Bottom Line:   
Already having a Sound System hard to beat.Yamaha NS200ma & Infinity RS325 speakers. HK 3270 Receiver and a back-up Technics SA Gx330. Sony NC675P CD/DVD unit. My problem is that I live in a wealthy area, (But I'm a broke dog). I am surrounded by Goodwill's, Habitat for Humanity's an Salvation Army's. They are inundated with high end stereos. I've got great gear stacked to the ceiling in my spare bedroom thanks to these fine charity establishments. I recently picked up a pair of perfect Polk R30's for $50. I hooked them up to a 100 watt Denon AVR681 I found at Habitat Humanity for $30. Low end was definitely absent. I picked up an Infinity TSS-450 Sub for $22 at the Salvation Army which cured a simple problem. Anyone who dislikes their 2 way Polk Audios for lack of full sound will turnabout 180 degrees by using a quality Sub.

Bottom Line:   
Picked these up used. Initially I was impressed it seemed as though it had great build quality, small footprint and its MDF seemed more dense than other comparable models. Hooked them up as mains to a Denon 7.1 Channel Receiver. Eventually I had to move these to the rear, it just couldnt stand as Mains. Not audible at low volumes, At higher volumes, it seemed to distort, and even some of my Bookshelf Speakers (Klipsch SB-1 and Polk Audio Monitor 40) outperformed these towers. They sound good, but they just dont have the clarity and effortlessness that it takes to be the anchors of a living room home theater. The R30's are better suited in a stereo configuration in a Garage or Lounge room as a secondary setup.

These are great speakers for people looking for a LOUD home theater setup. Any looking to enjoy music with these should look elsewhere.

Bottom Line:   
i think these are the best speakers, under 250$ there are out there. im running them from a 1974 pioneer reciever and the sound quality is amazing, the bass is loud, but clear and they dont loose the sound quality no matter how loud the volume is, not to mention they look great too. i would highly recommend these to anyone
