Summary: I rather like these speakers, they were pretty easy to setup and work great with my surround sound system. I wish they would change the picture though, it makes it look like you get 2 speakers but you only get one.
Summary: I started out to buy a center speaker for my Wally World type surround sound so called system , Well! the Yamaha center i ended up with drowned out the W.W. so called system...So! Ya can't have a Surround Sound System with one speaker & to make a not so long story shorter went from a 4.1 W.W. system to a 7.2 all Yamaha system a piece at a time including the Receiver...this brings me to the "Last Purchase of Yamaha Speakers" ... Now!
Summary: Quality speakers, nicely complements a pair of larger Yamaha front main speakers. Chose these speakers because I didn't want to buy stands separately or go through the trouble of wall mounting the rear speakers.
Summary: I would say this speaker is nice looking floor standing speaker with great high. However, it misses mid size woofers, and it does not perform well with music. Great for a small place, and movies. A good Sub with good freq response range is required to complement it.
Summary: Get it. It looks good, sounds nice and most importantly, the wifey likes it. Why 4 and not 5 stars? it still does not compare to my old Sansui's. HOWever, it's way better [or as good] as all speakers I've reviewed at the big box stores that are 2 to 3 times the price. Come on Yamaha - You CAN do better than 30 year old speakers.
