They are great! No complaints here. I was upgrading from my original aiwa speakers (made by sony) in my home entertainment system. The difference is amazing. Highs mids and lows are all great. I always recommend a powered sub woofer, I do have one. However, if you get these speakers you can get by without one.
My listening interests are varied. I have listened to Kiss, ELO, The Hollies, Peter Frampton, Supertramp and some classical on these speakers so far. I have also viewed a couple movies using them. All sounded great. "Do You, (Feel Like I Do) sounded GREAT! All the ELO was crisp, clean and clear. The only "booming," as mentioned in the other review, that I heard was while listening to "Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress" by the Hollies. However, it did appear to be a bass sound that was appropriate with the song, not anything abnormal. But then again, it may just be different taste.
Oh, and the picture shows the speaker as looking more of a grey than black. They are black, not the grey like the picture shows. that is good since my tv and all my entertaiment system units are all black.
My advice is you cannot go wrong with these. If anything changes I will update.
There are a lot of really awful tower speakers in this price range, but don't lump Sony in this group. Instead of dialing in booming bass and sizzling treble to make them sound exciting in-store (and inevitably fatiguing at home), the designers have managed to coax accurate, undistorted sound out of a pedestrian parts budget. The good design choices and economies of scale let this mass-produced speaker compete on an even basis with recognized mid-fidelity brands.
These speakers are fairly neutral, accurate, and low-distortion. In other words, no frequencies are grossly accentuated or absent. Instead, the sound character is shaded a bit towards crisp and dry, rather than warm and lush, which is good for articulation of dialog in home theater applications (where I imagine most of these will end up, rather than in two-channel music systems).
The bass is adequate and decently tight for a bass-reflex (ported) design, but if you're after full-range sound and want loud, undistorted bass, you'll probably want to add a good subwoofer (I use them with a subwoofer that costs almost three times what they do and consider it money well spent). The midrange is commendably flat, and while treble lacks the air of an audiophile speaker that costs ten times as much, neither does it beam, sizzle, or glare like many budget tweeters inflicted on the listening public.
Three other things about the sound: First, these speakers sound their best at moderate-and-higher volume levels, where the bass develops some punch.Read more ›
I was becoming dismayed until I heard the ssf-5000's (the single woofer model) and decided that I should give sony a shot. I hunted down a pair of the 7000's and wow. I almost couldn't wait the 10 days it took to get them home.
It's amazing what a good set of floorstanding speakers will do for an audio system. The sound from these suckers is just so BIG. Granted it's not Klipsch or Polk, but for someone trying to build a home theater system on a budget, you will not be disappointed. These will fill a medium sized room with rich sound.
I don't have any complaints about these speakers at all. Everything from Guitar Hero II to Transformers to Mozart sound rich and full like they should.
If you have the money to spend these probably aren't going to do it for you, but if you're looking for speakers you don't need to take out a loan for, these are it.
Cut to the chase: these speakers require a heck of a lot of EQ'ing (and power) to sound GOOD. You most likely will need a subwoofer to assist in most situations. They are a perfect set of cheap speakers to complement a smaller home theater system (im not talking like 2-inch cube Panasonic bundle kits, but a nice polk or JBL mid line 5.1 speaker system). In buying these speakers, its a great addition for music listening. Standing alone, not sure the Sony's can work a room without the help of other components or a fantastic top-shelf amp. For those that dont care or just want something tall to fill an entertainment setup, the Sony's are perfect.
Verdict: good budget buy, but do not expect the world out of the box.
I now own the SSF-5, 6, and 7k. 5's are hooked up to a separate receiver, the 6's were hooked up to my central receiver (a $1600 Yamaha) and the 7's took the place of the 6's. I am impressed by the frequency response of the 7's.Read more ›
