Rated a Very Helpful Review
The KLH L853B is a mid-size 3-way bookshelf speaker that sports a fairly solid 8" woofer, 5 1/4" mid, and dome tweeter. The cabinet is black and the front baffle is textured to help reduce tweeter/midrange resonances. The grille is detachable and is black cloth with a wood frame instead of the cheap breakable plastic most budget speakers include. The wire connections are gold plated 5-way binding posts (almost unheard of in such a budget minded speaker.) These speakers have a surprisingly smooth and open sound quality for a set that lists for $119.99 a pair. The bass is tight, deep, and solid. The midrange is open and smooth but seems to be a tad more relaxed than expected. The tweeter shockingly lacks the edgy sound most budget dome tweeters provide. The highs are quite natural sounding. I have them as my front channels in my home theater paired with a Paradigm center speaker. The tonal quality of the KLH's are surprisingly similar to the Paradigm (a huge compliment.)

The other reviewer states that the sound of these speakers are "fuzzy". He mentioned having them hooked up to a Philips home theater in a box. That could be the problem. I have mine hooked up to my Yamaha R-V1105 digital receiver and I'm perfectly satisfied with the sound. A well made amp makes a bigger difference than most think. I've also had these speakers hooked up to a Pioneer stereo receiver. They sounded okay but nothing in comparison to the Yamaha. But it's unlikely that someone who buys a $20 pair of speakers will take a chance like me and hook them up to a quality home theater system but these speakers surprised me and I'm glad I took a chance. KLH and Best Buy saved me quite a bit of money offering this unbelievable value and even a the normal $80 a pair price they're a bargain. If they go on sale again, someone would have to be stupid not to jump to buy them.
