Excerpt: Wanted to add a set of floor standing speakers to my system without taking up whole lot of room. I already had a pair of Sony B1000 Book Shelf Speakers and these were a great addition. They fill the room up with clear rich sound and a full bass. Shipping was carefully packed and arrived a full day ahead of schedule.
Excerpt: Other reveiwers have commented on this models lack of clarity and lack of bass.My experiments in A/B speaker tests,against Yamaha,Technics and Bose speakers show that this is not true.I was surprised how good the bass was for a 8 inch woofer.Clarity could be a bit better,but,it was no worse than a Technics 3way,a Bose interaudio,2way,and a Bose 2way 201,both with 6 inch woofers.It was first place in bass.
Excerpt: I'm sure you can find better speakers, but probably not for the price. I owned a pair of Sony bookshelf speakers that I was very happy with for the past 20 years. They were great! These are even better. I am not an audiophile, but they produce clear sounds from the upper registers to the low without the need of an extra sub-woofer and I can get lost in the music without breaking the budget.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Price, Sturdy
A great upgrade from the SS-B1000s, delivers solid bass.

Summary: These are awesome! Best bang for your buck. I bought these to replace the SS-B1000 Bookshelf speakers I used as my front speakers. I plan to eventually another pair of these to replace the SS-B1000s I use as surround speakers.
Excerpt: Nice speakers for a stereo or home entertainment system. I use my for a stereo setup as primary speakers and very satisfied with the sound. No need for a subwoofer with these - plenty of bass, good highs, not bad on midrange. Overall a good bargain and nice quality product from Sony.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Quality Mounting Hardware, Sturdy
Summary: This type of speaker, in some form or another has been around for a long time. I remember years ago I had a pair of Yamaha speakers that were almost identical except they were front ported. What they both shared in common was a very basic cabinet with budget parts, connectors and drivers. And no crossover. That's right, these speakers only have a couple of basic cap's, but no actual crossover section.
