Excerpt: I use the speakers in a carpeted living room with a fair amount of furniture. If you are sitting with both speakers pointed directly at you they sound great. But if you stand up or walk around the room they lose much of their clarity. If you want to fill a room with crisp sound these may fall a bit short.
Summary: I recently wanted to upgrade my Polk R30s to get a larger sound stage so I purchased the Sony SS-F7000. After replacing them I felt like the new speakers were actually worse than my $100 pair Polks. So I hooked them both to my receiver for an A-B test (Panasonic SA-XR57 with Dual Amp configuration, subwoofer disabled, large configuration, and stereo test. Its known for its high end clarity due to being a digital amp).
Summary: Great speaker. However if your a true classical music audiophile, you could benefit from a subwoofer in your system to fill out the very low resonant frequencies not merely of the bass, but the cellos as well. I don't fault these woofers. They give excellent response to the high end of the low end. They just work best with a woofer that covers the really low end better. Now a message for Sony if they monitor these customer reviews. Please improve the packaging.
Excerpt: I have these as part of complete Sony 7.1 A/V system and they compare as equals with Polk, Klipsch, and other brands that cost 3 to 4 times as much. I am completely satisfied and have no negative comments.
Summary: Mine was damaged in shipping, one of the feet broke off and scratched up the finish on the cabinet. Plugged it in anyway and created an RMA for it, since I couldn't locate the part on Sony's parts site, and I honestly didn't pay for a new product to come damaged. Amazon's return process seems easy enough though.
The best bang for your buck you will not be upset at all period!!!

Summary: These Sony ssf-7000 floor standing speakers are awesome beleave me I have these hooked up with high performance speakers side by side that cost me 800$ yamaha's and these 200$ Sony's pound punch for punch with the yamaha's full blast high's Mid's and low's I wish I just got 4 Sony ssf-7000's for half the price trust me you will be more then happy with these speakers bottom line like I said biggest Bang for your Buck PERIOD!!!
Summary: These speakers are amazing. Sound great, great range overall. Granted, they may not be Bose or Klipsch, but for $188 (what I paid on ebay, shipping INCLUDED)they are fantastic. Look at the reviews all over the web...the 4-5 star ratings are completely accurate. I added these to a 5.1 setup so that I could have true 7.1 surround. Just watched Avatar on Blueray and almost passed out from the intensity, LOL The Sony subwoofer is also amazing for ~$135!
Summary: Using in a large room (17x30) in a home theater system and these speakers fill the room with floor shaking sound. Was quite impressed. Nice highs and deep rich lows all for around 200 shipped. It would be senseless to spend double or tripple the price. Cant beat it. A+ Amazon! Received in 2 days!
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.
