Bottom Line:   
I bought these speakers in1993.
I heard them in a show room and instantly fell in love. I had never been with another speaker before that. i have listened to others but never gave it a second thought. I have loved them since the day we've met. We have grown old togehter...
But after 20 years (and a foam replacement) we still apreciate each other very much... They still give me rich deep bass, smooth mids and precise highs. And I just upgraded my old tired SIMA amplifier to bi-amp them with a new Denon AVR through brand new Mogami cables that I bought just for them.
I hope they'll stay with me for another 20 years ...at least...

Bottom Line:   
These speakers are everything the reviewers have said. They flat out require a quality amp to deliver decent sound and will glaringly show any deficiency in system design. Rock can occasionally sound "soul-less" but a good jazz or blues recording will make you sit and smile. In listening, it's clear these speakers were built with jazz or classical music in mind. The midrange comes through as light and accurate, occasionally making rock sound washed over. The 6.1 needs a sub to help deliver the deep low frequencies, and the speakers can sound a touch boomy, especially if placed incorrectly. Overall, one of the best sounding low price speakers I've heard, but not without it's flaws.

Bottom Line:   
I love the clarity of these speakers. If a recording was done poorly, these speakers let you know it. I run them using a Carver TCM15CB amplifier, and they handle every ounce of it!!!! Voices are clear, highs stand in a place near heaven, and the bass is tight and impressive. To top it off, they're visually beautiful. Elegant, well-built, strong performer. Highly recommend it for those who listen to well-balanced music. If your in it for crazy db's and distorted, pounding bass, these aren't your speakers. But throw a little Chris Issac or Dave Matthews, and these speakers will make your spine tingle. After what must be 3 solid years of usage, I AM PLEASED!

Bottom Line:   
I power my Infinity' s 6.2i with an Arcam delta 290. The combination matches very well. The Arcam is very rytmical and so are the infinity's. The hights are as clear as they can get. (You have to like the clear sound!) The bass is deep and tight. If you know the cd Stonehenge 4 from Hatfields end, you know how deep these speakers can go. Incredibly deep.
The soundstage is very wide, spacious and precise. you can just point out where the instruments are. Love that! Speakers in the pricerange of $2000 and up are more precise, but I just can't affort that right now. The price I paid for the Infiniy's is rediculous, so...I'm not complaining!
The tweeter and midrage is adjustible on the speaker. I just kept it on neutral. I don't like manipulating sound. If you own a good amp, nothing should be adjusted. They're just fine the way they sound. The whole idea of built in that equalizer was that people could adjust their speakers to the room they are going to put their speakers in. (imagine a stone room. What happens to the hights? And in a room totally covert with carpet? PRECISE!)
To be short,
I love these speakers. They're well balanced. Crisp hights, low, low, low bass. (keep your neighbours in mind!) Clear voices.
One advise: get good cable! Sounds a lot better with good cables, well every audio lover knows that!
