Summary: I received these speakers on time via U.P.S..I was suprised how heavy the speakers are. Look well made and solid. The speaker grills are good looking but very flimsey. (cheaply made) Like others, I had one broken speaker grill. After hooking them up and putting a graphic equalizer in the set up I was very pleased with the results. I had to make a few adjustments to my T.V., subwoofer and equalizer. My other speakers center front and rear surround are JBL brand.
Summary: I was looking for a pair of low distortion, broad band, flat response curve speakers of small size, and I seem to have found it. Encouraged by the available specifications and favorable reviews, I purchased this pair of Sony SSF- 7000 speakers. They arrived in good condition despite the packing box bearing signs of a violent trip. The cabinet is constructed of stout, vibration free, black, perhaps synthetic, mystery wood of moderate grain.
Good Design + Inexpensive Parts + Economies of Scale = Bargain

Summary: Sony isn't known for speakers, and that's to your benefit. If they were, you'd pay 50-75% more and pat yourself on the back for being so discerning. As it is, the SS-F7000 is a notable bargain. There are a lot of really awful tower speakers in this price range, but don't lump Sony in this group.
Summary: I decided to put together a home theater system which is still in the works, so this is my first system but definitely not the first I have been around. Over all I think these are pretty good speakers for the price. They sound good for 4way speakers but as many have said they are slightly lacking in bass but not by a lot. So these are a good choice if you are just starting out or you're on a budget.
Summary: For the price these are perfect for any home. The sound is great and can handle the power I put to them. I got no distortion or cracking from them. Even when my unit was almost at max volume. I would suggest these for anyone. The bass is great for the size of the speakers putting it out.
