Monitor Audio Radius 45

Use on a desktop compact stereo setup with Cambridge Audio CXA61 amp+Audioquest Type5 speaker cable+Carbon USB cable+NRG power cable+Furman AC-215a conditioner+Mac mini source with dedicated powered USB C to A hub with linear transformer+Kanto S2 speaker stand. Found very important and makes huge difference to loosen the rear hex screw(leave about 0.5-1mm out) which holds the driver unit to allow more free air flow preventing pressure build up on driver to a more opened sound and correct damping and greater soundstage. Also insert some damping material underneath speaker stand to reduce resonance. Dont go for AXA35 which has worse s/n ratio and has a small audible noise floor when not playing. Also it doesn't have enough power to fully control the driver. For close field, you want to have max control for full potential and CXA61 sounds perfect for the job with very nature and musical sound. Also power is everything to bring out the full potential of these drivers. Enjoy.

Use on a desktop sitting on Kanto S2 stands with a Brennan B2 (15W+15W RMS). Sound is great, as is the fit & finish.

Not bad for the price.

These sound pretty good. I don't know that I would buy them again. But they'll work for now. Decent sound. They help fill out a room. But the range seems somewhat limited. I don't love the rear-facing tweeter, but it keeps the size done. I'm using them as rear surround sound speakers in a small room. My spouse wanted something discreet.

Pros: Good size. Discreet.

Cons: Limited range and power, but not bad for a small amp.

Great quality and looks

Great looks and feel. Perfect rear speaker with bigger fronts and center. Would work well in a smaller setup as front and rear.

Pros: Size, quality, versatility

Cons: Better for rear sounds than music

Fills need to very small speakers

Mark S from Chicago, IL on 9/20/2016

We needed surround speakers that were as small as possible that still produced quality sound for our movie viewing. After much research, we found that this is a specific niche, and from our choices these were the obvious pick. Their walnut finish fits perfectly with our furniture, and by using existing tables we could set them up without having to use any speaker stands. We also are using a wireless speaker system to operate them without wires, which made the entire setup even more convenient. These speakers bring in a great sound that was missing prior to their installation.

Pros: Size Appearance Quality of sound vs their size

Cons:

Great Sound, Small Satellites

GLR from New Jersey on 11/28/2014

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Needed 2 satellite speakers to replace 2 existing larger Polk's in a 5.1 configuration. Was not comfortable going with the TS1 or TS2 as side view was a consideration and seemed like anything Bose had needed to include their sub (although other sellers claimed that was not "necessarily" the case). In wanting to get a simple one for one replacement of the two, I went with these on Crutchfield's recommendation. Sound great and look great as well. Very small cubes resting on 2 end tables around elbow height. Yeah, I know, not text book optimization but I don't care. They sound great there, crisp and full with the rest of the speakers, namely Wharfdale (L, C, R) and a basic sub.
