These speakers are incredible! I have owned them for about 6 months and have them hooked up to a Yamaha amp using Monster Z2 series cable. The sound is great. There is seamless transitions between high, mid, and low frequencies. These speakers also put out a lot of bass for the size of them. Best used with classical and jazz music. Also great for all other types. Very low frequency responce, and perform best when put on stands that raise them up. The only downside is that in very "bassy" music like rap or techno, the woofer may hit the grille. The grille can be removed to solve this problem. Of all the other speakers I have owned, this set blows them all out of the water! Excellent value!
