Bottom Line:   
Very difficult to beat the BA VRB set-up. Not my favorite for HT however very competent for 2-channel listening or multi-channel formats. Bass is usable to 40HZ and is best described as musically tight or crisp. Mids are thankfully not dialed up for movie dialogue/sound effects and the treble (if it errs at all) leans to the slightly warm side--that is not a detriment. As the other reviewer stated; the VRB's will announce lukewarm equipment. It doesn't need to be top dollar stuff as I've switched various components and finally settled right back where I started. The pair is driven by a modestly priced Yamaha M-45 that controls them very, very well. I wasn't crazy with either of my Integrated units about the sound. One Yamaha and one Denon each having 110 watts full spectrum didn't do the speakers justice--the difference was noticable even considering the time consuming chore of swapping cables.

Bottom Line:   
Thease are outstanding speakers for the price. bass, treble, midrange all is crystal clear. the boston speakers all have a very forward sound, with excellent imageing. The construction is first rate, very solid, heavy for their size.
I have auditioned many speaker's before buying these, none of which could match the sonic power of the vrb's.. I am useing pioneer elite electronics and they are a perfect match...
Put these on you're shopping list... If you are useing them with quality electronics. They are VERY revealing, not good if you are useing mass market electronics.
