Pros: I got these on sale and I have to say I'm very impressed. They were just what I needed for a 20 x 24 room.. loud enough but not too loud. Sure some polks can play louder but these don't distort and when my baby is sleeping, I can still listen at a decent volume.
Cons: If you want thumping bass you will need a subwoofer.
Summary: I've owned all of the speakers in the current and past Andrew Jones lines. They are all fair to average at best. Not sure why they get rave reviews. For these bookshelf speakers, priced at $129/pair, I wouldn't buy them. Catch them on sale or just pass all together.
Pros: Decent build quality. Bass pretty good for just 4" woofers.
Cons: 6 Ohm. Inefficient at 85dB. Tweeter is muffled and lacks clarity.
Excerpt: Bought these to go along with the Onkyo TX-8050 receiver. It was a good choice. These are nice sounding speakers but they are not without their faults. Being a ported design you have to watch were you place them. On stands (generally always recommended for bookshelf speakers) is a must.
Excerpt: I connected to my Onkyo TX8050 and I play netowrk music, CD music, USB music, and my TV. I listen to mostly classical music and these speakers replaced my Optimus Pro AV speakers, which were good for the price.
Excerpt: I am pleased with the performance of these speakers. I had a very large pair of old KLH speakers that sounded good, but took a lot of space. My new Andrew Jones speakers take up less that 1/4 of the space and have a much fuller sound.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: Very simple to use and set up bookshelf speakers. Using them with an AudioTechnica AT-LP120USB turntable, TCC TC750LC phono preamp, and Topping Tp30 Mark II amp. I've heard some speakers that cost ten times the amount of the Pioneer SP-BS22-LR that still don't have as rich, distinct, or refined...
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: There's definite MAGIC going on here somewhere. We never dreamed these would sound this fantastic. I really can't add much to what's already been said about these, except this: Everyone who hears them looks around and asks the same question - "Where's the subwoofer?!
