Strength:

Very crisp. Nice soundstage. Have proved adept at both music and HT. Nice construction.

Weakness:

A little odd looking. Need stands to get full sound out of them.

I read a review of these by Home Stereo Buyer's Guide (http://www.mbquart.com/reviews.htm#Creview) and was very intrigued. When they popped up at Onsale.com for $199.00 each new, I could not resist.

I haven't regretted my decision since. Crisp highs, nice midrange and adequate bass ( I have active sub hooked up to augment) and a very live and airy soundstage.

For HT, I picked up the QL C304 CTR center channel as well. It's a little bright at times, but matches the speakers well.

I'm moving up to Magnepans because I can never leave well enough alone, but if you can find these at a good price, don't hesitate to pick them up.

My equipment:
Marantz SR-7000 (Soon to be replaced by SR-18)
Sony DVP-S7700 DVD/CD player (great)

Strength:

Titanium tweeters just can’t be beat. Mids are truely exceptional.

Weakness:

Bass response is lacking just a bit but that is what a separate sub is for.

I do not listen to rap much so I do not care for the thundering bass that this pair lacks. But like I said before, that is what a separate sub is for. I wouldn't want that kind of bass from these speakers anyhow. There is enough response on the low end to put a smile on my face everytime I listen to them. The highs and mids leave me breathless. I am running these off of a Harman Kardon AVR 7000 and boy does a good receiver make a world of a difference!

Similar Products Used: I can't say that I have heard a better set of speakers for the price I paid for them.
