Excellent speaker when small size is a consideration
2 weeks ago
Summary: I was considering these speakers for quite a while and finally purchased them when the price dropped to $79.95 per pair. Very full sound for a 5" woofer. I'm using two of these for stereo music listening. I played several songs that I use to test new speakers and both sounded as good or better than when using my Infinity Primus P163s (the test songs were "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zeppelin and "I Love You" by People).
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.
