Bottom Line:   
i've bought this speakers this summer second hand for around 160€. this is just the buy of the century! they have a verry rich sound with hi's and mids that you normaly find on speaker costing +600€.

the bass is good and it sound acurate and tight and there is plenty of bass but it doesnt go that deep. it rolls of about 50-55 Hz so you may want to get a nice sub. I'm now searching for an asw300.

but overall this is a really good speaker!

Hi, (350€ paid)

i bought this pair of speaker about 3 years ago. Im running them with a Marantz PM-78. After these time i can say that it is a really great speaker if you see the price and what you get for that. The speaker is in this priceclass unbeaten. I love that sound. The mid and highs are really good. Especially voices sound great. The bass sometimes has a lag. But it also sounds well. There is only one thing i dont like at this speaker. If he has to play real Metal sound he is not hard enough. You can hear it that he doesnt like that style of music. All in all i would buy it again. i have just ordered a pair of B&W 604 S3. The 305 will become my Rearspeaker now for the planned Home Cinema. All i can say is - if you get this speaker for about 300-400€ buy it. Its old but in this price class still one of the best i think.

Bottom Line:   
Quality speaker at this price point...nice imaging for a small floorstanding speaker. Good for HT, outstanding with a sub (I'm currently using a Boston PV600 for HT). For a two-channel set-up, I'd probably opt for 601's or 602's with good pair of stands. For HT, they're tough to beat. As for the bass complaints...I think you're all expecting too much from a fairly small full range speaker. It "is what it is" ...good all around speaker for the $$$.
