Summary: I bought a pair of these from Walmart about 9 years ago to replace a pair of 38 year old RCA speakers of about the same size. I was impressed from the moment I hooked them up. Nice crisp, clean sound at reasonable volume, and very little distortion at high volume. They're too big for a bookshelf in my opinion, I use them standing on the floor. I can't remember what I paid for them, but I've gotten my money's worth out of them many times over.
Summary: Recently I acquired a pair of these speakers from a thrift store for occasional low volume use in my bedroom. I was drawn to them primarily because the cabinets are decent looking and the size is perfect for a set of stands I own. At the time I assumed that I would most likely be removing at least some of the drivers and replacing them with ones more to my liking. Yes, you can do this if you have lots of drivers to experiment with and know what you're doing.
Summary: I wouldn't exactly classify these as bookshelf speakers personally (check the dimensions) but they are compact when comparing them to older towers and some larger floor models. Awesome budget speakers, consumer reports gave them great reviews for sound which is why I bought them and I am not dissapointed. Can't go wrong unless you're looking for something smaller!
Summary: These bookshelf speakers sit up high in my kitchen and fill a big room with clean, clear sound. The best of the old school - basic stereo speakers that pump out music well beyond their low price.
Summary: I am driving these with a vintage Kenwood 40wpc amp. I don't think you can get speakers, that will fit on a bookshelf, any better than these. They are as good as (maybe better?) my custom built, 3rd order crossover, speakers. If you compare them side by side with the high end speakers, and want accurate reproduction, with low distortion, these will not only save you money, but will give you a better system. You don't need a boom-box (subwoofer) with these.
Summary: These speakers were purchased with a little hesitation from the reviews. I have them attached to my receiver and they are great for my office space. Great sound, reasonable price. I wuld highly reccomend this product.
Summary: I was in the market for a pair of bookshelf speakers to replace an older pair of JBL bookshelf speakers. Long term I would like to invest in refinishing my basement and setting up a high-end surround system. But, for now, I only wanted to spend $100 or less for good quality. I found just that in the Sony SS-MB350H bookshelf speakers. I am no audio expert, I only know what sounds good to me and have been very please with the performance of these speakers.
Summary: I was certainly surprised by the quality when considering the price. A decent amount of bass is produced from the woofer. At high volume the sound is easily distorted in the woofer. These speakers do not handle much more than 100 watts and will blow out easily after extended use at high volume. I used mine at my work in a warehouse and they lasted about two months before blowing out.
Summary: 5 star rating for value. I'm not an audiophile or anywhere close to one so I can't compare to higer end speakers. These inexpensive speakers sound good and I feel were a very good value. I'm certain that I would have heard a difference betwen these and top of the line speakers if they were in a side-by-side comparison, but these sounded good to me. They were to replace 20 year old speakers on a 20 year old receiver. Just what the doctor ordered. Great value.
