Bottom Line:   
I don't find it necessary to simply reiterate the opinion of the vast majority of reviewers. I have lived with my Stratus Silvers for more than 15(!) years and though I have gone through all the iterations of available upgrades to my outboard equipment, I have left two things be...my braided Kimber Bi-Wire speaker cables and my trusty Stratus Silvers! They sounded great by comparison to the comparable Kef, Totem, Polk and B&W speakers I auditioned before purchasing and when I found out I had the opportunity to buy a pair of Floor models with at least 100 hrs. of break-in time for a $400 discount...I jumped!
I'll leave it at this... 54 posted reviews with 55 4 or 5 star reviews (heavily weighted toward 5 stars) and TWO low , 1 or 2 star reviews! You decide who's on target and who's smoking crack!

Bottom Line:   
The psb silver for 450$ used the price is excellent . Highs are excellent and pleasing, lows and bass are tight, Mids are not exceptionally pronounced, the produce a very clean sound that is superb! . I moved them from a room with little upholstery to a room with some carpet and fluffy couches and drapes, and in there they sounded the best. They are a VERY FUSSY speaker as far as positioning but the soundstage is excellent.

Bottom Line:   
I must apologise to Silveri's fans because for about eight months lots of injustice was done to these great performers. The (RCA) interconnect directional arrow from pre-amp to power amp was facing the opposite direction i.e. from power amp to pre-amp. This has been corrected and I must say the sound has improved tremendously. Wide soundstage, deep bass, longer throw in mids and highs. They are more enjoyable on Jazz Trios- piano, drums and double bass. Also impressive on congas/percussions, try Herp Alpert's Stormy Sunday from the album Passion Dance.

I must however acknowldge that while the Siveris are excellent overall performers the tweeters are sometimes too bright and forward and the mids a bit muddy on voices. After hooking up the Van Den Hul "The Name" and the Transparent Cable "MusicLink" interconnects and the Van Den Hul "MCD-352" speaker cable on Rotel RCD-1072, Rotel RC-1090 and Rotel RB-990 much improvement was realised.

Silveri's shines more in larger and open rooms (mine is a 48 square metre) and a well treated room gives the Silveri's the deserved high end status.
