Summary: I just purchased these speakers after trying out countless pairs of bookshelf speakers over the last 3 years. I auditioned everything from (other Boston Acoustic models), Polks (mostly my favorites) such as Tsi100, 200, as well as the RTI A1.
Summary: This speaker is sold individually, don't make the same mistake I made :) Over a decade, I have gone through numerous bookshelves, most of them considered affordable. -Previously owned bookshelves- JBL 4312M (made in Japan, very beautiful case) Cambridge Audio S30 Monitor Audio Bronze BR2 B&W 683S2...
You do not regret the purchase. Good music without spending too much

Summary: I'm not an audiophile - almost -, but I listen to music HI FI forever. After a period of neglect due to the advent of digital readers, I felt the need to return to old habits. I took a good amp, phono, cd player is.
Summary: I liked the looks of the speakers and they didn't disappoint in person. Fills my room (small though 18ftx12ft) with ease. I've plugged them into a Marantz NR1403 receiver connected with HDMI to my HTPC running ArchLinux.
Summary: The purpose for these speakers is solely for listening to "music" via my 2-channel Receiver. So, home theater fans, this review is not for you. I listen to all kinds of music; mostly Classical, and some Pop, Rock and Jazz.
Pros: Sounds quality is nature and very detail. Nice looking, with or without the front grille. Like the magnetic front grille, great feature. Piano black finish increases its value, looks great and blend in well. Small size.
Summary: These speakers are at a good value to performance point. In order to get something substantially better on the comercial side, you will doube the price. I am running them on as a 2.1 system with the Boson ASW 650 powered subwoofer and this seems to be a good match for my larger room.
Pros: Looks Good sound Great midrange
Cons: A bit muddy in the low mid region. High end needed 3 - 5 dB boost over 12k in my application to stand out a little better. Made in China :(
Summary: good bookshelf speakers....solid construction and good sound quality....not surround sound, but good sound. BA has always delivered good quality products...I've owned other speakers from them for many years and would recommend them
