pro-Ject amp and pre amp. They are very well made and very solid. Way better sound and construction than anything at this price.
Pros: Solid construction. Excellent sound for the price. Sound way bigger than they are.
Summary: I was going back and forth between getting the Powered Speakers or Passive P4's. Decided on the P4's paired to a new Griffin Twenty Bluetooth Digital Audio Amplifier and Airport Express. This combo has worked out incredibly well. Very happy with the end result.
Summary: Speakers are great. I am playing them mostly at low and moderate volume with pleasing results. Very nice sound at high volume also, easily fill the 180' sq room they are in. Adding a subwoofer will of course add more depth, I plan to do this very soon.
Pros: Great range and sound reproduction even at low volume
Cons: For 'bookshelf speakers,' really no shortcomings
Summary: These are simply the best speakers at this price range. The bamboo looks fantastic but isn't necessary for good sound quality so save the money unless you really want the aesthetic. For those who are looking for bass: These have excellent, even bass reproduction from 58 Hz and up.
Summary: Very compact desktop speakers, The sound is very clear with good imaging. The bamboo looks very elegant and the sound is fairly rich but I did add a Sub which rounded this out nicely. Great set up for smaller listening area.
WAY better than one might expect for $250 speakers

Summary: These speakers are great. These speakers, paired with the NAD 7050 and a set of Mediabridge ULTRA Series Speaker Cables yield a great system for a very, very reasonable price, < $1300. I'm very happy with this system.
Summary: I have owned these for 2 years now. Last night I was really struck by how wonderful they sound I decided to write this review. The separation and soundstage these deliver is wonderful. They are great for computer applications.
Summary: Maybe a couple hundred or so hours playing - Although I don't have any other small speakers to compare these to, these are better than I expected in sound and looks. Takes such a small space - just what I was looking for, for my new added micro system. Seems good quality.
