Summary: I got these for a secondary system and they will find their way to surrounds in a HT. Comparisons with my personal reference system: DIY speaker kit from Madisound using Seas Prestige drivers.

Summary: I would consider myself a utilitarian audiophile, or in other words cheap :) When I was younger, "good" sound required a healthy dose of bass. Usually I could be satisfied with a decent pair of Sony bookshelf units that were weak in the mids and strong in the low end.
Summary: Such clean, clear, crisp sound! I have a small apartment and these are perfect for sound. I can turn them up and not worry about bass reverb shaking the building while not skimping on clean bass sound. Whoever needs a bass booster doesn't really appreciate sound, in my opinion.
Summary: The low reviews on this speaker don't make any sense. These are not in the same league as $400/each Def. Tech. speakers, and anyone that can't determine the size from the provided specs deserves what they get.
Summary: I've been collecting Hi-Fi since the mid 70's. I haven't owned Ultra High-End due to the high cost, although I have listened to some pretty expensive gear, Mark Levinson, Krell, Martin Logan, B&W, etc. I still love my A27 with first generation Infinity EMITs.
Summary: I used this to replace a Sony center speaker for a "home theater in a box" kit and it improves dialogue immensely. It doesn't destroy sound with bass but produces a clear, crisp sound that is great for an action movie, tv show or even just listening to music.
Summary: This is a step up for me from small computer speakers and monitor built-in speakers, yes, I've been listening from those my entire pc life until now! When they came there were no accessories at all so I have no idea how to connect them to my computer. Then I learned.
I have concluded that my speakers are significantly better then the more expensive audio equipment

Summary: I am an audiophile. The idea that I would ever own a Pioneer product is laughable. My last set of speakers were handmade and cost about $2,000. I have previously owned Dahlquist DQ 10s, Magnaplanars and through the years, other $2-15,000 speakers.
Summary: I could not believe my ears when I first played with these speakers. My only home theater equipment I had before I got these speakers were a Sony 7.1 receiver I got from NewEgg for $150, and a set of Polk Monitor 45B bookshelf speakers for $200.
