Excerpt: I am by no means an "expert" or "audiophile," but for a casual listener, I believe that these speakers are an excellent buy. Maybe, with a chance to compare these with others in the same price range side-by-side I might have a different conclusion, but in my area the local audio stores have only premium ($1K & up) speakers in their listening rooms.
Pros: Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Good Speaker for the price I paid ($99.00) in 2009. A lot of the great reviews came at that time. However, make no mistake these are not worth the current $200.00 price tag. I bought the Sony 7000 models for that price in 2010. These are same speakers as they were 5 years ago. Nothing has changed. I have since upgraded to Polks which surprised me at how much better they were than these Sonys.
Excerpt: My sound system was older and I worried that newer speakers would not be compatible. Prior to water damage, my old Sony tower speakers had great sound.The Sony SS-F5000 speaker system exceeds my expectations. The quality of sound is actually better than the original speaker system. They look great and I have had several friends comment on well they fit in with my decor.
Summary: These have a good range from high to the upper low end (bass). I find most speaker fall off at lower volumes, such as below normal speaking level. These do not seem to lose much at the high and mid range and the base is decent at lower volume. For the price and sound, these are a good value. If you are into loud, these only get better.
Excerpt: This is my second year having them. I just got into DJing a little and all of a sudden my friend asked me if I wanted to DJ for his banger at his apt. I have a Yamaha RX-V373 receiver with Yamaha's 10in powered sub and these babies. I must say, I'm impressed. I've had the Rx on MAX for 3 strait hours 2x this year and these speakers preform like they're only at half volume.
Pros: Amazing Sound, Diverse, Durable, Great quality
Excerpt: Ordered speakers for my new 70 inch Sony TV / receiver system. The order was easy to place and arrived quickly. Speakers were easy to set up with banana plugs. Speakers sound and look great. A great bargain for the those looking for good tv speakers.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality
