Summary: Very good sounding speakers for the money. Full-bodied, rich, and detailed audio. I couldn't believe they were $100! High are crisp and not overbearing. Mids are clear and detailed. Bass is deep and very controlled without boominess. A very respectable speaker that perform well above it's price range...
Summary: Truth is truth. No amount of audio snobbery can deny that these Sonys remind one of models built in 1980 or so, three-way designs with adequate-sized woofers without any need for extra bass. These woofers constantly surprise me, leaving the living room where my old Pioneer HPM-100's supply the bass to my bedroom where the Sony's form the front of a 5.1 system. The subwoofer is barely on, an 8" Yamaha just for effects but in stereo mode the Sonys shine on their own.
Summary: junk speakers with bad high range and bass blockers instead of decent crossovers.Mid range city,yes goes kinda low but not great,you'ld wanna go up to 60 -70 on sub so they don't strain.So whats so good about that? nothing,even at the price u can do better.No way do these compare to Paradigm or even polk,which are better built and sound better.
Summary: The sound from this speaker is deep and accurate. In terms of value, an outstanding buy. Bass response is excellent, midrange is quite smooth, and treble is extended and detailed. This is a large bookshelf speaker - it stands 20 7/8 inches tall. Most bookshelf speakers are smaller; this speaker reminds me of the classic systems of the 1970s, which were often three-way designs - something not seen much these days.
Summary: As can be seen on amazon, etc. these are fantastic speakers. Everything is quite clear, and they have good volume. I've never managed to get the volume on my receiver past about 60%, because it simply hurts too much. Bass is extraordinary for the size of the speaker (about knee height), but vocals still remain clear. I have one minor issue: the treble is slightly too strong, and sometimes covers up the upper mid-range..
Summary: I simply wanted to receive better sound from my Mitsubishi DLP HDTV. (These sets provide excellent video with not so great audio.) I paired the Sony SS-B3000 speakers with an equally inexpensive Sherwood receiver and made my humble wish come true.
Summary: I bought these for $85 with free shipping from Amazon. For that price, they are truly hard to beat. They aren't a flashy looking set of speakers but they are classy enough. The sound is crisp and there is a surprising amount of bass response. If you're looking for heavy deep bass it is obviously not going to be there in a 'bookshelf' speaker, but these hit the higher bass ranges very cleanly.
Summary: The 6' high by 2' wide Magnepan electrostatice speakers were the "B" speakers and were a bit too big for the back of the living room. But they were pretty nice. When I saw the price for these Sony bookshelf speakers I thought that "what the heck, if they are no good I can give them to someone or maybe bring them to my office." I hooked them up and put them under the piano so they are out of sight, but not out of hearing.
Summary: HELP!!! all of a sudden I needed new speakers, my wireless speakers were caput!! Now these would not be the type of speakers I would use in my Home Theater,however I wanted something that would sound decent for am-fm radio. The Sony SS-B3000 fit the bill. You'll be happy with the value of these speakers. "I know I am. G.R.
