I bought these speakers about 14 months ago. I was prepared to spend between $1000 and $1500 for a new set of speakers. Before I spent that much money, I deciced to check out what Sony had to offer. I've had good luck with Sony products in the past. When I saw the low price of these speakers, I was skeptical. However, like I said before, I've had good results with Sony in the past, so I went a head and bought them. I have no regrets. I'm using a 100 watt per channel Sony Stereo reciever, STR-DE135 and a Sony CD/DVD player, DVP-S300. These speakers are amazing given their price. I would put them up aganist speakers costing three or four times as much per pair. Highs are clear and well dispersed, mids are clear and bass is abundant and well defined. They have a spacious and transparent character to their sound, and they will play very loud. Also, they look as good as they sound. I use them for everything. Listening to music and movies. They're great. Don't their low price scare you off.

When I was a kid, I'd drop a weeks' pay for a pair of speakers inferior to these. Now the old speakers are dying, I'm replacing them all. The F6000s are so much better than the expensive Phase-Tech towers they replace. However, I also bought the SS-B3000 bookshelf speakers and the SS-F5000 towers. Both of these have the larger 8 inch woofer, and they are much better balanced speakers. For a large room I'd advise ponying up for the SS-F7000s. I'm sure my 100 watt/channel receiver would have been adequate. I placed the 6000s in a 20 x 18 room with a 12 floor ceiling. They don't do the job. Need to use an equalizer to increase the bass on the 6.5 inch woofers. Wish I'd bought the 7000's with the 8 inch woofers. They are all great value.

I was hesitating in getting this speakers, thinking they didn't have the sound quality what I was looking for, but after reading and looking the best bang for my bucks I finally got them and when I first tried with my sound system it blew me away how much difference it did with my tv sound and music files, amazing sound , definitely ...I'm so glad I got them!

This pair is perfect for the STR-DH520. I have no complaints. They are very full sounding. They take over well when there is no sub signal. They are a bit more center directional than I like but I have two other much older speakers that are taking the surround job in hand well. I will be replacing them with a pair of these in a month. These are very capable speakers.
Had to grab these to replace my SS5000,not that there was anything wrong with them but I caught the SS7000 at a great price.All around great performers.

We use them for our home theater. Although the design not attractive. The treb and bass sound so great.

Looking for great sounding speakers and don't want to skip the mortgage payment? Get these speakers. Very clear, crisp sound. Classical music sounds incredibly real and alive (like the violin is playing right in front of you), so do soccer games (you'll feel you're in the stadium). I don't even have any other speakers (not even a subwoofer), these are it, and my living room is huge with high ceiling. These fill the whole room with sound. Get them and don't let the low price to cast doubt in your mind. Performance/price ratio deserves 6 stars (despite the cheap wiring included in the package).

I purchased these (and the SS-B3000s) to replace some pioneer speakers I just purchased (which i returned). These speakers produce clear, loud sound. They have a large body, but they manage to retain a high build quality feel. Putting these in a 10' x 11' bedroom isn't the ideal location, but I bought them with the future in mind. They capture a large range of sound. I'm currently running them in stereo, and plan on running them in 5.1. I can see these breathing a lot of life into a larger room (living room, family room). I've only tested these primarily with music and video games.
Very Good Speakers
I never associated Sony producing good speakers, I replaced my aging JBLs with these speakers. These are really good speakers, hundreds of great reviews out on the Net.
from New Hampshire
Great speakers for ALL types of music!!! Looks very nice looking with grills off, pumping some tunes through them!!! Nicely tuned tower speakers for your surround sound, your everyday music... YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THESE SPEAKERS!!!
