Summary: Sony usually makes a good product, and these are definately a quality build for the price. I regret to say that my experience this time around was not a pleasant one, however. I had to order them a second time because the first shipment got lost or misplaced, which amazon was quick to take care of that for me and very helpful.
Summary: I did not want a full 5 channel system for my new Bravia 55" LED, and got one of the new Sony 2-channel recievers instead. I was looking for something to work with this small reciever to round-out my Bravia LED and the small amp. These are excellent speakers for the price. Lots of mid and highs, the bottom isnt as good as I was hoping, but certainly not bad for the size of drivers and enclosure.
I give a 10 on the quality sound but a 4 on the plastic legs.

Summary: I have never been a big fan with Sony's stereo speakers in the past. I have 14 Floor standing speakers, 2 Bose 301's and 2 JBLs Book shelves. (now 16 standing speakrs) I give Sony Corporation and the workers a thumbs up and 5 stars in making a speaker that has it all. The Highs, the mid and the low sounds that I hear from these Sony Ss-7000 Floor standing speakers.
Summary: I bought these speakers after doing a long search on budget floor standing speakers that sounded good but that weren't too expensive as I was on a budget. I was also looking at Polk Monitor 70 & Polk TSi 400 But those are around $400 to $580 each. So after many hours of research through the web I decided to get these. [...] Anyways when I received them they came in a huge box, I didn't expect them to be this tall yet slim (which is good).
Summary: I am using these speakers with the SS-CN5000 and SS-B1000 in a 5.1 surround setup. These speakers are the workhorse of the group, handling handling a vast range with precision and clarity. They produce a powerful low bass, down at 35 Hz they hit lower notes with more power than many of the cheaper subwoofers out there. And its clear why: 4 way crossover means each driver is handling its own range, the 8" mica reinforced cone is practically a subwoofer on its own.
Summary: First off, if you're using these as front mains, go ahead and set full range to on. They sound better than setting the crossover to 40hz. Secondly, if you're on carpet, you should do what I did: Rest these things on square boards 11x12 inch, and place 2 inch screws at each corner. The result is a plat form that isolates the bass and keeps it from transferring into the carpet. Once you put isolation pads on these things, they sound great.
Summary: The high frequencies and mid range are very good. The base is very boomy. I bought a yamaha sws 315 powered sub woofer to help. Turned down the base control on the amp going to the Sonys. They sounded better. However, the Yamaha sub is also boomy and did not reproduce low freq. very well. I keep adjusting the frequency threshold and volume on the Yamaha trying to get a good ballance.
Summary: I was eskeptical at first. i didn't want to spend more than 800 for a pair of front speaker. I had in mind Klipts,polk,whartdale,mirage,energy n B&W at last. but after looking n seeing so many good reviews for the F7000 I thought i gave then a try n save $ And just return them if i don't like them. I was blown away by the clr sound n power!
Pros: They sound great!! great finish looking without the grills
Cons: They sound just as good as the 500 to 1000 ea price brands
