"Great Sound at a Great Price"5.0 starson by flipicaneze
Pros: Visually appealing. Very full spectrum.
Cons: Why they pack such puny wires is beyond me. These will make you think twice about playing MP3's ever again. Just a little boomy.
Summary: I have these hooked up to a Sony STR-DA5300ES and previously had a pair of Sony SS-B3000's hooked up to them which sounded fine but I wanted BIGGER. I was dreaming of having a Klipsch system but I just can't afford it. After reading all the reviews and loving the SS-B3000's I figured why not give them a shot.After some good adjustments and long term listening, I felt I needed to add on to the boominess complaint.
First impression after removing from carton was "should I had bought this large of a speaker?". After all I live in an apartment. I figured oh well and continued to move things around to make room. After hooking them up I started accessing my computer through my PS3 for music. I discovered that most MP3 flaws are definitely much more defined with these speakers. I started playing some real CD's and my own rips and they sounded fine, in fact better then ever. I did notice some boominess and ended up turning down the bass way down to equalize the sound. Other then that the sound and looks are just fantastic and I look forward to buying myself more Sony speakers.

I do like the boominess, but because of the apartment thing, I didn't want the next door neighbors to complain. So far they haven't so the boominess is not groundshaking, but very audible.
