Good Buy.

  • Summary: A little bigger than I thought they were going to be, but they blow the elderly Denon speakers that came with my bookshelf system away: they're used primarily for TV audio, and the sound is clear and sharp, and small details are audible even at low volume. I'm sure audiophiles will find nits to pick, but for the rest of us, these are pretty damn good.

Awesome for the price

  • Excerpt: These speakers are quite amazing for their price. I just played a classical pipe organ number which has super low and super high frequencies and the speakers handled it like a champ. I took the fabric faces off to protect them from my cats and they look nice "naked". I like their size - just right. Easy wire connections. Plain black finish is nothing special. I have mine sitting on the floor (the are about end table high ) but should sit nicely on a decent sized shelf.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Great Sound Quality

Sound good and look good

  • Summary: Make sure you check the exact dimensions of the speakers, if you're like me and just assume they're small bookshelf speakers, you might be surprised at how large they are. So far they're doing a good job, even after both having fallen 3 feet to the hardwood floor due to cheap speaker stands. I'm not an audiophile and ordered these to replace the tiny side speakers that shipped with my "system-in-a-box" from years ago. They certainly do a better job than those.

Perfect poof - out the port

Fatweasel, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I get a thrill at feeling the Poof comeing out the side port. The louder the Poofyer.I believe that the Active Servo System and sound dispersion is what sets this subwoofer apart from others. I kicked out my last "front firer" (second sub. used with RX-V675)For lack of thump, behind the listening recliner. Yah, I know how to live. Paid twice as much for it in favor of my now new YST-Sw012. We will see and hear a big difference when it arrives. I am sure of it!

Excellent Speakers

  • Excerpt: Speakers sound is clear and detailled. I use them as L R for my 5.1 surround setup with a Denon AV, mostly for music playing. The speakers bring out sounds that were unnoticeable before. The free and superfast shipping was a bonus.

For the money, you can't beat them.

John Tew, Amazon

  • Summary: Know what you want before purchasing these speakers. I listen mostly to Roy Orbison and similar music. Three way speakers with clear mid-range is what I wanted and is what I got. Beautiful sound. Not bad bass. Much better than I expected. I added a sub-woofer to make sure I could hear everything. I love LPs because they are what I grew up with and they sound fantastic on these speakers. Back in the day I had a pair of the exotic Dalquist 5 way speakers.

A Rare Product

26 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this unit with a pair of Audioengine 5A+ in the medium sized salon on board my 40 foot yacht. If you listen to music (classical as I do, or heavy beat rock) this subwoofer is perfect. If you prefer to listen to earthquakes and knock down walls, you should try something else.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Integrate, Easy To Set Up, Front controls, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality, Quite Small
  • Cons: Doesn't Move Walls
