Bottom Line:   
So I bought the speakers after deep consideration. I got it from polish auction site for ca 200$ so I think it was cheap. Until last week I was very pleased with the sound although they lacked bass especially in movies (no problem, I bought a decent sub and it's more than ok now). Now to the one really big con. Last week I bought a cd of polish singer Gaba Kulka who has very specific voice frequency. And what happened is that the tweeters started to "fart" at about 3,5 khz. It almost makes it impossible to listen (yes - it's that bad). I don't know if it's problem with my pair only (the speakers are 7 years old) or is it some problem with the electronics.

Bottom Line:   
Bascially These are the complete speaker for anylistener of any kind. I play mine through a Technics SU-A600 mk2 (amp) and a technics SL-Pg4 cd player. I listen mostly to rock alternitive so bass is a must have factor. well if it is bass you are looking for you have found it, i totally recommend bi - wireing them not that i have tried them any other way, but then again why would you? I did feel the need to adjust the eq on my amp to get the best out of the speakers but then again this is standard practise. the tweeters are also great sounding and along with the bass make get acoustic song listening with vocals sounding very strong. for 120 quid (look around you'll get em for 100) it's a great deal!

Bottom Line:   
Two years ago I bought a pair of Liberty 3+ bokshelf speakers and have been using them with a DVD player and separate amp. I have been very impressed with the sound for the price of the speakers. While on holiday in the UK this year I wanted to get the floorstanding version Liberty 5+ and just couldn't resist the 99 / pair price. I have been using these on my main stereo system with a Nakamichi RE-10 stereo reciever with fantastic and impressive results. I am not using the supplied spikes and have not put sand in the cabinets. I like plenty of bass and I am impressed with the bass available from the comparitively small size of the bass driver as ordinairly I don't care for anything less than a 10 inch bass driver.Midrange & vocals are excellent as well as the high end. Imaging is good and the overall build quality is very good. The 5+ is bi-wireable although I am not using them in that capacity. I have now stacked the 3+ bookshelf versions on top of the 5+ floorstanders and it makes a perfect match for even greater bass. It cost me an extra 50 to get these speakers back to the USA on the airline but it was still a bargain. As far as I know, Eltax is not marketed in the USA.

I bought these speakers only after seeing them in a half price sale, and with cash burning a hole in my pocket, i linked them to a Cambridge A1V2.0 amp, and my PC with only Intel Celeron on-board sound card. Since then, only 4 months ago, i've been so impressed, and bitten by the Hi Fi bug so bad, that i now use my Liberty 5's with a Technics CD player and tuner, and i've upgraded to a Soundblaster Audigy 2 Platinum soundcard to get the most from them. I'm still hoping to connect them to a DVD/home cinema system.
