Summary: Looking for great sounding speakers and don't want to skip the mortgage payment? Get these speakers. Very clear, crisp sound. Classical music sounds incredibly real and alive (like the violin is playing right in front of you), so do soccer games (you'll feel you're in the stadium). I don't even have any other speakers (not even a subwoofer), these are it, and my living room is huge with high ceiling. These fill the whole room with sound.
Summary: I purchased these (and the SS-B3000s) to replace some pioneer speakers I just purchased (which i returned). These speakers produce clear, loud sound. They have a large body, but they manage to retain a high build quality feel. Putting these in a 10' x 11' bedroom isn't the ideal location, but I bought them with the future in mind. They capture a large range of sound. I'm currently running them in stereo, and plan on running them in 5.1.
Summary: The Sony SS-F7000 is an encellent speaker. The only problem I see with it and my reason for 4 stars is, the speaker grill and legs have a tendency to break. Nevertheless, good sound, good quality, and overall, a good product.
Summary: Work well, produce good sound using a harmon kardon 3490 stereo amp. The cover on one speaker, and one of the plastic feet on the other speaker were broken upon arrival due to poor packaging. They still work fine, but are far too large to be worth shipping back over trivial reasons like aesthetic damage.
