EXTREMELY happy for the money
Wanted to revive my 300 LP collection, so I dusted off my Rega TT and went at it. I used a so-so Rotel receiver to power some ancient Audio Source mini bookshelves and it sounded "Tinny." So, I went on a quest to get better speakers...didn't want to spend much. Am I ever glad I went with these speakers, sight unheard. First thing, when I unboxed, I was impressed from the get go on packaging. Next was the weight of these little babies....nice solid build and the cherrywood finish is superb....as for sound....great midrange/vocals up front and natural. Top end is slightly, and I emphasize slightly bright....may be due to Rotel or my Denon 301mk3 cartridge going through a Schiit Mani phono preamp....needs to be sorted out. Since they are bookshelves, the bass is accurate, but rolls off in the lower frequencies (after all, they are bookshelves with a small woofer)....once I get a decent integrated amp and play with some other phono stages, I think I'll get the sound I want....then, maybe, someday, find a deal on a powered subwoofer to finish it all! For the price, I love these things....took a little while for them to break in, but do they "sing" and there's no fatigue.....now I remember why I love anologue/vinyl! YMMV, but these are a keeper, for a long time.......highly recommend
Would recommend to a friend.
