Summary: Nice speaker. Been discontinued for a while. Boston Acoustics apparently sold the last of them for $60 each on their own site. I got mine for $30 a couple months ago. Not really worth any more than that compared to what else is out there. The only reason they'd be priced higher is because they're really hard to find now.
Summary: Before purchasing these speakers, I listened to about 20 sets of bookshelf speakers (including the Boston Acoustics HS60) at various local electronics stores. Many of the bookshelf speakers that I observed were very tinny, did not have much bass at all, and couldn't handle a lot of power (they started sounding distorted after the volume was turned up). Some of the others that I heard were made by JBL, Sony, Bose, Polk, and Insignia ranging in price from $50 to $330 each.
Summary: My old KLH stereo speakers still sound great (I still get compliments from my guests on their excellent sound), but they are just so big, take up a lot of real estate in my house, and are very outdated in appearance- big and boxy with a cabinet covered in faux oak wood-looking "wall paper." So, I ran around town today looking for bookshelf speakers to free up some space on my floor and get with the 21st Century.
