Bottom Line:   
Great speakers when properly installed. At least 20 inches from the back wall and 30 inches from the side walls. You have to put the on 18 inches stand and connect them with good wires at least grade 16. You will be surprise. Of course your amp should be a good one with a minimum of 60 watts per channel.

Bottom Line:   
Paired with a Yamaha RX-360 receiver and Yamaha CDX-560 CD player in a small apartment the sound is very nice, even on FM radio. I'm even thinking about adding the smaller JBL 500 speakers to the system. Certainly for the price I paid ($200.00 Canadian) I am impressed. I did listen in a listening room at the store and they sounded better from across the room, but the sound at home was much better than the store demo.

Bottom Line:   
Great addition to my existing system. It sounds much fuller and clean. While watching movies, in surround sound, you feel like you are in the theater. Limp, Kid, and Blink all sound kill on these speakers.

Bottom Line:   
They are really good speakers overall. I just started building my system but they still sound great. I really like the bass they have. The only minor flaw is the treble response. i would recommend them to anyone looking for excellent speakers at a low cost.

I also use a Technics receiver SA-EX110, as well as a Technics SL-PD6 CD changer. The speakers work great with both of them.
