Summary: I bought these as surrounds to mate with paradigm studio 60's v5 mains. I am very pleased with their performance. The rosewood finish also matches the 60's and are very well made. They are beautifully finished. They have the clarity and punchy bass my old surrounds were lacking. These speakers can also perform as bookshelfs in a modest system. At some point, I will try them as a stereo pair. If you want to wall mount them, they have the threaded inserts built in.
