    Impressive Little Speakers

    I am using these speakers as the surround left and right components to a 5.1 system complemented by the SS-7000 towers and SS-5000 center channel. These speakers perform well for this function: surround effects are distinct and dramatic. When listening to Rush's R30 concert on blue-ray, the ambient effects produced by these little speakers offers a breathtaking experience. Better speakers for less money do not exist. Pure and simple, the entire sony SS-#000 series offers the best value in Hi-Fi speakers. As a replacement to any pair of HTIB speakers, these are a fantastic improvement that anyone from the tech-ignorant to the audiophile-on-a-budget can appreciate. The only fault I can find in these speakers is that they do not produce an earth-rattling bass, but this is to be expected with a 5 1/4" cone handling a broad range of frequencies. If you plan on using these as your main stereo speakers, you might find the performance a bit underwhelming especially without a subwoofer. Theyre good, but they wont produce the same sound as the towers in this line (SS-F5000, 6000, and 7000) Also the 20 to 22 gague cable that comes with it is fairly wimpy and at approximately 6 feet doesnt quite reach far enough for typical surround applications. I threw this out and ran 16 gague wire to fix the problem.

    Disappointed

    What a huge appointment...especially after a price increase of twenty dollars. Just got them, installed them and now I'm repackaging them for a return and refund. What a waste of time....Read complete review

    What a huge appointment...especially after a price increase of twenty dollars. Just got them, installed them and now I'm repackaging them for a return and refund. What a waste of time. This why I hate ordering on line vs testing on a store floor model.

      Comments about Sony Black Bookshelf Pair Speakers:

      I was looking for a modest, affordable upgrade from the cheap surround sound speakers that came free with my Sony receiver. I am an occasional surround-sound user and I wasn't interested in spending top-dollar for something I use every once in a while. I trust Sony for my A/V equipment and these speakers are a nice addition.

      Comments about Sony Black Bookshelf Pair Speakers:

      These are great little speakers that I use in my living room for my stereo receiver. They are small, but they are heavy-ish and ideally I'd like to hang them, but I don't want to have to use anchors.

            I purchase these speakers to replace two Panasonic speakers that came with the CD-IPOD player I have in our summer home. The Panasonic was a 4 wire connection and the Sony's are a 2 wire. After I connected them they seem to have good sound and look forward to recommending them.

              Comments about Sony Black Bookshelf Pair Speakers:

              I think these speakers are the best bookshelf speakers, on the market and there at an amazing price. These speakers take and put out plenty of power,I have the sony sscn4000 sony's and there also great,And I have a pair of John Blue custom tower speakers and the ones I'm most pleased with are the sony ss-b 1000"s just a really good speaker sony could have asked much more for these.but there priced at a great price.

              Solid li'l rockers

              By pinballer

              from Undisclosed

              Comments about Sony Black Bookshelf Pair Speakers:

              I've had 3 pair of these in their various cosmetic iterations for about 6 years. They are hands down my faves in the world of affordable bookshelves. I have a pair in my gameroom and with an old Sony receiver, they will indeed rock the house with good detail. Front firing port gives these things plenty of low-end. Tweeters in one pair are dead- a bit disappointing but again they have been pushed hard. I replaced the tweets with silk-domes, and they sound every bit as good as my far more expensive Energy bookshelves.

              I am using the SS-B1000s as near field speakers in a desk top system with a nuforce DAC and Topping amp. The sound is punchy and vibrant with rock and smooth with classical and jazz. Why pay more?

              Bought these speakers to use with Sony receiver DH-520 7.1, using as front left and right channel, cranked it up yesterday on 2 channel stereo setting, the sound of these speakers just blew me away, i even had my sub-woofer turned off, don't need that with these speakers. These are some powerful little things. Buy them, you can't go wrong with them. Great work Sony.
