Bottom Line:   
Bought my speakers from eBay for the tiny sum of 150 pounds. For this amount of money you get a lot of speaker.
Sound is clear and smooth, Hook them up to a good av receiver and you'll be deaf before you hit the top end. The only downside is the lack of bass at low levels, you would expect more clout from a speaker this size.
Best advice is to pop them in a good home cinema system and let a separate sub handle the bass, do this and it feels like your standing next to Russell Crowe fighting the gladiators with him.
Overall great speakers, great price, just lacks that bit of bass.
Modern speakers this size with better bass would easliy cost you £1000 or more.

Bottom Line:   
I needed speakers for my computer and went on a speaker hunt and found these. Look really nice and have a perfect size that makes them fit right in. Good bass and clarity witch you only find in the 1000$ and up class speakers. I like them alot.

Bottom Line:   
These speakers are Big!
You'll need a big room, but these babies really do sing.
Whilst they were a little bright out of the box, a couple of weeks
later they were warming up nicely.
Having tried with a variety of amps, they prove sympathetic to them all.

Bottom Line:   
So, great expectations at £500, and with all those drivers you might expect a well engineered package that is both involving and well seperated. Well, this is not the case, at first the treble is a little rough and forward, and bass light, but you expect this to go after about 2-3 weeks, but well some of it has! The treble remains so prominent, sounding very cold, and uninvolving, you might expect the bass to make up for it, but again for a speaker of such proportions the bass is less than satisfactory, and imaging is a little poor. However, they do work well with movies, and I suppose that was what they were designed for. The £300 MS25I's sound a lot better,(and look nicer)my advice is look at something with a bit more all round ability.
