BA delivers again with this true and full-sounding speaker
6 September 2014
Summary: I've always loved BA speakers. I hadn't purchased any in a while, and my biggest concern in purchasing these was the low-end. Obviously music and entertainment of today uses lower frequencies far more than 15-20 years ago. After using these for a week (using them primarily for Music, but also TV and Movies) these speakers totally deliver, and well beyond my expectations.
Summary: These are not high end speakers but they produce good sound quality when used in a balanced set of surround speakers. I believe that a good ($300) center channel speaker and properly adjusted sub-woofer make the difference. I do not think you will find a better value in floor mounted speakers.
Summary: A pair of these speakers produce clear mid-range, a splendid bass drum, and are very good for piano/cello works as well as small ensembles. Their ability to handle a full orchestra is less convincing: the violin section in particular suffers an identity loss. Whereas the cellos and basses are quite realistic, the violins sound like recorded violins, not real ones.
Summary: I have always liked Boston speakers. I have them in my car and my home and, incidentaly, they merry up very nicely with polk speakers as well. The Polks give good low end and the Bostons give tight mid and high end. I upgraded to these speakers for the front channel of my home theater along with 5 1/4 inch Bostons for my rear channel and a dual Boston 6 1/2 inch center. What can be said about Boston?
Summary: These speakers certainly blew me off when I first hooked them to my tiny Nad 310. The bass is really impressive, the mid ranges are right on spot and the highs are crystal clear. I seriously love the sound and versatility these speakers provide, from classical and jazz to rock and pop they can handle it. And even more lovable is the fact they can be perfectly moved by a good 25watt hi fi amp like the Nad 310. Must buy!
