Summary: I've had them for close to a year and they are rock solid. Sound is great and bass is more than enough for my pool area. If you want to annoy your neighbors with pounding bass then these are not the speakers for you. For all around good sound don't hesitate.
Summary: Sound is excellent. Only wish the mounts supplied were able to tilt whether mounted vertically or horizontally. As these are mounted on my second story patio I wanted the speakers aimed down and had no choice but to mount vertically. Otherwise I'm happy and would likely buy them again.
Summary: These speakers meet all of my expectations. The performance is not quite the equal of my inside speaker set-up, but in part that is because the inside acoustics cannot be duplicated outside. Very well satisfied.
Good sounding speaker. Good value. So far so good.

Summary: I purchased the Yamaha ns-aw570 at Costco towards the end of the fall of 2012. They were the last pair on the shelf and Costco was selling them for $90. Bought on impulse, but in retrospect a good value.
