Bottom Line:   
I bought these in 1993 from 2 guys in a white van. It was an anniversary present and a good deal for the times. This pair has been my front L/R speakers since that day and have always had a Denon pushing them. I have never been disappointed with my purchase and they still rock today although I am beginning to lose one of them so I am looking to replace them. Still, over 20 years and they still sound great in my Theatre watching movies! I will be upgrading this time as I earn more money now but these have more than paid for themselves.

I am bemused by these speakers and the story behind them. I was a full time recording engineer and had recently moved into working in audio duplication and mastering when I was approached by two guys with a van who appeared at my office in England (way in the country) with some of these speakers. This has to be at least 15 years ago. Long story short I bought a pair, seemed good value if they were half decent. All these years later they are still my main home stereo pair of big speakers and they have always sounded great. I have never been able to find out who made/makes them or where they are made so it is all very odd - still I am happy. These speakers are really good in an average (non acoustically treated) room but you need some space, they are not small. I would thoroughly recommend them with a decent power amp, my 100 watt per channel Denon handles them really well (woah, don't need to turn it up too loud!)

Just came across these reviews while doing a search for more info on the pair of Acoustic Studio Monitor 3311 speakers that I have owned for about 18 years. I am absolutely blown away to read how many people got theirs from "2 guys in a white van at a gas station". Guess where I got mine? I'm sure it's all a huge coincidence - NOT!! But to think this has been going on for so long? Amazing.
I really love these speakers, and have been very pleased with the way they handle high volumes and serious bass frequencies. Have used it with a Sony amp/receiver STR-DE925 in cinema sound mode with no problems. I also like the fact that they aren't huge like my other speakers, and don't crowd the room.

Crazy...I've had these speakers for about 15 years or so and wondered if there were any reviews. Guess where I bought them? Couple of guys in a van approached me in Los Angeles. I must have paid about $200 or so. Anyway, they are still working and I'm happy with them. Just can't believe how many other stories there are.

Bottom Line:   
I have had my Acoustic Studio Monitors 3311 for about 18 years. They have moved with me all over the U.S. I have had them hooked up to bad and good stereo systems and surround systems and I have always been pleased with them. Right now I have them hooked up to a high end high current Yamaha 7.1 surround system with a Yamaha center channel and Boston Acoustics in the rear with a powered Polk Audio 12" subwoofer and this system kicks butt. These Studio Monitors seem to be un blowable and sound great. I also frequently crank up CD's loud enough to play my drums to and these speakers never let me down. I don't know where they originally came from, I bought them from a friend many years ago, but have never regretted it. Rock on...
