Good Value

Arthur Hoyt, Amazon

  • 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. These speakers will do a good job for all but the most critical of listeners, better than the quality we have come to accept these days. Delivery was quick, and the items arrived in great shape. For the money, a good choice.

No need for high priced speakers

Scott Thornburg, Amazon
11 February 2014
  • Summary: Recently took an unused room in my house and wanted to turn it into a "music" room. Wasn't looking to spend a bunch, but wanted good sound. After much research, I decided on these speakers, the Yamaha R-S201 receiver, and the Audio Technica LP60 turntable. For around $300 I have a very good sounding system. I've never heard vinyl sound this good. I could've spent MUCH more than I did.

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 bass (I know, it's enclosed, as has been mentioned). I've seen the reviews that bass was a bit lacking, but thought that with my taste, that woulden't be a problem.

Recommended with some mods to improve bass.

  • Summary: These speakers sound pretty good in stock form but even better with some mods. For more bass (a lot more) you can add two bass reflex ports (available from speaker parts stores) placing one above and between the mid and tweeter and the other below and between mid and tweeter. I found the mid and tweeter too bright and padded them down with several 5 watt cement resistors in series, adding 18 ohms to the tweeter (3 x 6 ohms) and 12 ohms to the mids (3 x 4 ohms).

Good Value, Good Sound!

  • Summary: The Yamaha NS-6490 3-way design has been on the market for quite a few years and, IMHO, for very good reasons. A listener who values a smooth, full and well balanced presentation and soundstage will be hard pressed to find a better speaker for the money. Have owned and listened to a goodly number of speakers since my college days of yore! These are on my personal "short list" of all around best and most versatile speakers for both music and video, regardless of price.

SOLID CONSTRUCTION

ANTHONY PIZARRO, Amazon
11 September 2013
  • Summary: I'VE USED YAMAHA SPEAKERS INT THE PAST. I HUNG A PAIR OUTSIDE AWAY FROM THE RAIN AND THEY LASTED 10 YEARS, DITTO FOR THE PAIR I HAD BEFORE THEM. THE POLYPROPYLENE SPEAKERS SHOULD LAST LONGER AS THEY ARE RESISTANT TO MOISTURE. THE PLASTIC FACE SHOULD ADD TO THE WEATHER ENDURANCE OF THESE SOLID SPEAKERS. I LIVE IN MIAMI AND THERE IS PLENTY OF HUMIDITY HERE. IF YOU USE THEM INSIDE THEY SHOULD LAST A LIFETIME.

great sound

,,,,,, Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: upgraded from a set of 2 way sony bookshelfs, and am setting up a 7.1 system. these speakers are great, couldnt ask for better sound, high, mid, and lows are are clear and not at all over done in any area. the reason i gave only 4 stars, is boy are they big, boom box big, and the black mesh screen is very thin you can see the white speaker through it. makes a nice home feel like a frat house. all in all happy with my purchase, go with a 3 way speaker!
