Great Stereo Speakers

Summary: Use for 2.0 TV and music (vinyl and high quality digital). Well balanced. Clear treble and mids. Surprising bass for a speaker of this size. Very good looking. Great quality at this price (around $350).
Summary: I just purchased these and can honestly say these are great speakers. The bass is tight and vocals make it sound like you're in the room with the singer. Very lifelike with no weaknesses whatsoever. Well constructed speaker as well with ability to biwire.
Summary: I previous used the BX-1 speakers for my fronts. I replaced them with these when I went to a 7.1 configuration (BX-2 front, BX-Center, BX-FX surround, and BX-1 rear with an REL subwoofer). I had a need to wall-mount this speakers due to the setup of my room. Since the BX-2's do not have a mounting bracket like the BX-1 speakers, I used the VideoSecu Side Clamping Speaker Mounting Bracket with Tilt and Swivel for Large Surrounding Sound Speakers MS56B 3LH wall mounts with...
Summary: Accidentally ordered Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 and these at the same time, so I had a chance to compare the two. These have better low end, which is not a big deal if you have a decent subwoofer, as you should with bookshelf speakers. You can listen to these without a subwoofer if you choose, and the bass goes deep enough to make you feel like you aren't missing out on much without a subwoofer, but of course it is better to have a sub.
Summary: I mistakenly ordered two sets of speakers: these and the Wharfedale Diamond 10.1. I expected to like these more based on many reviews comparing the two, but actually the Diamond 10.1 are more flat and natural when positioned about 3 or 4 feet away. This is a great set of speakers, but the one star I've taken off is due to its exaggerated highs.
Summary: Extremely fine fidelity for such small speakers. Everything from the soundtrack to "Superman" to a Beethoven symphony to delicate vocals comes thru crystal clear. Worth the price. I use these for tv speakers as well.
Summary: Wow! I could not be happier with these speakers. I had some large vintage Sansui speakers before I got these, and was never fully satisfied with the sound. I bought these and hooked them up, and the treble, mid-range, and bass were more detailed and powerful from the Bronze BX-2s than from the Sansui speakers. I am especially blown away by the quality of the bass that comes from these speakers. It's tight and punchy but not boomy at all.
Great speakers so far after a month with no problems

Summary: Great speakers so far after a month with no problems. Look better than pictures would lead you to believe. Can easily be put anywhere because of the front port. Take well to my yamaha R-S500 reciever. I normally try to keep them untuned, but they tune well if you want to do that. A subwoofer however would help these alot untuned.
