Summary: This speaker has big speaker sound in a bookshelf package. The bass is adequate, but the strength of the speakers is it's ability to give midrange and treble as a big speaker would. Would recommend for those not looking to spend a bundle and still get great overall sound. The only confusing part is that you are only purchasing 1 speaker and not a pair, which caused some delay in evaluating this speaker, since I had to order a 2nd.
Summary: These speakers are just great!!! Sound quality, design, size. Serwin Vegas have been my speakers for the pas 13 years. I had an old pair AT-8, and one of them had foam ripped. But still sound quality is the same. I got lazy to re build the foam, and got CLS-6. Oh my and don't regret for a minute. As for the overstock folks, they're great... Service, prices... Will definetely be doing my future purchases...
Summary: I didn't noticed the pair of Boston Acoustics bookshelf speakers which were priced less than this single bookshelf speaker. Hence, the 3 star rating. Otherwise, I think both brands deliver good sound. One caveat about this speaker is it requires "banana clips" for input which I had no clue about so I took the manual to my local music store to have them look at it. That's when I found out they're called "banana clips".
Summary: I am very, very happy with the Cerwin Vega CLS-6 speakers I recently got. I still had the big old speakers from 20+ years ago but wanted something smaller. I read many reviews on the 'net for different brands of bookshelf size speakers and based on the reviews, decided on these. I'm no audiophile but I'm impressed as heck at the quality of the sound. Even though they're a lot smaller than my old speakers, they sound MUCH better, especially when watching DVDs.
Summary: Sure, there are better speakers, but for the price, you can't do better. Cerwin Vega makes excellent equipment. If you are putting these in a mid-size room, don't worry about power, they produce a great sound. Their heavy cabinets give a big, warm sound. BTW, I checked the Cervin Vega site and these same speakers sell for much more when ordered directly from the company...
Summary: I studied bookshelf speakers sometime before purchasing two of these. They are well built with no junky plastic cases. The sound is outstanding and I am well pleased with the sound performance. You can crank up the amplifier and the speakers do not distort or get saturated. I believe the technology used in the tweeter and woofer are state of the art. I am a techno nut so I check these things. You will be pleased with these should you choose to purchase.
Summary: These little speakers are simply incredible. Built like a tank, heavy, and sweet sounding. You could pay three times as much for other speakers, and not get a better made/sounding speaker. Smooth, deep bass.. accurate midrange, and shrill free treble makes these Baby Vegas a joy to listen to. Highly recommended! Cerwin Vega and Overstock.com have done it again! Thanks!!!
