Bottom Line:   
This is a follow up to my review as alligator007. I need to give these speakers the 5 ratign they deserve.
While hesitate to call myself an audiophile, I will admit to having a critical ear. And after three plus years with these speakers, I can not justify replacing them with anything under $1200.00.

Bottom Line:   
This is a follow up to my review from 2 yrs. ago. My system now consists of the Sapphire 87's, Sapphire Center, Sherwood 6108 A/V receiver, Boston VR500 sub, Wharfedale 7.2 Anniversarys for the rears, I really cannot say enough about how much I enjoy the sound from these 87's. They are really a pleasure to listen to and when all 6 speakers are connected there is a good sense of envelopement and naturalness to the sound with no exaggeration from any part of the musical spectrum. I listen to mostly new age and jazz and movie sound. They're good for rock and classical too but not at very loud levels. I would sum the Wharfedales as being very neutral, easy to listen to speakers which can be had for cheap on Ebay.

Bottom Line:   
These speakers are a mediocero unit. The Midrange is weak. Bass is okay, but a sub is needed. The grills are a disaster. The sweet spot for listening is also very small. They are however inexpensive.

Like everyone else I got these from Ubid about a year ago and also like everyone else I paid way too much for shipping but whatever, at $230 these are a real nice deal.

Bottom Line:   
Very good sounding speakers, kind of laid back. highs and mids are excellent for the price, bass was a little muddy. By far the best pair of speakers for the price. Works best on easy listening music or pop, headbangers go to Best Buy. Have moved on to B&W cdm-7nt (wonderful)
