Excerpt: Added this to a smaller bedroom system driven by a Marantz 1604 receiver. Initially, the main criteria was that it fit inside the available space, but once I re-calibrated the system with it installed, I really like this thing, especially for the price.
Summary: I've been researching subs and speakers online for a while now, and it's interesting how many folks begin their reviews by disclosing whether they are or aren't an "audiophile." What is that? Is it someone who has a degree in sound engineering? To me, that would be an "audiologist.
Summary: Sony really needs to revamp their entire amplifier engineering. They make a product that performs well, and I am sure is cost effective for them- but just doesn't have the stamina people expect out of electronics.
Summary: First off WOW! I switched to this from an older Onkyo subwoofer when I upgraded my system from 7.1 to 7.2 and let me tell you this thing has POWER. First off I do want to address the previous reviews saying that this sub is just a thumper and doesn't get a good range.
Summary: Great subwoofer!!! Very good low end response and power for the price. We use it with a home loudspeaker setup for more bottom end. We play instruments through it (guitar bass etc) and it sounds great.
Summary: I've had this speaker for almost ten years, and I LOVE it. The independent power and volume controls make tuning my system to different music types a breeze. I listen to everything from rap and dubstep to violin concertos, and I notice a depth of sound in all ranges that differs drastically between...
Summary: Easy set up. Just plug RCA cable from receiver to unit & plug AC cord into wall outlet. Much easier than the multiple speaker wires of subwoofer it replaced. Great sound! Feels like I'm in THX, IMAX theatre auditorium.
