Summary: Good price for a three-way bookcase speaker. Depth of the speaker is fairly large and the speaker is front heavy meaning it must sit on a very deep shelf. Sound is a little tinny, but once the treble is adjusted on the receiver they sound fine. They look good.
Summary: They will do for now. Not what I had expected from Yamaha. The overall construction is OK, rather lightweight. I had expected gold plated binding posts, but what I got was the conventional pushbutton ones. I will keep them because they do work for my current configuration.
Summary: So good for the price! Not audiophile quality. The low end frequency is weak for how big the woofer is. But the sound is crisp and they are nice to look at. Plays well at all volumes (to an extent of course).
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.
Summary: This bookshelf speakers gives a clear sound and great fidelity without distorsion, also at high volume. No need any subwoofer. If you have any sub, and wish to connect it, my advice is to set it for the lowest frequencies, up to 40 hz.
Summary: While no one would mistake these speakers as first-rate for an audiophile, they do a good job without breaking the bank. I use them in one room, to listen to the rather eclectic collection of CDs I have accumulated.
Considering the price, there is good value here. Bit bulky and surprisingly not much bass.

Summary: I run these speakers with a Yamaha VX673 receiver, a Yamaha C210 center and some old HTiB LG sattelites. No sub yet, as I wanted to see how these bookshelves handled the bass. I'm not big on bass and normally listen at subdued volume, but considering the size of the drivers, I was expecting a deeper...
