Energy - These speakers really got that!
on January 29, 2014
I bought these speakers an year ago during Black Friday sale for a good price. I happened to have 2 A/V receivers Yamaha V673 and Onkyo NR-509 and tested both by hooking and calibrating (patiently) one after the other! These speakers sounded phenomenal with both the receivers. You must resist judging them until they have played-out for about 50 hours (as the manufacturer recommends), as you will start to appreciate the quality of music that comes out of these speakers.
I watched the movie King-Kong by hooking it to Yamaha 673...boy..it was pumping my chest when the dinosaurs were running/falling and my family were amazed at the quality of movie viewing experience they got! For the price (even 100 more), I would recommend these speakers.
Some people have complained (or contemplated at least) about the sub-woofer power, but for me it's more than sufficient. Mind you, I have a 24 x 14 living room ( a good size) and these speakers fill the sound quite sufficiently. They looks classy as well.
One thing you might wanna try is keep your sub-woofer in a corner slightly behind your left speaker, the low frequency effect was something...ended up a getting a gentle complaint from the neighbor :-) . It is now hooked up with my Onkyo NR 509, which I got for a steal price, thank to Amazon ! These speakers sound great with it as well, especially the music. I bought a pair of speaker stands from an on-line company starts with Mo and ends with rice for just 11 bucks and it serves the purpose.
All in all, a fantastic set of speakers at an affordable price. Highly recommend this!
