Not quite as expected.

Dennis, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased these to compliment and finish out a self made surround sound and complimenting my other Yamaha speakers and a Yamaha 673 AV Receiver. My 3 star rating is for spring loaded clips in stead of the screw type. I was lead to believe the speakers built for U.S. use were of the screw type. Other than that, the sound is of good quality...for the price I paid for them. I would recommend these.

3 stars for being so cheap

  • Summary: I've had these for a few weeks now and decided to do a review - I gave them 3 stars because they are so cheap. First off the highs are the only thing going for these speakers - the mids and lows are muddy and the highs actually overpower the rest of the range. If it weren't for the tweeters being as good as they are I'd have sent them back.

great exterior, shoddy interior

Dadaist, Amazon

  • Summary: Made purchase of these NS-6490's on clearance from the 'shack in fall 2009 and I'm glad I did. Probably not worth current retail prices but grab them on markdown if you can. The exterior is beautiful even with the glaring white woofers. The speaker has the required heft to dampen the 8" woofer, and the range should be smooth with the choice of provided driver sizes. Unfortunately we consumers just won't know what it is capable of until it gets a decent crossover.

  • Excerpt: Тестировал из коробки. Понравилась середина и высокие, низкие не воспроизводятся достаточно полно(контрабас, мужской баритон какой-то кастрированный, обертонов нет) На 50-ти ватах чудовищная каша из искажений.На 100 ватном усе дальше 11 часов слушать невозможно. Имею колонки яма-9502 воспроизводят тот-же материал идеально, вообще очень доволен ими в пределах 50-70 Вт. Поэтому относительно их этим только тройка.
  • Pros: Полная середина, но где-то до 30 Вт, дальше чудовищные искажения
  • Cons: Недостаток низких. С увеличением громкости от 30 Вт и дальше колонки выдают хлопки на средне-низких, ощущение что разорвутся динамики
