Strength:

EVERYTHING ABOUT THEM...... AND THEY CAN HANDLE ALL THE POWER YOU CAN GIVE THEM, WHILE STILL HAVING THAT REALLY CLEAN SOUND...

Weakness:

UNAVAILABLE

I HEARD THESE SPEAKERS IN A ROOM THAT WAS TOO SMALL, AND WHEN I BORROWED THEM FOR A LARGER ROOM THEY ACTUALLY SOUNDED EVEN BETTER.. I PURCHASED 6 PAIRS (NEW IN BOXES) FROM A STORE ONLINE, WHICH WAS THE ONLY PLACE I COULD FIND THEM.. I ACTUALLY CLEANED THEM OUT OF THE CR 85'S, SINCE THEY HAD ALREADY BEEN DISCONTINUED.. I AM STILL LOOKING FOR 4 MORE PAIRS... BUT NO ONE HAS ANY LEFT... I HAVE SEARCHED EVERYWHERE AND FOR THE SIZE AND PRICE, THEY CANT BE TOUCHED.... EXCELLENT SOUND, QUALITY, AND VALUE.....

Strength:


Rich, detailed sound. Very eficient speakers. Will work with whatever you have. Low cost in comparison to other models.

Weakness:


These are very tall bookshelf speakers. I got the cherywood and it looks a bit cheap.


I just bought these speakers and am a casual listener. My wife and I have a surround sound system but primarily watch DVD concerts and listen to music. These speakers are incredible. The music produced is rich and detailed and the sound is balanced. Unlike my prior Denon speakers, the sound is not drowned out by base. These are great speakers and I highly recommend them.

Strength:

Great Performance with all music types Good Value

Weakness:

Can't buy on-line Could have better posts

I listened to a ton of speakers prior to buying these. Some of the competition included: B&W 602, Energy C-3, Vienna Acoustics,Infinty and Polk (can't remember the models). The Boston were definately the standout. I preffered the Boston sound to speakers costing twice what I paid for them. They have a very full and natural sound.
