I like the speaker

Long Chee Teck Daniel, Amazon
12 June 2015
  • Summary: Beware! I like the speaker, but the item description clearly says it takes "banana" plugs. The actual item that arrives takes only bare wire. Not good, since my good cables are all banana terminated. Other than that, great value!

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.

3 stars for being so cheap

Golfer, Amazon

  • 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.

great exterior, shoddy interior

Amazon
25 October 2009
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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
