Summary: I am very satisfied with these speakers. They have a very clear sound when compared to lesser value speakers. The bass is pretty punchy when set up for it and the highs are very crisp and clear, similar to that of a warmer, softer version of horn tweeters. These speakers sound very good with my Yamaha Aventage RX-A830 receiver. They can take a lot more power than I expected before they distort. I would highly recommend these speakers.
Summary: It's been 35 years since I bought my 901s. I still be using them but the equalizer gave up the ghost. Recently, I picked up a portable Bose speaker for my mp3 and loved the sound quality. So, I bought the 301s on reputation. I have not been disappointed. Not only is the sound reproduction excellent, I also am a big fan of the direct/reflective aspect of the speakers. I highly recommend these speakers.
