Bottom Line:   
CL impulse purchase for $20...these are very impressive...and they don't sound like typical
$200 speakers which often have fatal flaws...these have a unique presentation in that one gets detail yet warmth...imaging is also very good...bass response can be overly energetic at times but with rear port they need to be away from walls...these have far more detail than the highly regarded original Paradigm atom or PSB alpha....tweeter has far less sibilance than the VR line......mellow, open midrange, and punchy bass make these a very good all around speaker...when BA went to the Deep Channel bass drivers...as clean as they sound...they seem a bit bass shy...these are not...and probably the last BA series that stil sound like old school BA A series speakers...tremendous value new or used...I have 2 pairs now

Bottom Line:   
Picked up a pair for $20 @ the Salvation Army thrift a year or so ago. Someone had painted them a nasty brown color, so repainted them - the grills look REALLY sharp painted with Krylon Brushed Metallic Satin Nickel, contrasts nicely with the blue-painted cabs. Just painting the grilles in Satin Nickel alone would greatly enhance the boring stock black or white paint schemes.

Use these as nearfield monitors in the man-cave. Have compared them with Celestion 3's, many other "audiophile" speakers of similar size. They're staying put, the others never last.

If you see a pair on craigslist for $50/pr or less, snap them up.

Bottom Line:   
Great, full sound for a reasonable cost. I've generally preferred Boston's for their flat sound which doesn't additionally color the sound. These CR6's are mounted as "B" channel speakers in a 18'x12' room. They're wall mounted with the BA swivel brackets, and since they can only fit close to the corners, tend to be more bassy than I thought they'd be. the "A" channel speakers in the larger room are Boston HD 10's, which sound more 'open' when compared to the CR6's in the smaller room. The CR6's have a great range and handle the power from a Sony ES 85w fronts very well.

Bottom Line:   
I picked these up to round out my home theater. Also got the Boston CR8's for my main speakers. I am very impressed!! The highs are so crisp it can be painful. The midrange is good and solid. Bass is a bit weak but who cares. Anyone with a decent systems going to use a sub anyway. The speakers also have a good look to them, nice and modern without being to gaudy. I would recommend this setup.

Just a side note: I originally got the metal 'tube' stands but they vibrated way to much. Took them back and got the basic wood stands....love them, much better, doesn't detract from the sound quality.
