I listened to these speakers for a few months, and I enjoyed them. But then upon hearing another set in comparison found these to be very plain and unexciting. The other reviewer said they were very balanced-sounding, which may be the reason for them sounding plain to me. Usually speakers with extra bass and treble seem to sound better. I'm going to try to get them back from a friend and give them another listen. I got them cheap from a Cambridge Soundworks outlet. They seem to have disappeared from most retailers stock.

Strength:

Nice sound

Weakness:

High price but you get what you pay for

Pair of T200, Cambridge soundworks, Creative Labs, about $700

About 50 lbs per. The workmanship is fine. The mahagony veneer makes it even look like a single piece of wood hallowed out.

I ran a tone sweep from 32 Hz up to 20 kHz and noticed no (zero) volume changes. Not to say there isn't, just none stood out. I believe it's spec'ed (if you can find any) at +/- 1.5 dB over most of the important range. I believe it. I was especially shocked (!) at how much output there was at 35 Hz.

I don't know why 5 and 1/4" drivers are spec'ed because they are more like 4 inches including the surround! Yup, only 4 inchers, but 4 of them for the bass. OUtput was very, very loud in this mostly dead 12 x 17 room from a Denon AVR-485 (about 80 W/ch x 7). I source from a computer, using an X-Fi elite pro (also Creative), using wav, flac, wma-lossless, m4a, etc., out the 5.1 analog outputs (very fine DACs on this soundcard -- elite, you know).

I bought the B-stock. I can't tell, and I believe these usually are labelled B-stock (I've bought B-stock here before) so maybe they just sell the regulars if no real B-stock is available. They list here at $800, but online it's $999.
