Bottom Line:   
I have had these for several years and remain one of my favorite bookshelves.
their small and blow away most the polks i have listened to of their era. I am a polk fan and they don't even sound as warm as these side by side..
these may have small drivers but in a small room you only can fit so much.
You don't even need a sub-woofer with these. the bass is rich tight and clear for a small speaker the mids are clear and the highs are sharp the imaging for a speaker of this size is very good.
Are there better bookshelves out there? yes but for what you get for the price their worth the money now you can buy them less than 100 bucks on ebay or Craigslist if your lucky.

Conclusion

Being a audiophile I'm extremely picky I do own a pair of 103.2 kef reference aka named one of the most wanted audiophile speakers..i am also comparing these to 103.2s between sound quality imaging etc. They don't compair to them BUT for a cheap kef bookshelf the coda 7 is nice and dont cause listening fatigue like some of the other speakers i have owned.

Bottom Line:   
I absolutely LOVE these speakers! The sound reproduction from them is so accurate that it's damn scary sometimes. Like for instance if there's the sound of something breaking from the TV it honestly sounds like it's coming from inside the house. I've had these speakers for 14 years now and compared them to a couple dozen other rear bookshelf speakers when I was purchasing them. I bought them at a very large electronics store in downtown Los Angeles so they had a very large selection to choose from and I thought these sounded the best out of all the rear bookshelfs I was comparing. Since my system is 14 years old now, it's time to upgrade my equipment and front speakers. But I love these speakers so much I'm going to design the system around them.

Bottom Line:   
Nice, dark sound. I bought these in 1997 from shop and have been very satisfied ever since. Still look and sound like new.

If room is correct and placed near walls, the bass has some nice punch. Furthermore, if you can tune treble up the situation is becoming good.

I had mini stereo system from sony when buying these. The system changed radically. With artificial bass boost in the machine, the bass always suonded clean yet powerful also at low volumes, not irritating in any means.

Overall, sensitive of the amplifier and also room makes difference.

Bottom Line:   
Amazing speaker. Go get as long as they last.

The combination:

SMALL PAPER CONE + BIG & LONG BASS PORT IN A SMALL CABINET

is awesome for small rooms. Reminds me of an opened-baffle airy feeling but with the punchy bass and staggering midrange. Most suprising speaker I have ever listened to. Would compare to x10 more expensive speakers, yet haven't heard a bookshelf to beat that

Bottom Line:   
I was very lucky, I got them form a garage sale today with a marantz Tuner amp and cd changer.

These speakers are lovely , they seem to cover the entire range, I have been listening to opera this afternoon and I wish I had bought these a long time ago. I am selling my technics system now that cost me an arm and a leg.
