Summary: This set is pure luxury in a box. These speakers are built to perform and amaze. You can't go wrong with 240 watts power! The only issue is that the speaker cone fell off when it was dropped 1 foot off the ground. But they still work and show little damage on the outer case
GREAT little speaker IF you modify the crummy original crossover!!

Summary: I found two pair of these at a local thrift shop and paid $20 for both pair. I read the reviews online and many reviewers commented on the 'hole' in the resonse in the midrange, vocals, etc. I have to say that I agree with the reviewers about the muddy middle.
Summary: These are great little speakers. They have a small footprint and have a great balanced sound. They work great as stand alone speakers. I'm not sure I would pick them for a surround sound environment, but if you need stand-alone speakers with a small footprint, these are great.
Summary: I'm using these as the surround speakers (with larger Sony speakers in the front) and couldn't be more pleased. Sound is crisp and clean, and bass response is surprisingly good. My only quibble: no provisions for mounting (mine are on the wall, and I had to drill and pray).
Summary: I bought these to attach to my laptop and sit on my desktop, small size was important. The fractional watt headphone amplifier in the laptop is enough to push these to reasonable volume. A visit to radio shack and some quick soldering produced a cable.
Summary: These little speakers are quite amazing. I'm powering them with a 10 watt per channel integrated vacuum tube amp. Obviously, due to their size, they should be used along with a subwoofer. They weren't designed to blow out windows.....
Summary: These speakers sound very good for the price. I have heard lots of $200 speakers that don't sound much better. The only difference in the speakers is the bass response. The sony speakers have almost no low response. You hardly get any bass. But for me that is not a problume for me though.
Summary: These are great soundings little speakers for the price. The frequency range sounds fairly flat through it's advertised range 80MHZ-50KHZ. The highs don't roll off at 20KHZ like some cheaper speakers due to the extended range tweeter.
