Amazingly accurate speakers. I own a pair that I use in the bedroom with a SMSL AD18. Really impressive audio reproduction for Jazz and Blues. Pat Metheny's Album Missouri Sky is my reference album, and I am extremely happy with this purchase. One note: I got mine from a local dealer in MN for just over $550 w/ tax shipped within a week direct from the manufacture, so this isn't that amazing of a deal imho.

As someone who recently got into home theater, how does these compare against the JBL Studio 530 that I just picked up on sale? Also, would you recommend anything over the 530 and this S1?

In this price range (~$650/pair) there are two very good choices: Klipsch RP-600M and Magnepan LRS. They are hard to beat.

The bookshelf speaker market has gotten very competitive and crazy good the last few years. These better be the best thing since sliced bread at this price. Based on the lack of media, reviews etc., I would have serious reservations. Are they twice as good as the Elac UB5's (can be had for less than half $), or significantly better than the Klipsch RP600M's, or even the KEF Q150's (currently $300/pr.)? I seriously doubt it. Very tough sell, good luck!

These are developed by Planet of Sound. It's a Canadian company/store that started producing their own line of products (Mies). The mies i100 started on Kickstarter and Mies now have a full offering of products. In my area, Planet of Sound is the place to go for brick and mortar audiophile gear when it comes to turntables. As per Company: "Mies® is the house brand of Planet of Sound. We are a retailer, wholesaler and now manufacturer of high quality audio components, based in Toronto, Canada. With over 7 years in audio sales and system consultation, we are experts in sound and we love vinyl. We've long traveled the world to visit the major audio shows in search of the few products that are exceptional and now we wish to fill some of the gaps in the market ourselves. "
considering you are still going to need a power amp, the price is not that impressive. You can pick up very good, active, bi-amped speakers for around this price. Though these look a lot better than most of those. And believe it or not, looks of a speaker are a consideration if it's in your living room, not your music studio.
"And believe it or not, looks of a speaker are a consideration if it's in your living room, not your music studio." How horrid.
yeah some of us out here living with bfs/gfs. Who are going to kick your ugly speakers out of the living room. No matter how they sound.

Yeah the price seems "ok" but I wonder if these can keep up with the jamo c93 II, klipsch rp 600m, or the lrs maggies... doubtful.

When doing a Google search for "MIES AUDIO S1 BOOKSHELF SPEAKERS" and the top hit is this very same MD listing (and damn little else), I begin to sense there's something a little fishy going on here...

Mate, you just seem to spam the comments section of every drop on this site with smartass remarks. I personally like your smartass remarks here as most the other comments are just dull. But don't pretend that you're serious about buying even half the products you comment on. (And it you are serious about buying half the products you comment on, that's a whole other set of problems.)

Fuck no! I sure as hell don't buy anywhere near NINETY PERCENT of the products I comment on (more like not-very-much-percent). The reasons for that should be fairly obvious--half of it is shite, and the other half just isn't in my sphere of interest. None of that means you or I can't spot a lame drop, and over-priced item, or a good bargain (on those rare occasions when all the planets align). But none of that prevents me from having an opinion about all of it ;- ) and that's all I'm doing: expressing a particular opinion on this or that. Not really so unusual--having opinions, right?
