Summary: Running in a bedroom.Great sound.Very happy... Foobar to Fiio DAC to Indeed tripath amp.Only 9-12 watts = plenty for these. Would pick over popular Micca42x for a more balanced sound.I have both and the Teac h265 is better.
Summary: These are the best budget speakers on the market they retail for $199 a pair and their a rediculous bargain right there, at under a $100 its highway robbery Im blown away by them! The finish and build quality is reminiscent of a $600 to $1200 speaker, the sound is worthy of that as well.
Awesome Sound Fom A Compact And Classy Looking Monitor

Summary: These speakers sound great for what they are-a 5" 2-way ported system. The gloss black piano finish is just icing on the cake. For a music system in a small/medium sized room these are almost ideal. A sub definately helps with the lows, but these TEAC's can hold their own by themselves. Great for classical and jazz as long as you keep the volume at a reasonable level. IMHO, the TEAC LS-H265's are a great sounding value.
Summary: These are a good value for the money, especially if the appearance is important to you. The black finish is similar to the black lacquer of a piano, and it shows fingerprints and small scratches easily. Audiofiles will not be impressed. For example, these pale compared to a higher-end Sonus Faber, so don't bother comparing them to a high end line. The sound tends towards the high and mid-ranges, lows are thin. Check the actual dimensions.
Summary: Thus was an upgrade from a pair of Polk Monitor 30's. Long ago I used to use a pair of TOA near-field monitors. To my ears these Teacs are phenomenal for the money, definitely best in class for under $300. I use them connected to my PC for Video and Audio editing with Adobe Premiere Pro and Audition (CS6). The sound in comparison with the Polks is night and day.
Summary: I caught the audio bug some years ago which has resulted in quite a bit of speaker purchases over the years. I've gone through a few smaller/bookshelf speakers and some very much more expensive larger speakers. For this review, I pulled a bookshelf speaker I bought around 5 years ago that were in the same price range and sat them side by side and swapped speaker cables back and forth.
Summary: This pair of speakers is beautifully finished, and it looks much nicer than those with a typical wood finish. I'm not a big fan of shiny stuff, but there are exceptions. I like to compare this finish to a beautiful grand piano with its deep black with a touch of glossiness; this pair resembles the same feel. The size is rather big if I consider this as a bookshelf speakers, but it weighs about right.
Summary: I was surprised at the precise, clean sound from these elegant little speakers. The Teac LS-H265 system is nicely compact, with output quality surpassing much larger ones. The sound compares very favorably to my old Rectilinears, and in a side by side test, simply blew away my newer set of (much larger) Yamahas.
Summary: . I don't have an expert ear or expert knowledge of speakers, but I did do a careful A-B comparison with my current 3-speaker system (2 small wall-mounted Cambridge Soundworks speakers plus a woofer). These Teacs sounded very good and did a much better job with symbol work on a jazz recording. They are also more efficient, putting out more sound at a given volume level. As others have mentioned, the high-gloss finish seems like high-grade plastic.
Summary: These Teac LS-H265 speakers are gorgeous and well built. The sound great as well. Likes: - Solid construction. Seamless cabinet all around (except for front panel, which is hidden beneath grille). - Grilles: Attach on stainless posts which slip into rubber grommeted holes. Solid and good looking. - Cable connectors. Hefty through-post screw terminals. - Size. These actually fit on my bookshelf, unlike my infinity 6" speakers, which take a good 20% more room.
