I am very impressed by these bookshelves. I'm currently using them as surrounds in my HT setup. The bass on them is excellent and really makes for excellent impact in HT use. I've also played multi channel stereo through them and they sound very clear, defined and warm. I'd highly recommend for surrounds or stereo use. I'm strongly considering a second pair for a stereo setup in my office!

Excellent speaker. Amazing detail. Surprising bass, Bottom porting helps with room placement. Spacious, great soundstage.

I used these speakers on all of my solid state equipment and was about to return them. For kicks I hooked them up to my Decware tube amp and holy realism! I didn't think 30 watts per channel would be able to drive a speaker with this low sensitivity but I underestimated my amp AND Elac! These folded ribbon tweeters love tubes! They sound detailed and delicate with beautiful mids and upper bass. Running mine with a sub for the very bottom. A+ on the speakers and on Crutchfield for some of the best service out there.
Pros: Great sound

These sound great. The highs are crisp supple & detailed. The bass is full. They are not the loudest or most roon-filling.
Pros: Detailed highs - full bass
Cons: Not the loudest or most room-filling

I traded in a pair of KEF LS50Ws to get these because the treble sounded shrill and prevented me from really enjoying those speakers. Couldn't be happier! Bass is great, mid is loud and clear, and the treble is smooth and detailed. Perfect match for my Cambridge Audio CXA81. Highly recommended!

An audiophile friend recommended these speakers and Crutchfield confirmed my friends recommendations. Chatting with Stone and the crew at Crutchfield and finding out Andrew Jones, (the designer of these speakers) actually visited Crutchfield and showcased them with the crew at Crutchfield, helped me with the decision to buy them. Along with the Carina Center and bookshelf speakers, running through my A2080 receiver, I put on Dark Side of the Moon remastered album from Alan Parsons, and it brought me to tears on how beautiful of a sound these speakers put out. And they are still in the break in phase. Thanks Stone and the crew at Crutchfield for the time you took to help me with my purchase.
Pros: Amazing sound
