I've got a pair of these and I've been trying to decide whether I like them or not. I bought a very nice pair about a year or so ago after reading about them on various forums. Many raved about them and how great they are for rock and their ability to crank at high volumes. That's great and all but I want music produced faithfully and as well as possible. It's got a 15" woofer and a horn tweeter. Other folks say they're good but not a great audiophile speaker. They were very affordable back in the day and I really don't care about the philosophical stuff about whether they were crap or a Radio Shack product, etc. I'm trying to make a non biased determination on their sound. After about a year of on and off listening I still can't decide whether I like the way they sound or not. Yes, they will crank loudly and they sound ok to me. I tried some jazz and the bass is pretty good with clear definition. The highs have a graininess to them, however, and it's not very clear sounding. They also sound a bit congested to me overall. For classical, they sound good. For rock, they sound pretty good too. But something about them that I can't put a finger on. I've placed them on the carpet where they sound much better especially in the low end. I've also placed them on stands where they start to sound congested. All the reviews at Audioreview were enthusiastically positive but it seems the owners of these are either 15 year olds who like speakers that have that high volume crankability factor or 50 year olds who were 15 when they originally bought them! My gut feeling and my ears tell me these are ok speakers but not superb or even fantastic sounding. I've used them with tubes and SS receivers. The reason I'm asking is to decide whether to keep them or sell them. I'd hate to get rid of them and later regret that I did but I've got way too many speakers!
