About Me Tech Savvy
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!
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.

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.

Nicely paired with my Sony receiver

I only add the subwoofer when listening to Opera or Classical music. Plenty of base in speakers for Rock & Roll or Jazz
my dream stereo come true
from girard pa
I got these speakers a few months ago and I am very pleased with all aspects of them. The sound is clear and clean. They are the perfect addition to our home theater. In addition to movies we enjoy a wide range of music on them as well. I was a bit skeptical about them at first because of the size of the woofers and was concerned with the lower end of the bass spectrum but these speakers definatly perform. I am running them off of a Sony strdh-800 7.1 channel amp and I have them paired with a Sony center channel and both large and small Sony book shelf speakers and Sony sub. They are the newest addition to my theater and could not be more impressed with the quality and value of all of the above mentioned Sony products. I would recommend all of them.

Great speaker. However if your a true classical music audiophile, you could benefit from a subwoofer in your system to fill out the very low resonant frequencies not merely of the bass, but the cellos as well. I don't fault these woofers. They give excellent response to the high end of the low end. They just work best with a woofer that covers the really low end better. Now a message for Sony if they monitor these customer reviews. Please improve the packaging. The styrofoam end pieces are designed to wrap around the each end of the speakers. This results in placing pressure on the grill cloth frames damaging a great many of them in transit. A better way would be to ship them with the frames off, the speaker boxes secured, and the frames resting without pressure in a redesigned styrofoam end piece with an integrated center channel to carry them.

Powerful Speakers, Low Price
from Albany, NY
I am using these speakers with the SS-CN5000 and SS-B1000 in a 5.1 surround setup. These speakers are the workhorse of the group, handling handling a vast range with precision and clarity. They produce a powerful low bass, down at 35 Hz they hit lower notes with more power than many of the cheaper subwoofers out there. And its clear why: 4 way crossover means each driver is handling its own range, the 8" mica reinforced cone is practically a subwoofer on its own. But this also means the mid-lows, mids, and highs can all be reproduced clearly and effortlessly by the other 3 drivers in the system. At the other end of the spectrum, the tweeter soars above 50,000 Hz. While we can't hear that high, what we can hear is reproduced in a clean, beautiiful sound you just would not expect from such innexpensive towers. The only faults I have with these is the wire it comes with: a flimsy 20-22 gague cable that should be replaced with a good thick 16 gague wire. Otherwise, these are perfect speakers for the audiophile-on-a-budget. Caution: using in small appartments with thin walls can result in angry roommates/neighbors!
