An underrated product, with some exceptional qualities.

Summary: These here speakers are awesome. They fill the room quite nicely, a deep bass and you can just blast that sound away. The obvious question is do I buy the 555 or the 777, in my opinion, the 555 is great sound for a smaller type of room. Will work best when most of the equipment is also Yamaha, which is my case.
Summary: I have owned this pair speakers for three years now. I am very happy with its performance with two channel music listening or as a home theater speaker. The first time I saw the speakers without grilles from the box, I was stunnned by their appearance, as if they costs more than a thousand dollars. At the time of purchase, no speakers in the shop costing more than these apeakers look more beautiful than the pair of yamaha ns 555 speakers.
Summary: I have come from Dynaudio Contour 1.3 SEs to the Yamahas...The Dynaudios are better in every possible way, bass, mids and treble. That said, the NS-555s are a darn good speaker for the money! They do not compare to $3500.00 speakers but you will be hard pressed to find a better speaker for less than $1000.00/pr new. They are not offensive in any way, though they will not grab your attention like the very best speakers.
Summary: Surprisingly good sound for the price! I plugged them to Yamaha receiver using bi-wiring and this config proved perfect for stereo listening. I can only recommend these speakers - nice finish and even better sound.
Summary: This was my first purchase I ever made on Ebay and it was very smooth. Very fast shipping. Exactly what I ordered and was easy to get a hold of them. Everything about this purchase was great. Thanks again.
Summary: Okay, I have owned these speakers for 2 years now. I love them!!! You can find them now anywhere from $180-$250 each. I got them for $450 new(taxes,shipping) When they arrived at my door and opened them up I was "WOW!!!!" my friend that was over even said "what the @#$%" just when i took them out of the boxes. They are solid! Beautiful and sexy. I then hooked them up to my DENON receiver Bi-wired with just a 75 watt per ch. And oh my god!
Summary: Awesome speaker with great tonnal balance when i listen to music i always run my reciever on pure direct and the clearity is awesome. The Bi-Wire capibility is great and is being used,and dont use my sub. Speaker placement is about a foot and a half from the wall with my chair eight feet from speaker. Only bad thing is like everyone says the DUST lol but dont let that keep u from buying them.
Summary: i dont own theses speakers or even an amp or receiver for that matter. I would love to know what the nominal ohms rating is if anybody knows. I am about to start my separates system and have got my eyes on a yamie rx-v765 and i think the speakers would suite fine i just hope there 8 ohms not 6.
Summary: This is an awesome value for the money, elegant looking awesome speaker. This speaker sounds awesome, it rivals speakers costing at-least five times it's price point. I think if someone's looking for a decent well rounded speaker at a budget, this is it. Only flaw I've noticed in them was bit bass shy, may be proper placing might solve this issue.
