Summary: I bought a set of these after much deliberation with its aesthetic qualities being the deciding factor for me. The lead connecting the speakers is long, so if one were to place them at opposite ends of a bookshelf then it is possible to do so.
Summary: I ordered these speakers on Saturday, with the free delivery option, and they arrived two days later on Monday, so thumbs up there! The speakers look very nice and are able to produce a good volume - more than enough for just me listening in my uni room on my own, or for parties here.
Summary: I really like these speakers. The look good, they have a very nice, rich sound to them. As another reviewer said, they seem to have very loud mid tones, so they sound quite mushy with not much treble crispness when first out of the box.
Summary: Can't argue with the price on these speaker. They look great and have a solid build. The Bass is very good considering the price. The treble/mids sound like they get lost in bass and loses some clarity and can sound a little bit muddy, but that's just me being really picky.
Summary: I play guitar in a rock band and like having music around the house. These speakers are great, I've got 4 sets of them. Great sound - loud enough for rocking out to and look decent enough for my wife not to mind.
Summary: I bought these speakers in May last year, and about a month ago they started clipping/distorting with certain frequencies. I tested my soundcard with headphones and had no such trouble. Sounded good to start with but now they're pretty horrible.
