Boston Acoustics CS26 II BEST SMALL SPEAKER MONEY CAN BUY
2 November 2014
Summary: these speakers are incredible..they rock at all levels and for a small speaker the bass is amazing . I read alot of reviews and these speakers the boston acoustics cs26 seriesII were rated very high. I shopped online and then on ebay I bid and ended up owning them for a super price. When I hooked them up I could not believe the quality sound coming from them.
Summary: I have been using this speaker for 3 years. I usually put them on my desk and listen them as I work. For close listening, they are very good. Clear. It provides wide stage. I appreciate quality sounds and this speaker never disappointed me so far.
Summary: First note: these do not come in a pair. I see that asked a lot. I still think they are truly worth every dollar. I have an old circa 2003 Sony receiver running these with a bluetooth adapter attached. The sound that comes off these are very loud and not thin at all. I will say there is some lacking on the low end, but again, i can't dock a star for that: they are bookshelf speakers. If you give a little room on the backside of the speaker you get better depth.
Summary: We use these in our exercise room connected to a Parasound amp and tuner, DVD and Samsung LED TV. All I can say is they sound good and there is no disappointment on this purchase. The price was right too!
Summary: Overall, I enjoy these speakers. The bass can go quite deep considering the relatively small size of these speakers. It seems, however, that most of the low bass is coming out of the rear duct, which means that it's very important to keep enough distance (about 12 inches) between the back of these speakers and the wall.
Summary: Is this the perfect bookshelf speaker? Small size, great bass, midrange and treble response, efficient ( I use a 20wpc receiver), but great sound played loudly or quietly. Accurate and musical. Remarkable transient response. Solid, rigid cabinet with handsome stained black finish. Sounds like speakers made by the famous New England companies (Polk, Advent, EPI) in their heyday.
