Summary: I am using these as my front speakers in my 7.2 setup in my living room. I purchase a new entertainment center that did not allow enough room for my klipsch floor standing speakers. I debated much larger bookshelf speakers, but for a living room these have plenty of sound for movies and music. If you were using them as stand alone you may want to go larger, but when accompanied by my 12" sub and surround, they are more than sufficient .
Summary: I got these to not too long ago and I am very pleased with their performance. They are being driven by a SONY STR - DN840 and they are awesome. Music, movies, whatever... the sound is fantastic. Although these don't have huge drivers, they do have quite decent bass response when used without a subwoofer. I would totally buy these again.
Pros: Solid construction, excellent sound at all volume levels, decent bass response.
