Summary: I am the last person to every buy any Sony products, especially speakers!!! The last system I owned was purchsed at a hi-fi store in Toronto Ontario, I own products from Fisher and Denon. I am a sound snob and will pay double the average for a good product. What no one has mentioned is the depth these speakers have. I want to hear all the highs and lows, if you have a crap driver for your speakers they will not perform as intended.
Summary: these speakers are crap.they sound muffled and have no bass.but what can i say there sony.buy a sony tv or es receiver .but dont buy there speakers.i got rid of these speakers after six months and bought polk rti100's.major differance
Summary: These speakers are great. i didnt think they were gonna be but my dad picked them out so i trusted him and im glad i did because they are the best. my dad has klipsch speakers and they are cleaner but these speakers are not bad i am getting another pair and they are the sony ss-mf650h but these ar nice. my room shakes with these.the midrange makes it all that crisper and cleaner it is nice.
Summary: i have been using these speakers for 5 months.when i hooked them up i did not know what 2 expect(because they were cheap towers and sony).well my thoughts were right, highs sounded muffled and speackers had no bass.i felt like i wasted my money. i could not return them,but i felt like i had to do something.so i took the speaker apart,and replaced the inside wiring with monster cable.it made a world of differance!
Summary: These speakers are great in every way especially in the highs and lows. The base is excellent. The best music to listen to on these babies is rock and rap. I have a kenwood amp with these and beleive me we are talkin some serious power. I like the bass in these speakers with the 8" woofers. The midrange is excellent.
Summary: Yes.. for the money they are just about the best thing you can do, and i do mean it. My friend has $1000 dollar klipsch speakers, and his do sound a bit crisper and cleaner (on a really good cd or dvd), however i doubt that it is worth the &750 difference. They are nearly as good at most levels. The Sony's also produce alot of volume withought any distortion.
Summary: I was rather happy with these speakers. They have Ausome sound, and for the price they ROCK! Much better then KHL! With there 50khz high, they have an ausome high range, VERY good for Home Theater, Thats where i think they really "shine". Music though does not sound bad at all, i listen to mostly Electronica, witch has a big range, and boy do these sound nice...
Summary: These speakers kick ass! I'm not usually a fan of Sony, but they have done quite well. I got them for a second system in my Jam Room and I am totally impressed. I was worried about the bass but WHOA! Position them the CORRECT way (see your catalog) and the lows are fantastic! My main system is all Yamaha for audio and Mitsubishi for video.
Summary: Sony finally is making a name for themselves in the speaker area. I am upgrading, making a nice HT system, and I thought these would add a nice punch to the movies and music. WOW! I got a deal on them, saved about 100 bucks through etronics.com (go there!) and I am so impressed with the sound. Nice work Sony! Buy these if you want incredible sound with great bass! I almost wonder if I even need to bother buying a sub!
