    Mr.

    The purchase was made as a result of JBL SPEAKERS that were purchased 50 years during my university days, The Martin-Logan are their replacements. Their design is sleek and the quality of sound is excellent.

    Logan's Run to my taste

    These speakers impressed me so much that I decided to use these smaller ones as rear speakers and go ahead and replace my Bowers & Wilkins front speakers with the larger Martins.

    The sound is so open and uncluttered, with a high end that is so low in distortion that they're easy to listen to for hours even at a fairly high volume without ear fatigue.

    The bass wowed me... coming from such compact cabinets with smallish woofers, they give you more bass than you might expect especially per watt applied.

    Definitely recommended speakers; I doubt that many folks would be disappointed by them as far as the sound is concerned.

    Worth it!

    Incredible sound for this small of speakers, very organic sounding paired with a Martin motion 8i center channel to create a great soundstage, got them 50% off open box worth the money!

    Outstanding sound

    I bought a set of Martin Logan Speakers. The Motion 201GB, Motion 301GB center channel, Motion151GB bookshelf, and the MotionAFX Dolby Atmos speakers with a Dynamo 600X Subwoofer. I love the clarity and details with music and sports. With the surround sound, it sounds like you're right at the stadium when listening to sport events. The music details are incredible. I recommend Martin Logan speakers very highly.

    I own the Denon AVR2600X receiver.

    SVS is awesome!

    Before this SVS 5.1 system, I had another brand 5.1 setup which lacked midrange and had very muddy low bass. These SVS speakers solved all issues I had previously. Now I have very tight, punchy bass that I can feel. The surrounds are very clear and responsive. I can hear things in songs I never heard before.

    Excellent sound, great looks!

    Paired with Yamaha Aventage 1080, Q650 center channel, they are excellent speakers.

    Excellent clarity, almost full range (I like lots of bass so still running a subwoofer, but you could easily skip the sub)

    Surprised there aren't more reviews

    The black is almost matte finish metallic grain, very nice look. I wanted the walnut but we already have several different wood grains they would not have looked right.

    Very manly with grilles off, low key with them on

    for reference, photos next to 82" Samsung, they are big

    Phenomenal speakers

    I have always been interested in the KEF line specifically for the Uni-Q design. I have had a little over 200 hours listening time with the Q950 floorstands and I must say that I am very happy with my purchase. The price cannot be beat when comparing sound, look and quality. I had a audiophile friend come over for a listen and we both agreed that the KEF Q950s reminded us of a Paradigm bottom end for low frequency and a diamond series B&W tweeter mixed into a beautiful floorstands. I love the walnut finish but I do wish that the magnetic grille came with the speaker. I have these floorstands running off of a Marantz AV7702 for processing and a Outlaw audio amplifier. If you like a strong mid bass speaker and a tight low end bass then I would not hesitate to pull the trigger on the KEF Q950s

    Best Speakers I've Ever Owned

    First time ever owning KEF speakers and I was blown away. The sound stage is huge and spread evenly out throughout the room so you don't get stuck with just a single sweet spot in the middle of the pair. The clarity and depth of sound is truly remarkable. These were the ideal speakers to bring my prized vinyl collection to the next level. Highly recommended

    Fun!

    Great speakers! I use them strapped to the top of my golf carts for surround speakers at summer pool parties. The automobile finish blends right in with my Bentley Golf Carts paint job. I marked the ease of use down a little because of the weight. A little hard to put on top. I have got to go and do some day trading to help pay for the speaker cable to run to these. Have a nice day.

  • DALI Oberon 7 Floor Standing Speaker - Light Oak
    Description

    The big-hitter of the family, the DALI OBERON 7 brings it all together for the audio aficionado. Standing over a metre tall, this floorstanding speaker is built for epic performance without compromise. Two of the larger 7-inch, SMC-based woofers provide the mid-range and bass power to support the ultra-lightweight soft dome tweeter. This, combined with the large but elegantly styled and capacious cabinet, delivers the very best in resoundingly deep bass and an expressive performance that can fill the largest of rooms. But despite its stature, the OBERON 7 retains the detailed, balanced sound DALI is famous for – and will not fail to impress with its ability to render any musical genre in a natural and lifelike manner, even at lower volumes.

    4 Features
  • CONTEMPORARY DESIGN: The rounded edges and rustic fabric of these new DALI front grilles add a lighter and more contemporary visual look to the OBERON series. This look is enhanced by the elegantly shaped aluminium base mounted on the two floor-standing models.
  • PATENTED SMC: The iron pole piece of the OBERON woofer magnet is crowned by a patented SMC disk - minimizing the negative effects of the iron. The use of the SMC disk greatly reduces mechanical distortion, which lowers third order distortion.
  • WOOD FIBRE CONE: The OBERON woofer features a wood fibre cone with a blend of fine grain paper pulp, reinforced with wood fibres, which creates a stiff, light-weight and well-behaving structure. Creating unfiltered sound with high accuracy.
  • EASY TO POSITION: The OBERON series has been selected to achieve a wide dispersion pattern. This ensures a well-integrated sound, even when listening at a significant off-axis angle. An added benefit is seriously reduced harmonic distortion and diffractions causing frequency distortion.

    Excellent sounding speakers - no compromise

    These are fantastic speakers. I listened to multiple high-end speakers before buying the Prime Pinnacles, and the sound easily rivals and even surpasses speakers costing hundreds, or even a couple thousand dollars more - no exaggeration. I'm using them solely for stereo music, connected to a good CD player, turntable and integrated amplifier. The imaging is outstanding, with a wide and deep soundstage. It sounds like you're in the room with the performers.

    I like an even response across the board, preferring a more laid back sound than something really bright. These speakers are great for achieving that. The highs are clear, but not fatiguing. The mids come through very well. You can hear sounds in the music that you wouldn't with other speakers. Old music is new again. With three cabinet-separated woofers, the bass is substantial and tight, but not overpowering. No need for a subwoofer, as these get to very low frequencies very well. I have the speakers placed fairly far apart in the room and less than a foot from the wall, and the bass is not boomy.

    Lastly, I really like that these speakers are compactly constructed, so I get outstanding sound without having two huge monoliths that take over the room. My wife was very pleased with the size and the piano black cabinets.

    Superb!

    Replaced my Definitive Technology soundbar and wireless subwoofer with a pair of these powered with a new Denon AVS650 receiver. I have about 25 hours of break in so far and these speakers are superb for the price. I find no need to add a subwoofer to my system. I never really cared for 5.1 or 7.1 home theatre sound. It distracts me. With just these 2 speakers I get excellent stereo sound for both movies and music. The room is filled with sound and you think their is actually a center speaker the way they send out sound. When watching TV or a movie the clarity of the voices is fantastic and music where they really shine. Classic rock, jazz, bluegrass and country all sound great. I was originally going to get the Klipsch Reference Premier speakers but they were out of stock so I took a chance on these. Great decision. Money well spent!

    More than enough sound

    I love these prime pinnacle towers! Paired with ultra center and satellites for surround the sound is great! These speakers have a full sound and are able to fit in the space I needed. They are heavy, but that's because they are made well! SVS has a great product.

    Fantastic Speakers

    Very impressed! Didn't know speakers could sound this good. Very detailed and transparent. I'm hearing things in music I've never heard before, and these are tracks I've been listening to for 30 years. The only problem is that the KEF R7s are so transparent they are making the weaknesses of my receiver very apparent. So now I am in the market for an amplifier, such a terrible problem to have. Thanks KEF, another fantastic speaker.

    Amazing pair of speakers

    Did a lot of research on which speakers I wanted mainly for music (2 channel) and my search stopped here. I originally was drawn to KEF after I heard the Reference 3s at Best Buy and was blown away! Now that’s a different league in some aspects (mainly price)

    I got the R7s in white to go with my set up. I also have this paired with a Hegel Amp (H120 to be exact) could have gone for the H190 and more power but that’s even more expensive. Also use a Rega Planar 3 and Moon 110LP v2 phono stage.

    These speakers sound so good. It’s hard to put into words but the clarity and detail are impressive. Female voices really shine on these. Also Jazz and Classical. I haven’t felt the need to add a sub yet as these have pretty good bass on their own. I would go with RELs if I had to.

    To sum up, these are amazing sounding speakers and very beautiful to look at. Get them if you can!

    Didn't realize what I was missing

    From the second I hooked these speakers up and listened to them I couldn't believe how detailed the sound was. I didn't realize what I was missing. These speakers are great for my home theater but even better when I listen to my favorite song. The detail of the instruments is amazing and the range is incredible. I would definitely recommend these speakers to anyone who has an ear for music. I have always admired the quality of a Klipsch speakers and I wasn't sure if I wanted to spend the extra money on them but I have no regrets.

    One More Check on the Bucket List!

    I've been buying hi-fi and video gear for 45 of my 60 years on this planet. I even worked in the industry in it's heydays in the late 70's - mid 80's and have always enjoyed audio & video as a hobby. Over the years I've owned hundreds of audio & video components from cassette tape decks to laser disc players, from turntables to reel-to-reel decks, even my share of VHS and Beta VCR's. And lots of stuff in-between. Along with that I have owned a vast array of loudspeakers starting with my first serious speakers - a pair of RSL Model 8's. Those were followed by the then the legendary Pioneer HPM-100's and Polk Model 10's. I've even ventured to the exotic - purchasing a pair of Acoustat 1+1's and Carver AL-III's back in the early and late 90's. But alas, I got married, had two kids and the budget for hi-fi gear took a bit of a back seat.

    So it was with true enthusiasm, and a nice tax return, that I made the move to buy my new Martin Logan EM ESL-X speakers in April! And I was not disappointed. It was like reliving my youth and being able to enjoy real high-end sound again. I matched them with a Martin Logan EM ESL-C center channel, Dynamo 1100X Sub and 4 of the Motion FX for surround. It makes an amazing 7.1 package and I am enjoying my music and movies like never before.

    The level of detail, imaging and nuance are incredible. As cliche as it sounds, and I am as skeptical as anybody, I am hearing things in my music that I have never heard before. The sound of the electrostatic panels is revealing and mesmerizing - and like no other speaker I have ever owned. The complimentary subwoofer, center channel and surround speakers make it a must have for my movie viewing.

    I can highly recommend all of these speakers without reservation and truly consider this a check off the old bucket list and look forward to years of musical and movie enjoyment!

    It's worth noting that I bought these during the height of the pandemic and Magnolia-Best Buy gave me great support online and over the phone in spite of all the store closures and distractions. The purchase and delivery were flawless with the exception of one defective woofer grill that was swiftly replaced. A big thanks to Magnolia-Best Buy for all their support during a very trying time!

    These speakers are ridiculous. The sound is crisp and rich. I have a denon powering these. Is a pair of these work better than a sound bar. I highly suggest going with these even in apartment. There is no heavy sound pressureIs making the neighbors upset. Is there worth every penny. I can hardly wait to expand into a full surround set up when I have my own home.

    Amazing introduction to Martin Logan

    We owned the entry level ESL's and decided to upgrade. We now have the ability to bi-amp which makes a world of difference. 250 for mid's and highs and 250 to power the sub. Together with our EM-C2 and Motion FX surrounds, the sound reproduction is now full of sounds we were not able to hear before. Highly recommended.

    PS: Make sure to power these babies properly. They can take it!!!

    Truly amazing...no other comment needed.

    On a side note - they say there's a 100 hours break in period, and although the speakers are amazing from the beginning, I've noticed the projection of the sound field field appears to have widened with use. You can close your eyes and it believe the music is live in the room it's so real. We love jazz, and piano (and all instruments really) sound as if the player is in the room. Movies sound better than ever as well. Sub woofer isn't optional though. There's bass and it's very natural. However, to get the theater low end bass effect, that one thing isn't there. And no speaker in my experience takes the place of a sub woofers. I have two standalone subs and they complement the speakers beautifully.

    Great Pair of Speakers

    I listened to the ESL models in the store and took a leap of faith in ordering these. I was not disappointed. They sound better and tend to have less of a 'sweet spot' the ESL's had. I went to the store to basically buy some B&W CM10's, but I asked the salesman what else he had. I was impressed by the ESL's. I will say these speakers are 'bright' with very tight high/mid-range. That's what I prefer, but I realize that might not appeal to everyone. If you like the ESL's in the store, you'll like these even better. It was a great purchase for me. Very happy.

  • MartinLogan - Illusion 3-Way Floor Center-Channel Speaker - Dark cherry
    Description

    Masters of the Illusionist school of art perfected trompe-l’oeil, employing painting techniques that mimicked actual objects so vividly that “Illusionism” blurred the boundaries between art and reality.It could be argued that this kind of illusion is the goal of any loudspeaker, especially a center channel speaker. A center channel speaker is the most important speaker in a multi-channel audio system, tasked with reproducing the most important audio information for imaging and realism: cinematic dialog, anchoring effects, and a large portion of the front stage speaker information.

    Amazing dynamic center channel

    When I purchased my Martin Logan 15A's I had to wait several months for my center channel and the Illusion was well worth the wait. Having never heard the speaker before I questioned if it made sense to wait for something this critical in my system. This speaker handles the highs incredibly well and masterfully handles the mid-bass and lower ranges equally well. It creates an amazing soundstage. This is, by far, a major upgrade to my prior center channel from another well known brand that Magnolia sells. I would make the purchase again and have owned the speaker for about 3 years now. So, if you wait a few more months to save up just know that it's well worth the wait.

    Incredible speakers........surreal sound

    My best friend got a pair of the Walnut finished Kendalls and I got to hear them at low, intermediate and at EXTREMELY high levels listening to everything from old Traffic and Led Zep to Motorhead to Mother Love Bone and Nirvana. My opinion? If I died and got into heaven there would be a listening room just for me set up with a pair of these speakers and perhaps a Denon receiver of significant power and I would spend eternity having my hair (one has a full head of hair again in Heaven), blown back. Clear, incredibly sensitive and these speakers re-create the actual experience better than any speakers at even 3 times their price that I have EVER heard. My goodness these are incredible speakers and worth every penny and minute of your bank account and allotted time.

    SVS is awesome!

    Before this SVS 5.1 system, I had another brand 5.1 setup which lacked midrange and had very muddy low bass. These SVS speakers solved all issues I had previously. Now I have very tight, punchy bass that I can feel. The surrounds are very clear and responsive. I can hear things in songs I never heard before.

    As a musician I wanted quality sound in a surround sound format. These speakers fit the bill. I had Geeksquad set up a new receiver and balance the speakers. Couldn't be happier

    Beautifully Designed, Love the Ferrari Red (Rosso Fuoco) Extremely well Packaged, larger than expected, the Woofer Addition adds an enormous amount of bass, the very large sound stage and overall I would recommend these speakers to anyone who wants sound and style.

    Upgraded from the ESL model. After the break in period, they sound fantastic. The powered bass drivers are amazing, no doubt aided by the ARC equalization. Overall bigger soundstage, excellent clarity and balance. Driving with a Parasound A23 that has 125 wpc at 8ohms, 225wpc at 4ohms. More than enough power since woofers are powered. Loving the musicality.

    Give these speakers a listen

    I'm very happy with my ELAC Uni-Fi 5-1/4" speakers. I replaced a pair of Martin Logan Motion 12's because I wanted the midrange to appear larger and more life-like, and the ELAC's accomplish this. Stereo imaging is very good, as well. They look great. I use these speakers as part of a 5.1 system, with a matching ELAC center speaker (great speaker), and Definitive Tech surrounds.

    Don’t hesitate

    The sound coming out of these speakers was awesome. I demoed the Def Tech, B&W as well as the MartinLogan. But for the price I chose the Elac over the B&W. Def Tech and MartinLogan are not close. The sound is clean crisp and can get loud. Great surrounds. The only gripe was the feet had disks to guard the floor spikes. Those carpet spikes dug a few holes into my wood flooring when I missed the disks. This should come with rubber feet.

    A little overwhelming when opening box

    I was little surprised when I opened the box regarding their size. Everything always looks smaller at the store. I hooked them up to my audio receiver and was a little disappointed at low volume. Then I turned up the volume and the world opened up in quality and spaciousness! I realized these speakers want power and lots of it. So be prepared to have the volume up to get the best out of them.

    These bad boys deliver!

    I had question should I get these with 6.5” or 8 inch driver and I can say 6.5 inch is more than sufficient to rock the house. I thought if I buy these and they were not a good fit then I can exchange for 8 inch if needed. I am very happy with my purchase. Purchase price I paid 400.00 a piece. Klipsch had 20 percent off sale from $msrp of 500.00. I highly recommend Reference Premier line. Skip the reference line because it doesn’t have same built quality or superior sound and tones. I have these paired to center rp404c and I’m extremely pleased.

    These RP6000 are anchor of my 3.1.2/5.1 system. 500C, SPL100 and R41SA driven by Onkyo TX-393. My prior speakers range from Frazier VII to 4300 series JBL powered monitors. These speakers have more life. Probably most over looked in RP klipsche line. Barely need the SPL100 these create massive amounts of bass for music from 6" driver. Having owned Frazier before and learning Klipsch and Frazier had same philosophy of recreating sound is what convinced me try Klipsch I am not disappointed. For price and performance in a 15x13 room these RP6000 are perfect fit.

    Stellar Performance!

    Installed pair of RP-6000F towers and RP-504C center channel in my dedicated media room one week ago. Have spent several hours adjusting, listening, and comparing my previous in-wall speaker experience with the my new Klipsch speakers. The most simple way to describe the sound performance is the content in music and movies is "Alive and exciting!". I have been in the custom AV installation business for over 2 decades and fell like these are the best value out there. You don't have to have a lot of power to create a large amount of sound. My wife and I have been using the sound-space for over 9 years with another brand of speaker. (F.Y.I.- My wife does NOT enjoy my technology obsession.) She stated that she liked the aesthetic of them and loved the clarity of dialog.

    Good for smaller rooms, struggles in a big room

    These speakers have a great look to them, and are very easy to set up without banana plugs. The sound is very filling in a small room, but they may struggle in a larger open-concept living room. I pair them with a Denon receiver and have to go between 45-50 volume to get them loud enough. I paired this with an RP-404C and the combination is pretty great for a casual movie watcher.

  • Review by sdmarsh, 10 out of 10
    Excellent speaker at an affordable price.

    To begin with, my speakers were delivered by a freight company. The temperature outside at delivery was about 68 degrees F. I unpacked each speaker from the shipping box that the B&W 603 S2 Series Anniversary Edition arrived in and let it sit overnight before even opening the factory box so that the speakers could acclimate to the temperature in my house. By the way, the factory boxes that B&W use are seriously the best quality boxes I've ever seen. Nice thick and sturdy cardboard and inside the speakers were cradled very close cell styrofoam, with the speakers wrapped in a foam type blanket. The speakers we so well protected, that you could ship them around the world and there would not be any damage done to the speaker inside.

    After I let the speakers acclimate to my home for 24 hours, I opened up the boxes and proceeded to attach the stand to each speaker. The stand attaches to the speaker with 4 screws provided by B&W. The stands measure 14 1/2 D x 12 1/2 W x 1 H. The stands are made of a very high quality of MDF, and I assume the speakers are made of the same high quality MDF. Each speaker come with 4 spikes that you can use if you place your speakers on carpet. Also provided are 4 rubber feet that can be used instead of the spikes if you were to place the speakers on anything other that carpet. The spikes/rubber feet are screwed into the bottom of the base and each spike/rubber feet can be adjusted in case your flooring is not level. The grills are held in place with magnets, so you can have them off, or on depending on your preference. They are very easy to remove, or put on. The magnets are hidden under the "skin" of the speaker so there are not any unsightly holes, or hooks to see if you listen to your speakers with the grills off.

    I read that some people have asked what the difference is between the previous model B&W 603 and this new B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition. According to B&W's website, the new 603 S2 uses a "refined and upgraded version of their proven Decoupled Double Dome tweeter". Also, according to B&W's website, the 603 S2 Anniversary Edition "benefits from a new optimized crossover design featuring carefully selected components".

    I have not heard the previous B&W 603 speaker, so I can't compare it to the new 603 S2 Anniversary Edition. All I can say is that for the money that this speaker costs, it sounds way more expensive than it is. I listen to a wide variety of music ranging from big band, Frank Sinatra, jazz, classic rock, and quite a few European bands like Within Temptation, Nightwish and Xandria to name a few. The European bands I mentioned, their sounds are called Symphonic Metal. In my honest opinion, it's not really metal, but rock. So basically it's rock (metal) with a full symphony. And mixing the two sounds together are terrific in my opinion..

    I initially hooked up the B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition speakers to my 5.1.4 home theater system with Marantz SR8012 receiver, Paradigm Reference Studio 100's for the fronts, Paradigm Reference CC-590 center and Paradigm ADP 390 for surrounds, SVS Prime Elevations for Atmos, and SVS PB12-Plus for my sub. I've also added an Emotiva XPA Gen 3 amp for the 3 front speakers, with the Marantz powering everything else.

    After removing the the front main Paradigms, I hooked up the B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition speakers, re-ran my calibration in the Marantz. I decided that I'd sample some various DVD Audio discs and SACD's first of all to get an idea on how the B&W's would sound with music using just the B&W's and then with the B&W's / subwoofer combo. I ran the discs through my Oppo 203 player. Listening to some Doobie Brothers, Styx, Alan Parsons Project and Fleetwood Mac.

    Now remember, these speakers are brand new, and not broken in yet. B&W recommends a minimum of 15 hours for their speakers to break in so that "the mechanical parts are able to attain their intended design"characteristics, according to the owners booklet. With my first listening of just the 603's by themselves without the sub, the speakers sounded very nice, but not great. Since the midrange driver is 6 inches and the two bass drivers are 6 1/2 inches each, don't expect lot's of bass from the 603's. The B&W 603's have a small 2 inch port at the bottom rear of the speaker to help aid in the bass department. And while this helps add some additional bass, I think the speakers sound much better with a sub. But I do like a bit more bass than the average person I guess. B&W also includes a foam plug if you wish to plug the rear port. I chose not to do that.

    I decide to fully let the speakers "break in" before doing anymore listening to music or movies. Very easy to do, just leave the radio going all day when you're at work. I did this for five days, so I put on 40+ hours of break in before seriously listening to the 603's again.

    This time, listening to the same music I listened to on my first initial evaluation and just listening to the speakers without the sub, they sounded like they had a tad more bass which was great and the bass was much tighter as well. But more, the tweeters along with the midrange really came alive. A cd that really lets the B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition speaker come alive where you can REALLY HEAR all the very subtle instruments and sounds is The Definitive Collection by The Alan Parsons Project. In the six weeks or so since I've had the B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition speakers, I've listed to that particular cd three times. It just sounds excellent on the 603's.

    Now onto how the B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition sound with movies in my 5.1.4 home theater. I auditioned many movies but some to mention are all of the Star Wars movies, Jumanji (with the Rock), all of the Avengers movies, Jurassic Park, and the Terminator series. Honestly. the B&W 603 did a very good job, but not as well as my Paradigm Reference Studio 100's. The Paradigms have larger speakers (3 bass, 1 midrangs) and a larger 3 1/2 port. The 603's were lacking in the lower and mid range department compared to the Paradigms. The tweeter was about equal with the Paradigms. If I did not know my sound system and I was adding the B&W 603's without ever hearing my front Paradigms, then I'd say it was a good match.

    If you could set up your home theater sound system with the B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition speakers for all your speakers, I truly think you'd have a terrific set up where all the speakers are matched. The floor standing 603 S2 Anniversary Edition, like what I have for the fronts, with the B&W HTM6 S2 Anniversary Edition for the center and the smaller 607 S2 Anniversary Edition for the surrounds. Then just add your sub.This would make an excellent sound system for BOTH music and movies.

    Overall, I highly recommend the B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition floorstanding speakers for their clarity, especially in music department. The fit and finish of the speaker itself is outstanding. Something you would find a speaker costing 2-3 times more than what the B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition speakers cost. And while they are truly not too expensive for the average person, what you'll hear from them sounds like a speaker costing 2-3 times what this speaker costs.

    Perfect Speakers for a Home Theater

    The thing I am most impressed about with these speakers is their ability to provide complete sound at relatively low volume levels. I love watching my movies with very loud sound, but during those times when loud audio isn’t appropriate, the speakers do an excellent job bringing out all the sounds of the movie in lower volumes. Essentially, the sound reproduction coming from these speakers is excellent when cranked up, and equally excellent when played at lower listening levels. They manage to have a fullness that includes excellent mid-range, clear highs, and dynamic and tight bass. Speakers with similar capabilities cost two to three times as much. And you do not need a high-end amp to get excellent sound from these speakers. If you continue reading below, you will see that they produce great sound when powered by a modest home theater receiver. Overall, this pair of speakers perform well above other speakers at this price range.

    Additional details about my home theater setup include a matching Bowers & Wilkins HTM6 Anniversary Edition center channel speaker, an entry level 7.2 receiver (Onkyo TX-NR696), a MartinLogan Dynamo 600X 10-inch subwoofer, and two rear Sony surround satellite speakers, all connected by 14-gauge speaker wire. This is definitely not a high-end setup. However, the speakers do a excellent job delivering a faithful reproduction of the audio signal. The main reason is because they are pretty efficient at 88.5 db. Meaning, they do an above average job of converting power (sent to it by the amp) into sound. The speakers themselves are rated between 30 and 200 watts at 8 ohms. My receiver/amp is pushing roughly 45 watts per channel, which is on the low end of what these speakers can handle. I can only imagine what they would sound like with a more powerful amp. And since I live in a small house with a living room roughly 12 by 18 feet, the supplied power of my current amp is more than enough.

    In summary, here are some pros and cons I found while using these speakers.

    Pros:

    -Excellent mid-range

    -Dynamic and tight bass

    -Clarity of highs

    -Large soundstage, meaning the speakers allow you to hear sounds coming from different areas (e.g. location of instruments in music, sound effects in movies, etc.)

    Cons:

    -The highs can be a little strong or bright. These speakers have a premium tweeter mounted on top. They produce highs with great accuracy. To adjust this, it’s very easy to lower the highs by decreasing the treble or by adjusting the equivalent frequencies within the amp’s equalizer.

    -These speakers produce great bass by themselves, but it doesn’t hurt to add a subwoofer to your system if you’re looking for the really low-end frequencies only a separate subwoofer can provide.

    For those interested on how I estimated the watts per channel of my receiver. I used the general rule of taking the total watts of the receiver’s power supply, dividing it by 2, then dividing that number by the total number of channels the amp supports. So, in my case, my receiver’s power supply is rated at 635 watts. I divide that number by two to account for the watts needed to power other functions of the unit. That leaves 317.5 watts remaining to power the 7 channels. By dividing the 317.5 by 7, I get roughly 45 watts per channel.

    And one final note, the speakers come with a stand (plinth) that is optional. They’re meant to help stabilize them. I was leaning towards not attaching them because I could have saved a little space, plus I prefer the look with them off. However, since I have an active little one, I decided to attach them. I am so glad I did because while I was setting them up, I accidently bump into them pretty hard while backing out from behind my TV. The stands saved them from toppling over. That would have not been the case otherwise. Lesson to self. I’m more likely to cause damage to them versus my kid.

    The Bowers & Wilkens 603 S2 Anniversary Edition floor standing speakers are outstanding from every perspective. Both visually stunning as well as an immersive and fully engaging audio experience.

    A small warning while unpacking / setting up. These speakers are no joke and weigh in at around 75lbs per speaker. You may need to bring a friend to help you unbox and setup.

    The rest of the setup experience is a dream. These speakers come with a very nice base that you need to mount to the bottom of the speakers. They come equipped with either rubber feet for hard flooring (like mine) and spikes for carpeted flooring. Once installed, the speakers looks like they "float" above the stands and look fantastic. The weight of the speakers ensure no vibration is caused by any loose box. The stand is also extremely firm and connects tightly to the speaker with 4 screws.

    If you choose to leave the magnetic speaker covers off, you will be mesmerized from the top down. Starting at the top you will see the signature Decoupled Double Dome tweeter which has the "600 Series Anniversary Edition" text written around them. These tweeters offer sharp and clean highs which reproduce very accurate and immersive sound, whether it be music or a movie. Anything requiring a high fidelity, high octave range is reproduced with ease from this bad boy. Bowers & Wilkens has an overall warmer sound vs super sonic sharp, which I find very pleasurable. These do not make your ear "bleed" but still provides an accurate and precise sound.

    Moving down the speaker you're next presented with the shiny silver Continuum cone. This is one of the best distinguishing features of this speaker both visually and sonically. This speaker is used to produce the mid-range sounds from and is the most used part of the speaker. This is arguable the most important aspect of any reproduction of sound when it comes to speakers and often overlooked by lesser quality options. Here B&W produced an astonishing mid-range with a wealth of detail that will have you turning your head to question weather that sound came form the speaker, or something else in the room.

    Below that are two low-frequency cones that produce that low, wonderful bass response we all love to hear. These 600 series speakers product an excellent bass without the necessary need for a sub, however, a sub should be added to complete the experience. The bass produced by these floor speakers however are necessary in completing the entire sound stage package. Bass is booming yet clean. If you are able to provide these speakers the necessary wattage to get them up to their peake 200W 8ohm performance, you will notice the bass does not drop out or crackle under the pressure. Whether it be a movie, TV show, hip-hop, jazz, or rock, these speakers are up to the task of reproducing the sound the content creator had in mind.

    I was highly impressed with the amount of volume these speakers product when watching Disney's "The Mandelorian". When a light saber scene came up, and the saber was moving from bottom to top of the screen, you could hear the volume ad tiny detail in pitch giving the audio "height", which only a 3-way speaker can produce. It was truly a game changing moment hearing this effect for the first time after previously hearing the same scenes from different speakers.

    B&W also includes foam plugs that can be inserted into the rear driver hole. This is incase you cannot position the speakers far enough from the wall and get hear too much bass reverb from the rear. I did not have this issue so I left the foam insert removed. It is nice B&W include such a fine detail in their products. These speakers are truly intended for the audiophile individual who wants to tweak every last detail to maximize their experience.

    If you are in the market for a good set of speakers, and the price on these does not scare you away, I cannot recommend these enough. Though you can buy cheaper speakers for sure, the cost of these are an otherwise bargain given the performance and quality delivered. It is easy to hear why Bowers & Wilkens have been a household name in high end audio for so long. They've knocked it out of the park with these anniversary edition speakers.

    Real honest sound

    Bowers and Wilikins is one of the oldest UK speaker companies out there (since 1966, now owned by Sound United) so they do have a lot of experience. Their speakers are known for a their true unbiased sound, excellent characteristics and minimalistic design.

    600 Series Anniversary Edition towers are not an exception! Built in a compact 40x13.5x7.5 enclosure they do pack a serios punch! 3 channel design (1" aluminium twitter, 6" Continuum cone mid range and two 6" paper bass drivers) with an upgraded crossover - they do sound bigger then they look!

    High frequency is extremely clear and true to the record, mid range is loud and crisp, bass is remarkably powerful!

    I did my tests using 2 setups - music room, as a pure 2 channel setup + 12" 500W subwoofer and my home theater room - a complete 7.2.2 Atmos setup. B&W 600 S2 shined in both, especially in a high and mid range - sound clarity was just outstanding.

    You will need a subwoofer if you are using these in a home theater setup. Speaker connections - there are 4 terminals on the back of the towers (for bi-amping) that allow for either spade connectors or banana plugs (just remove the plastic cap before inserting banana connector). Measurements using Room EQ Wizard did confirm speaker performance in 28Hz-22kHz range (web site claim up to 33kHz but I can't measure nor possibly hear this :)).

    Speakers do come with optional pedestals to improve stability, all necessarily hardware to attach to the pedestals as well as carpet spikes and hardwood floor rubber legs, plus an optional foam plug for a port on the back. Recommended amplifier power - up to 200W at 8 Ohms.

    Overall - it's a solid performing tower in it's range, outstanding clarity of highs and sufficient bass makes it a great choice for a 2 channel music or home theater application.

    Great sound and an excellent value!

    I have been using the B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition speakers for the last two weeks and every day sounds better than the one before! I have the speakers bi-wired from my Pioneer Elite receiver and paired with the matching B&W 603 S2 Anniversary Edition center channel without a subwoofer. These speakers have been able to handle absolutely everything I have been able to throw at them! Movies have exceptional clarity and incredible dynamic range, allowing you to hear every detail and providing deep bass, crisp mids, and clear highs. Music was an even more incredible experience, bringing an incredibly immersive listening experience and an incredible sound stage. The speakers are able to provide more than ample bass for all kinds of music, even the most bass heavy varieties. The build quality is excellent, assembly was easy and intuitive, and the magnetic grills allow for a clean appearance with or without the speaker grills. These speakers look and perform as though they should cost at least twice as much!

    I would highly recommend these speakers for anyone looking for an incredible sounding tower speaker for their everyday home theater and music listening that brings an incredible audiophile level of sound at an incredible value!

    Best Floor Speakers for the Money, Period

    Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) has released their 600 Anniversary series speakers and what an impressive set of speakers they are. Contents of this package is the 603 S2 speaker (1 per box), base mounting hardware, base, magnetic mesh screen, 2-size foam plug for bass port, and installation/build instructions. They come with a 5-year warranty on parts & labor.

    Disclaimer: I have 2 of these 603 S2 floor speakers and the B&W HTM6 center channel for this anniversary series hooked up with a Klipsch subwoofer, rear Infinity surround speakers, and a Yamaha RX-V685 7.2 channel receiver. I am replacing a 20-yr old set of great-sounding and vintage BOSE 701 floor speakers and BOSE VCS-10 center channel.

    PROS:

    -----------

    * Great look, well built, solid chassis, construction materials used are of high quality.

    * I set up my speaker sound using the given Yamaha receiver YPAO microphone. This should be done whenever speaker sets are changed out. After going through that sequence of events, I ended up increasing the center channel volume along with rear speaker volume in order to hear the surround items better and especially the talking in movies better. Once adjusted, these floor speakers really brought out the sound of some blockbuster hits including Wonder Woman 84 on Christmas Day, Gladiator, and Soul (Pixar movie). I played a few other hits on HBOmax and the sound was phenomenal.

    * Sound was very crisp on left/right scenes as surround sound dictated. You can tell that the crossovers are doing their job because specific sounds are coming out loud and clear on each individual woofer. The highs from the tweeters really couldn't be better.

    * I listened to some digital music including piano, R&B, classic rock, special effects, and country. With each genre, I felt like I was in the middle of a concert. This was done without the use of the surround sound speakers. It was that good.

    * The magnetic speaker grills are easily removable and look good on OR off. Be careful though, because these grills are extremely thin and made of plastic and could possibly break easily.

    * Attaching the base was quick and easy. Hook-up was easy as it's only 2 wires in most applications.

    * These speakers do allow for 2 separate amplifier connections (2 red posts and 2 black posts) if needed.

    CONS:

    -----------

    * This is a first - I cannot think of a single "con" for this product. They are THAT good and THAT impressive.

    OTHER OBSERVATIONS:

    -----------------------------------

    * Make sure you allow for about a week for the sound of your speakers to fall into place with the "breaking-in" period. The speakers need to operate at softer/normal levels before sending them a great deal of power. This includes getting the speakers acclimated to the temperature of your home.

    * The speakers themselves will be more dependent on which receiver you use rather than the speaker itself for incredible/great sound. If you use a subpar receiver/amplifier, your sound will be that as well, regardless of speaker quality. If you want these speakers to cry out to you in a good way, invest in a good receiver with ample power. Even though these speakers provide a great balance of sound, including bass, it is still, in my opinion, better to have a separate bass subwoofer (or two for some rooms) to aid with sound quality in the extreme low-band frequencies.

    * These speakers come with both carpet spikes (to hold in place) or rubber feet if used on hardwoods/tile. Personally, I like the rubber feet even on carpet. They are so heavy (each is ~60 lbs), that they are not moving anywhere. If they need to be moved or adjusted with rubber feet used, it can be done easily without having to pick up (if using the spikes).

    * These speakers are installed onto a wooden base. This base is static and does NOT swivel.

    * I did not have a need for using the foam bass woofer plug provided.

    CONCLUSION:

    ===================

    Unlike other products like TVs, receivers, computers, cars, and appliances, SPEAKERS are a very simple thing to actually "use". You literally hook them up with 2 wires, and the way they sound is really more dependent on the receiver you have driving them. They might sound good or bad depending on your receiver and sound setup characteristics. Please use a quality receiver to make these things sing! If you don't, then you are losing a ton of specific sounds these speakers can provide at high quality. After 20 years of my vintage BOSE 701's, this upgrade was well worth it and I highly recommend these incredible-sounding speakers.

    Upgrades Have Led to an Amazing Speaker

    I have owned a few B &W speakers over the last 10+ years, and I have always been impressed with the beautiful midrange and the crystal clear, detailed treble. My first pair of B & W’s was the 683s, with the sharp looking yellow Kevlar midrange and grey woofers. Having gone through a varied assortment of big box store speakers and never finding something that satisfied, the original 683s were a revelation. I heard nuances and intricacies in my music that I had never heard before.

    After a period of time I moved to the CM series of speakers and held on to those for several years until a move forced me to sell most of my equipment off. Recently, I decided to get back into the world of budget, high-end audio, and purchased a pair of the 603 S1’s (from 2018). Just like the B & W’s I have had in past years, the 603 S1’s sounded fantastic. The midrange, instead of the colorful Kevlar of the past, was now B & W’s silver Continuum driver, an upgraded driver that does its best to remove unwanted distortions from the midrange and provide the listener with a more realistic experience. Paired to a Denon receiver, the 603 S1’s provided wonderful sound but did have their shortcomings. At times the bass was slightly bloated, and as a result the mid bass suffered. The midrange at times came off as a bit congested, and depending on the source material the treble could be sizzling hot. Still, they were my favorite speaker. At least, until the 603 S2 Anniversary Editions came along.

    When the opportunity arose to receive a pair of these speakers via the Best Buy Tech Insider Network, a program that provides products free of charge from vendors to members in exchange for their unbiased review, I leaped on it. Unboxing the S2’s and comparing them to the S1’s, there isn’t much different from them from a cosmetic viewpoint. They are both the same height, width, and depth; they use the same cabinet and plinth; and they have the same amount of drivers. The Bowers and Wilkins logo on the S2’s has been moved up slightly on the front of the speaker; instead of being at the bottom above the plinth, it now sits just below the bottom bass driver. Another cosmetic difference is the tweeter housing, which now has the words “600 Series Anniversary Edition” etched on the ring. It looks very cool... The grills have remained the same, and are attached magnetically. Other than that, you wouldn’t be able to tell the Series 1 and Series 2 a part.

    Internally, Bowers and Wilkins has swapped out the crossover for an improved version in order to improve speaker clarity. The crossover has been upgraded with higher-quality parts, and in my opinion, has made a world of difference in the 603’s sound. A crossover makes sure that the different frequencies of sound are sent to the right driver, splitting the audio signal that comes in via the speaker cables and sending it to the appropriate woofer/tweeter. A low-quality crossover can lead to smudging of sound, or a muddying of the content as it gets sent to drivers that are not intended to produce the signal they are being asked to produce. If I’ve bored you already and you don’t want to read anymore, you can stop right here with my personal opinion: The upgraded crossover network in the 603 S2 Anniversary Edition makes this the speaker to beat in the $5,000 or less category for value and sound. Yes, that’s my opinion, and I’m sticking to it! I’ve listened to the 700 series side by side with the 603 S2 Anniversary Editions, and I feel the 603 S2’s hold their own quite well. I would not have said that about the 603 S1’s.

    Let’s get down to listening! After I received and unboxed the new 603 S2’s, I connected them to my Denon AVR-X4700h receiver and played Spotify on a loop for 72 hours to break them in. After an additional day or two of light listening, it was time to get down to business. All music testing was done without a subwoofer and bypassing room correction. The Denon was left in Pure Direct mode. Movies were listened to with Audyssey room correction on and the 603 S2’s joined with a HTM6 S2 Anniversary Edition center channel speaker, a pair of Polk T15’s for surrounds, a Martin Logan sub, and four Sony Atmos modules. Cables to the 603 S2’s were Audioquest Rocket 11’s, and music was provided by SACDs and DVD Audios played via a Sony UBP-X800 or streamed via the HEOS app and a network-connected hard drive. I experimented with speaker positioning and found that the best results in my room were 6” off of the front wall, 9’ apart, 9’ away from the listening position, and only slightly toed in. Surprisingly, even being that close to the wall, the 603 S2 bass never got boomy. It remained defined no matter what material I threw at them.

    First up was Loreena McKennitt, a Celtic/New World artist with a gorgeous voice and a love of throwing as many unique instruments as possible into a mix. One of her songs, Marco Polo (from Book of Secrets), is a real challenge for speakers. There are something like 46 instruments being played at any given time, and on the wrong set of speakers, Loreena’s voice can be piercing and all those instruments get blurred together. The 603 S2’s handled this track with ease. I never once felt fatigued, and the song sounded as good as I had ever heard it. I reached near 95dB and the S2’s never lost their composure. Next up was Loreena’s Gates of Instanbul, a track with deep, impacting bass that generally requires a subwoofer to be heard. When the bass hits began, and I heard how deep and accurate they were, I had to get up and check to make sure I hadn’t somehow turned on the subwoofer. It was off. The 603 S2 Anniversary Edition speakers can get low and they sound great doing it. I’ve never heard this level of low frequency ability in a speaker, not since I owned a pair of Definitive Technology super towers.

    I cycled through my faves, songs I was intimately familiar with. Pink Floyd’s Meddle may not be their most popular album, but the track Fearless is an acoustical masterpiece. As I listened, I turned to my son (who was like, I want to hear these too!) and said, “I don’t think that drummer is using sticks. He must be using brushes!” I’ve heard this song a thousand times and never picked out that nuance. My son looked it up on Google, and said, “You’re right, he’s using brushes for this song.” The definition and clarity provided by the 603 S2 Anniversary Edition speakers is astonishing. Pink Floyd’s The Final Cut has a track called Paranoid Eyes that mixes tons of background public noise such as laughing, talking, and walking in with Roger Waters’ vocals, a piano, and bass. The 603 S2’s placed each sound within the mix expertly, and I could even hear Roger Waters’ lips smack as he opened them to sing. And when the last few measures of the piano occurred near the end of the song, you could feel the bass coming out of the grand piano that was used.

    No matter what I listened to, the experience with the 603 S2’s and music was sublime. Fleetwood Mac’s Never Going Back Again revealed the sound of the picks on the guitar strings. Tusk, off of the Tusk album, and performed with a marching band, gave great weight to the toms in the mix, you could feel and hear the impact of the stick on the drums. A very cool experience. Elton John’s Curtains, off of Captain Fantastic and the Dirt Brown Cowboy showcases the 603 S2’s ability to demonstrate how awesome a good drum kit can sound. And finally, my ultimate torture test for any set of speakers is Tool’s 46 and 2, a song that can practically melt your ears on a set of speakers that isn’t up to the task. Compared to the 603 S1’s, the S2 Anniversary Edition speakers rocked this song. About midway through the track, when Danny Carey’s double kick starts jamming, and he is rolling from one side to the other on his toms/snare, you can hear every hit, every impact, and a subwoofer was not needed.

    I should mention the soundstage here too. The 603 S2 soundstage was wide, so wide I would swear that I had my surround speakers on. I felt like in each song I could place exactly where the instruments were at, and singers’ voices were dead center. The 603 S2’s had the ability to sound like a surround sound system with just two speakers. They filled my 15’ by 25’ room with ease.

    I couldn’t tell as much of a difference between the Series 1 and Series 2 speakers when it came to movie watching. We watched the opening sequence of the Fellowship of the Ring and also the opening sequence of James Bond’s Casino Royale. Both, in my opinion, are reference soundtracks to use to judge systems by. The 603 S2’s had no issues belting out the sounds and music provided by these movies, and I could find no fault in them.

    In case you can’t tell, I loved my experience with the 603 S2 Anniversary Edition towers. These speakers are insightful, impactful, detailed, and are an amazing value. Some might ask if it is worth the extra money, if you have a pair of the 603 Series 1’s, to upgrade to the Series 2. For me, the answer is yes. The new crossovers create a speaker that competes with the 700 series. Bass is more defined, the congestion in the midrange from the earlier model is gone, and the treble is sweet and clear. I exceeded 85 dB for the majority of my listening, and as I mentioned before, I hit 95 dB more than a few times. Through it all, the 603 S2’s held their composure and provided one of the best listening experiences I have had with a speaker thus far. I highly recommend them for music listening, and they have the added benefit of working great for movies too.

    Amazing Speakers

    TLDR These are amazing speakers and if they fit your budget, just go for them.

    I have been a fan of B&W for many years now. I first experienced them in college when my downstairs neighbor got a pair. I was blown away by their sound quality and just how cool the looked. Years later, I was able to purchase a pair of BW 683 S2 speakers for myself. These were great speakers that I was very happy to own for many year.

    Fast forward to 2020, I couldn't pass an opportunity to upgrade to the 603 S2 Anniversary Edition. I have read some reviews indicating what an improvement the switch to the continuum driver and the upgraded crossovers are. However, I didn't expect to notice such a big improvement from my old speakers.

    I have owned the speakers for about a week now and the amount of detail that comes out of these speakers are amazing. When listening to acoustic guitar, you really can hear the vibrations of each string. Drums really come to life and you can hear the hi-hat open and close. These speakers also produce an amazing amount of bass. While I currently am using these in conjunction with a separate subwoofer, you can easily get away without having one.

    My current home theater setup includes a pair of the BW 603s, a BW HTM6 S2 center speaker, Rythmik Audio LV12R sub, and Denon X4300H receiver. If you are using these speaker in a home theater setup, I highly recommend also getting the accompanying HTM6 S2. It really blends perfectly with these speakers.

    MartinLogan Motion 60XTi

    This is a very nice upgrade from my old Definitive Tech BP7001SC main speakers. The BP7001SC were a top-of-the line DefTech speaker. Each BP7001SC has a built-in 10 inch powered sub.

    But, the MartinLogan 60XTi are definitely an upgrade. The MLs have tighter more controlled bass. The ML high end is very smooth and articulate. And the most obvious difference is the much better stereo imaging produced by the MLs.

    I am driving the MLs with a Krell KAV250a amp. The KAV250a has no problem with the 4 ohm load of the MLs. Krell is known for its awesome bass. And, with the DefTechs, I was losing some of the Krell's bass production due to the powered sub of the DefTechs.

    Considering that the MLs are actually a little cheaper than the original price of the BP7001SC, the MLs are a real bargain for someone looking to upgrade.

    Great but test before you take home

    I love the Martin Logan set that I bought that includes 60XTs for the front, 50 XT Center, 800X subwoofer, and ER series for surround and back surround.

    However, one of the 60XTs had a non functioning tweeter and mid range driver and its taken more that 5 weeks for the geek squad to repair it. I have not yet gotten it back, but want to caution customers that you should have the speakers tested in store before you take them home.

    I've scored quality as a 3 because of this.

    Bowers & Wilkins - 700 Series 3-way Floorstanding Speaker w/ Tweeter on top, w/6" midrange, three 6.5" bass drivers (each) - Gloss black
    Description

    Bring studio-quality sound to your living room with this black Bowers & Wilkins floor speaker. Its solid housing minimizes mechanical vibrations, and the top-mounted tweeter offers stunningly accurate high-frequency sound. This Bowers & Wilkins floor speaker has three bass drivers and a vented box system for producing dynamic low-frequency audio.

    8 Features
  • Carbon Dome Tweeter: Pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail resulting from a Carbon Coating on our aluminum Double Dome Tweeter. The closest performance to our Diamond Dome Tweeters.
  • Solid Body Tweeter: Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances. You'll enjoy smooth and clear highs.
  • 6" Continuum Midrange: Continnum is a woven material that blends control with flexibility. The result is breathtaking clarity right where you need it most- the midrange. Hear voices, guitars and other instruments in a whole new way.
  • Aerofoil Bass Drivers: Bass drivers need to be light, stiff and not ring like a bell. Aerofoil features incredibly light materials molded into a shape resembling an airplane wing for optimal rigidity and damping. Instead of hearing one-note bass, you'll hear colors and textures with power and control
  • Driver Decoupling: Decoupling places a shock-absorber between the cabinet and drivers to short circuit detail smearing distortion. The result is greater clarity and pinpoint imaging by reducing distortions that soften and blur what you hear.
  • 3- Way Design: Drivers are optimized for their specialized roles in reproducing high frequencies, mid frequencies and low frequencies. This results in better performance for all sounds.
  • Flowport: Reduces air turbulence for clearer bass by dimpling the flared port.
  • Magnetic grille: Remains acoustically transparent while protecting the speaker's components.

    Best I’ve ever owned

    These are the best speakers I’ve ever owned. I purchased these as an upgrade from the Bowers and Wilkins 603’s ( best decision ever ) . I was blown away by the deep base and clear highs associated with 702’s . It’s like I’m in the room with the band . If I close my eyes I can actually see where every band member is standing while playing their instruments. With my older albums I hear things I’ve never heard before on albums I grew up listening to in the 70’s and 80’s .

    Absolutely Stunning

    After only owning these for 24 hours I've decided to dump my girlfriend of 5 years as these are the only things I need anymore in my life. The sound reproduction is off the charts. Bowers and Wilkins really put a lot of effort into the tweeter design as the high's really shine. The Continuum driver is a massive upgrade over the CM series Kevlar driver. Can't tell you how much of a difference they sound in the home than at the store.

    Incredibly clear sound

    I first heard these speakers in the Magnolia section of Best Buy and couldn’t believe the clarity. Until I looked at the price. Not cheap but I was looking for the best sound I could afford and these were a once I a lifetime splurge. I worried about how’d they sound outside of the studio in a house with high ceilings. I needn’t have worried. Once I got them set up and put played music from my phone I was even more impressed. I didn’t care for the white or gloss black when i found they also cane in a rose wood, that’s what I ordered and they are gorgeous! To say I’m happy with them is an understatement. Each time I listen I’m amazed at how distinct each instrument sounds.

    Experience What You Have Been Missing

    I agonized over retiring the set of Polks I used for years but finally decided to purchase these after hearing them in the Magnolia Home Theater department at Best Buy. I can still remember the moment as it was the first time I had been moved by such effortless clarity in the higher registers, solid bass, and indescribable mid-range. I was no longer 'listening' to the music but experiencing it. I connected to the music through the B&Ws in a way I didn't know was possible. If you are looking for the absolute best in audio at this price point sit down and listen to 702s2.

    What can I say.. lets see

    Full disclosure, I power my setup with a Rotel RA-1572

    First and foremost.. I upgraded from the B&W 600 series.. the new 600 series.. the ones currently available from B&W.. and those sounded great to begin with.. so I happen to stumble upon a screaming deal on a pair of 702 S2's so I figured Id give them a try. I thought myself.. "how much better can they be than the 603's? " I mean after all B&W outdid themselves with the new 603's believe me.

    So I brought the 702's home.. and plugged them in and fired up the Rotel.

    Immediately noticed the mid tone was brighter.. and more detailed. I would assume its because of the different tweeter / housing design ...because after all it should be the same mid driver as the 603 right? Whatever is going on, its a lot brighter in the vocals mainly.. more accurate.. for a lack of a better description. The high frequencies are more robust and dynamic sounding. The bass is deeper. In other words, the whole sound spectrum is more robust than the 603. But you would never know it if I hadn't listed to the 702's because I was pretty happy with the 603's.

    The 603 sound stage is pretty darn good. The 702's is incredible. I can say without question that I'm hearing more detail in the music than I did with the 603's.

    When I brought the 702's home I had both sets in my listening room at the same time to do a comparison, and it was nice to be able to switch between the sets while in mid-song.

    All in all, B&W hit the mark with both the 603's and 702's and they will be hard to beat for sound quality in each of their perspective price ranges. Pair them up to a newer Rotel Amp/Pre / integrated amp and you will have the best audio system in your neighborhood.

    I found these songs bring out the full detail and performance credentials for both models..

    Happy customer

    Words cannot describe the experience. A word of advice, with great hardware, use great software. If you’re streaming music, Spotify is really good, but, try Tidal. The experience of hearing a great soprano (Diana Damrau) with these speakers, through Tidal, is quite something. Ed Sheeran (The Shape of You) is a completely different experience with these speakers and Tidal. Finally, feel the power of Gaga by listening to ‘Hollow’, ‘Bad Romance’ and ‘Poker Face’, power of voice through power of these speakers might give you goose bumps.

    P.S. I’m using a Marantz home theater amplifier.

    Superior Klipsch Sound

    The Kilpsch RP-8000 floor standing speakers is next entry in the highly praised reference premier line of audiophile home theater speakers, joining the current, and perhaps, replacing the RP-280 model. With an all new tweeter design, the RP-8000 is no doubt poised to target those who do not want to compromise sound quality and demand nothing but the best. I can safely say the RP-8000 exceeds expectations with flying colors. As such, because our perceptions of sound differ, as well as other variables such as equipment settings and room acoustics, I could not wait to test the RP-8000 thoroughly with different playback scenarios!

    Upon inspection of the RP-8000 speakers, I was pleased to note that they were packaged extremely well. The speaker was completely enclosed with a soft cloth cover, with a second set of plastic on top of that. Additionally, the RP-8000 is supported by three Styrofoam blocks. I would also strongly suggest you have another person help you remove the speaker from the box, as the large box was rather awkward for one person. I found it easiest to lay it down and have someone pull box away from you as you gently pull. Once opened, you are treated to one of the most beautiful piano black appearances you will ever see. To the touch, the speakers are extremely smooth and rounded perfectly on all sides. The gloss is just impeccable and is absolutely gorgeous. In addition, the piano black finish surprisingly did a fabulous job of concealing the fingerprints, though you will notice them up close. The included cloth easily wipes them away. Nonetheless, the speakers are absolutely stunning to see in person; no picture will be able capture the full elegance of the glossy finish. If you are on the fence on which variant to pick (Ebony, Walnut, Piano Black), I would strongly suggest the piano black variant, if of course your budget allows for the extra cost. Physically, the speakers are quite heavy, coming in at roughly 60 pounds, but were actually pretty easy to maneuver. Additionally, at 43 inches, depending the size of your TV and your entertainment furniture, they might come close to being flush with the top of the TV. On the back of the speakers, the RP-8000 are Bi-Amp ready with two pairs of speaker terminals (one set each for low and high frequency respectively). Lastly, the protective grill magnetically sticks to the front of the speaker. Overall, the RP-8000 are sure to impress and were fairly easy to setup!

    For testing purposes, I used a Pioneer Elite VSX-LX303 receiver to power the speakers, tied together using Audioquest 14 AWG X2 speaker wire that was manually cut from a 100ft spool. The VSX-LX303 receiver was also plugged up to the wall using an Audioquest NRG-Y3 AC cable. Additionally, I did not Bi-Amp the speakers and only used one set of terminals (bottom set). For playback of movies and music, I used my Sony Ultra Bluray UBP-X800 player. For my first test, I listened thoroughly to my collection of lossless music in a 2.0 channel configuration, as I wanted to specifically focus solely on the audio capabilities of the RP-8000. The LX303 receiver was set to Pure Direct mode, which disabled any additional processing so that the source passes unaltered to the speakers. Connectively, I next wanted to shift my attention to movie playback, with first testing the RP-8000 speakers by themselves (2.0) and then subsequently move to a standard home theater test using a standard 5.1 setup.

    During music playback, the first genre I ran through was some of my favorite classical pieces. I played through a high resolution copy Schumann's String Quartet (192 KHz/24 Bit/2 Channel PCM) that was encoded on a Bluray audio disc. The first thing I noticed was the instrument separation of the quartet was extremely prevalent, with high and middles frequencies extremely clear and pronounced. There was an intimate warmness to the sound that just grabs you! An almost surreal moment was that I could easily isolate each performer during the performance, yet still be able to experience the whole encompassing soundstage. It is definitely one of those moments where you just smile, especially when you have the lack of words to describe what you are hearing. In addition, you can sometimes hear other nuisances such as the inadvertent sound of the string when pressed against the wooden fingerboard or inhales of the performers. I was actually able to keep the receiver at roughly -50db in volume (LX-303 decreases and increases in -0.5 dB increments) and I did not feel the need to turn it up! For rock and metal genres, the RP-8000 actually did an amazing job! The sound quite vibrant. In addition, I did not notice any muddiness or hollowness that I sometimes hear when rock music is crushed during the mastering process. Symbols and drums were clear and punctual as well as the guitars. The middle and higher frequencies seemingly breathed as much as it could, despite the over use of compression that plagues modern rock music. It was refreshing, nonetheless, that the RP-8000 handled rock and metal as well as it did. For more bass orientated tracks, such as Rap and Trance music, the RP-8000 did an amazing job with the lower frequencies. It was punchy and clear, and yet it did not struggle to reproduce a low sound. In addition, where rumbling would occur had a subwoofer been present, the RP-8000 did an exceptional job of clear distinguishing the drops in low frequencies. With 32 Hz on the low end of its frequency response, this was pretty amazing and even more so given a two channel configuration! Granted, keep in mind the RP-8000 can only do so much until you add a subwoofer to handoff what it cannot reproduce. On more Hip-Hop instrumental tracks, and especially those with some Jazz influence, the lows, middles, and highs were all distinctly heard similar to my classical music. Switching to World genres and movie soundtracks, again the RP-8000 demonstrated extremely clear and punctual highs and middles. The lower frequencies were handled quite well once again. Over the course of several listening sessions that lasted several hours, spread out over multiple days, the RP-8000 continued to dazzle with amazing sound. The warmth and clarity was a real treat to hear!

    With exceptional music playback performance, I next want to focus my attention to movie playback. As with music, I set the receiver to Pure Direct mode. During my 2.0 channel test, the RP-8000 was able to maintain extremely clear dialogue, while simultaneously providing nice depth to action sequences. In the opening battle sequence of Gladiator (DTS-MA 48 KHz/24 Bit/5.1 source), I could easily hear battle dialogue as well as the background soundtrack. The soundstage was full and breathed new life into the movie; keeping the volume at a constant -40.0 dB, it was loud enough to completely fill downstairs. Furthermore, subtle sounds in the background, such as weapon clings and horse cries, were heard as well. In dialogue heavy scenes, the RP-8000 did an exceptional job with maintaining crystal clear dialogue, almost as if I had a center channel installed. Moving on, I switched to The Patriot to see how the RP-8000 would handle an uncompressed PCM track (48 KHz/16 Bit/5.1 source). It sure did not disappoint! I noted similar results as I had in Gladiator during battle sequences; drums of each army as they are lining in formation were crisp and sharp as well as the musket fire. The soundtrack, once again, was clear and vibrant. Switching to a full 5.1 setup, for both movies, the RP-8000 switched to more of an accompanying role with the dialog now pushed to the center speaker. The soundtracks of both movies still maintain excellent clarity. During the battle scenes, the center channel and the RP-8000 simultaneously worked back and forth off of each other fairly well. Once someone would finish talking, the RP-8000, while still playing the soundtrack in the background, would pick up the complimentary sound in the action scene. As soon as you heard musket fire on the RP-8000, it was followed immediately by rumbling of the handed off lows of the subwoofer. Additionally, debris and off side battles between movie extras were heard in the two surround speakers. The sound completely bewildered me, completely engulfing the room as well as downstairs. In Gladiator, the RP-8000 once again dazzled with sharp high frequencies of sword blows and ambient battle sounds. Suffice to say, with the RP-8000, all you can do is grin with excitement. Overall, I think most will be completely blown away by the sound.

    In conclusion, the RP-8000 is an exceptional piece for any audiophile's home theater system or as an upgrade to existing system. Physically, the built quality was top notch and the quality is just staggering. Furthermore, the reflective glossy black piano finish absolutely blew me away. Detail is exquisite with smooth rounded corners to provide a seamless and detailed transition on either side of the speaker. Performance wise, the RP-8000 handled my vast music collection with ease and I was able to enjoy a wide variety of genres. For me personally, the soundstage and overall clarity on the RP-8000 is best that I have personally heard from a speaker. Additionally, movies performed similarly, providing rich detail and an incredible soundstage that you have to hear to believe. In the end, for those who demand an exceptional audio experience, the RP-8000 might be the solution, provided of course that price is not of concern. With that said, the RP-8000 comes highly recommended.

    Add depth to your music and movie experience

    Pros

    Piano black gives elegant appearance

    Copper driver and ring create a sophisticated look

    Bi-Wire/Bi-Amp capable for improved sound

    Grill cover holds on with magnets instead of pegs

    Retaining magnets have felt to protect finish

    Wide range from 32Hz to 25kHz

    MDF enclosure snubs any hint of vibration or distortion

    High sensitivity doesn’t require much power

    Warm, slightly bright tone without harshness

    Integrated metal feet provide stable footing

    Integrated metal feet have rubber base to prevent vibrations

    Cleaning cloth included

    Cons

    Finish shows scratches, dust, and fingerprints easily

    Klipsch has long been known as a company that produces great sound for good price while keeping an emphasis on appearance, so you are proud to have these in your room. The Klipsch RP-8000F is the latest iteration of the Reference Series which has already proven in previous reviews to be a great line of speakers.

    Regardless of whether you want front stereo sound or need to complete a surround sound setup the RP-8000F can fit the bill. Previous generations included the copper driver which create a look of sophistication when the grill is removed but the latest generation includes an extra thin copper accent line. It might not sound like much, but it really improves the overall appearance. More notable is the change from the old black vinyl appearance to the new Piano Black finish. In pictures you might think it cheapens the appearance, but you really must see them in person to appreciate. The best way to think of the look is to imagine when you have seen a gloss black grand piano or any other musical instrument with that deep, dark, highly polished finish. In person you see a quality finish that adds a bit of elegance to your setup. Just keep in mind there is one downside to having that very glossy finish. Scratches, dust, or fingerprints show up easily but with proper care the look can make the difference between your room looking like it’s filled with plastic towers or high-quality enthusiast equipment. For enthusiasts they can become a piece of furniture you will love to look at. If for some reason you need to cover up the drivers, you can always opt to leave on the included grills which hold on with magnets. With magnets there is no need to worry about damaging fragile pegs and when removed it leaves a completely clean finish on the front of the speaker. With the integrated, sleek metal feet with rubberized base, the towers are isolated from the ground and prevent unwanted sounds and vibration.

    Most will be completely content with a single wire setup, but for those who must have the best you can opt to bi-wire or even bi-amp. By default, both pairs come connected by a heavy bus bar which is easily removed. The binding posts accept up to 12-gauge bare wire or banana plugs.

    Appearance means nothing if it isn’t backed up with great sound. Audiophiles might have their favorites but it’s hard to deny that Klipsch speakers create great sound. The tone is distinctly Klipsch being slightly bright without being unpleasant. With a good quality recording you can hear subtle sounds like the artist taking in a deep breath during a lull in the music or the subtle sounds of a pick running against a guitar string. You may find some of your favorite songs actually have more detail than you believed. You can appreciate a Soprano with perfect pitch without the pain and harshness produced by some speakers. Low notes of a Bass are faithfully produced with no hint of distortion. Combine them with a good quality recording and feel as if you are watching a live performance.

    When used as part of a home theater setup you can hear the deeper sounds from the action while allowing the subwoofer to handle the hard hitting bass. When used as the front left and right channels of a surround sound system, the full range allows better positional audio for a more immersive movie watching experience. Dialog is equally enhanced allowing to understand what is being said without the need to turn the volume up unnecessarily.

    If you are looking for an upgrade to your music and movie experience, the Klipsch RP-8000F warrants serious consideration.

    Premium speakers - worth every penny

    Speakers are a matter of personal preference I find - you either find speakers that you like and make the room fit them in , or you buy the speakers that fit your room.

    These Klipsch floor-standing front speakers, justify you building a new house if necessary.

    The bass is booming , the mids and the highs pull out every nuance of the audio - whether its one of my go-to movies (Star Trek Beyond) and wide range of audio (from electronic, though Jazz and classical) the speakers makes them all sounds like they've been upscaled to a new resolution. (I even considered whether I need a sub in a small setup - the bass is really that good).

    Make no mistake these speakers look pricey - but you get every penny's worth out of them. You can hear phrases and music that you didnt know where there - the audio experience is second to none.

    I ran these using a single pair of quality audio cables, but they include dual-posts for bi-amping the speaker if you need that extra refinement (yes, these go to '11'!!)

    My only criticism of these 800F speakers, is nothing to do with the audio quality. The piano black is as shiny as it sounds (check the photos).

    I was initially concerned that they might reflect the image from the screen but if you're head on its not an issue (so think about the placement relative to where your crew sits). The biggest issue I think is you're going to be constantly dusting and wiping the glossy surface. Let alone panicing that they will pick up any microscratches (because they WILL show up!)

    Dont look any further for the best all-round , floor standing front speakers you can find. These are precision engineered audio machines, and will surpass all expectations (and I have high expectations). Just do your stress-levels a favour and buy the regular , non-piano black or walnut finish version.

    I received these speakers at no charge for evaluation, but all opinions expressed on here are my own, based on real use in my personal environment and setup.

    These speakers are massive and amazing. I was not disappointed with these. They pack a punch. I have the Klipsch 12in woofer (R-112SW) and these things hit the low frequency so well that it almost drowns that woofer out. I would highly recommend this speaker to anyone looking for a serious home theater experience.

    Bowers & Wilkins - 700 Series 3-way Floorstanding Speaker w/ Tweeter on top, w/6" midrange, three 6.5" bass drivers (each) - Gloss black
    Description

    Bring studio-quality sound to your living room with this black Bowers & Wilkins floor speaker. Its solid housing minimizes mechanical vibrations, and the top-mounted tweeter offers stunningly accurate high-frequency sound. This Bowers & Wilkins floor speaker has three bass drivers and a vented box system for producing dynamic low-frequency audio.

    8 Features
  • Carbon Dome Tweeter: Pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail resulting from a Carbon Coating on our aluminum Double Dome Tweeter. The closest performance to our Diamond Dome Tweeters.
  • Solid Body Tweeter: Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances. You'll enjoy smooth and clear highs.
  • 6" Continuum Midrange: Continnum is a woven material that blends control with flexibility. The result is breathtaking clarity right where you need it most- the midrange. Hear voices, guitars and other instruments in a whole new way.
  • Aerofoil Bass Drivers: Bass drivers need to be light, stiff and not ring like a bell. Aerofoil features incredibly light materials molded into a shape resembling an airplane wing for optimal rigidity and damping. Instead of hearing one-note bass, you'll hear colors and textures with power and control
  • Driver Decoupling: Decoupling places a shock-absorber between the cabinet and drivers to short circuit detail smearing distortion. The result is greater clarity and pinpoint imaging by reducing distortions that soften and blur what you hear.
  • 3- Way Design: Drivers are optimized for their specialized roles in reproducing high frequencies, mid frequencies and low frequencies. This results in better performance for all sounds.
  • Flowport: Reduces air turbulence for clearer bass by dimpling the flared port.
  • Magnetic grille: Remains acoustically transparent while protecting the speaker's components.

    Best I’ve ever owned

    These are the best speakers I’ve ever owned. I purchased these as an upgrade from the Bowers and Wilkins 603’s ( best decision ever ) . I was blown away by the deep base and clear highs associated with 702’s . It’s like I’m in the room with the band . If I close my eyes I can actually see where every band member is standing while playing their instruments. With my older albums I hear things I’ve never heard before on albums I grew up listening to in the 70’s and 80’s .

    What can I say.. lets see

    Full disclosure, I power my setup with a Rotel RA-1572

    First and foremost.. I upgraded from the B&W 600 series.. the new 600 series.. the ones currently available from B&W.. and those sounded great to begin with.. so I happen to stumble upon a screaming deal on a pair of 702 S2's so I figured Id give them a try. I thought myself.. "how much better can they be than the 603's? " I mean after all B&W outdid themselves with the new 603's believe me.

    So I brought the 702's home.. and plugged them in and fired up the Rotel.

    Immediately noticed the mid tone was brighter.. and more detailed. I would assume its because of the different tweeter / housing design ...because after all it should be the same mid driver as the 603 right? Whatever is going on, its a lot brighter in the vocals mainly.. more accurate.. for a lack of a better description. The high frequencies are more robust and dynamic sounding. The bass is deeper. In other words, the whole sound spectrum is more robust than the 603. But you would never know it if I hadn't listed to the 702's because I was pretty happy with the 603's.

    The 603 sound stage is pretty darn good. The 702's is incredible. I can say without question that I'm hearing more detail in the music than I did with the 603's.

    When I brought the 702's home I had both sets in my listening room at the same time to do a comparison, and it was nice to be able to switch between the sets while in mid-song.

    All in all, B&W hit the mark with both the 603's and 702's and they will be hard to beat for sound quality in each of their perspective price ranges. Pair them up to a newer Rotel Amp/Pre / integrated amp and you will have the best audio system in your neighborhood.

    I found these songs bring out the full detail and performance credentials for both models..

    Happy customer

    Words cannot describe the experience. A word of advice, with great hardware, use great software. If you’re streaming music, Spotify is really good, but, try Tidal. The experience of hearing a great soprano (Diana Damrau) with these speakers, through Tidal, is quite something. Ed Sheeran (The Shape of You) is a completely different experience with these speakers and Tidal. Finally, feel the power of Gaga by listening to ‘Hollow’, ‘Bad Romance’ and ‘Poker Face’, power of voice through power of these speakers might give you goose bumps.

    P.S. I’m using a Marantz home theater amplifier.

    Bowers & Wilkins - 700 Series 3-way Floorstanding Speaker w/5" midrange, dual 5" bass (each) - Gloss Black
    Description

    Enjoy accurate, realistic sound with this black Bowers & Wilkins floor speaker. Its two bass drivers deliver thumping low frequencies, and the Carbon Dome tweeter and midrange driver offer commanding, studio-quality audio. This Bowers & Wilkins floor speaker integrates into your living space and entertainment system for seamless sound production with a frequency range of 48Hz - 28kHz.

    8 Features
  • 1" Carbon Dome Tweeter: Pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail resulting from a Carbon Coating on our aluminum Double Dome Tweeter. The closest performance to our Diamond Dome Tweeters.
  • Solid Body Tweeter: Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances. You'll enjoy smooth and clear highs.
  • 5" Continuum Midrange: Continnum is a woven material that blends control with flexibility. The result is breathtaking clarity right where you need it most- the midrange. Hear voices, guitars and other instruments in a whole new way.
  • Aerofoil Bass Drivers: Bass drivers need to be light, stiff and not ring like a bell. Aerofoil features incredibly light materials molded into a shape resembling an airplane wing for optimal rigidity and damping. Instead of hearing one-note bass, you'll hear colors and textures with power and control
  • Driver Decoupling: Decoupling places a shock-absorber between the cabinet and drivers to short circuit detail smearing distortion. The result is greater clarity and pinpoint imaging by reducing distortions that soften and blur what you hear.
  • 3- Way Design: Drivers are optimized for their specialized roles in reproducing high frequencies, mid frequencies and low frequencies. This results in better performance for all sounds.
  • Flowport: Reduces air turbulence for clearer bass by dimpling the flared port.
  • Magnetic grille: Remains acoustically transparent while protecting the speaker's components.

    Absolutely Fantastic Speakers

    Fantastic speakers. Definitely not as clear as the 702s with their separate driver but still really good. I’d say don’t skimp on the amp. I have a Yamaha 780 and it does well but it definitely doesn’t have enough power to fully drive them. I’d say pair no less than a 1 grand receiver with these to get the most out of them. Definitely need a subwoofer with these if anyone is wondering. They are a little over top with bass sometimes but I like it as it’s tight.

    Magnificent!

    We got a set of these for our front speakers in our home theater set up. Truly wonderful sound. They were an easy choice when we compared speakers. Better sound than most, but not a break the bank price. Buy quality and you only have to do it once.

    Movie Theater Experience

    Great speakers! The sound and bass during a movie or listening to music is incredible. I have a LG Oled and wanted speakers that matches the quality of the tv and these did the trick.

    We had family over a couple weeks ago and we got a lot of compliments on them.

    Fantastic speakers!

    This is tough to say, as I love my CM's, but the 700 series do sound better than the CM line. Anyone with the CM S2's will appreciate the the 700's once you hear them. Bowers and Wilkins have outdone themselves again.

    Be warned, once you hear them, it'll be hard to resist upgradeitus. You will not be disappointed with the new 700 series.

    Superior Service from Jay and Dave

    I received superior service and knowledge from the general manager of the store, Jay, and the magnolia supervisor, Dave, at the Citrus park location in Florida. The personalized attention of what I was trying to achieve, descriptions of the product compared to another product of same brand, and the experience from both helped me make my purchase. I havent received or wanted to write a review but decided to for these two gentlemen.

    The product is amazing. How much clarity that comes from these speakers, paired sonicaly with my in ceiling Bowers & Wilkins - 6" 2-Way In-Ceiling Speaker Model:CCM663. placement in my room according how Jay suggested is an absolute must as well.

    You can't go wrong with these speakers I highly recommend these and the citrus park best buy

    Great all-purpose speaker for a large room

    These speakers are easy to drive, have a fantastic sound and great imaging. They are easy to drive and once positioned correctly, are easy to listen to. One thing to watch out for in placement is that they produce sound from both the front and the rear of the film, so ideally you would want similar surfaces behind both of them. I didn't so getting them placed properly took a bit more time due to time effects from one speaker getting the reflection from the wall behind it while the other speaker had no wall behind it. It took some toe-in and some experimentation with distance to the wall to get around this. Once they are set up though, they sound fantastic.

    They sound especially great with well-recorded orchestral music - especially brass. They also sound fantastic with vocals and piano. And then they sound great with contemporary as well. There's really no music I've found that these don't reproduce well.

    Some reviewers have stated these to be a bit bright -- I would say it depends a lot on your amplifier. For example, at first I had them powered by a Bryston B60 (60WPC). This amplifier had plenty of power to drive them, but I found output in the mid to high range was a bit harsh, but the lower end was extremely tight and present. The harshness at the high end went away to some extent with time, but never fully relaxed. I then tried them with my Classe CAP-150 (150WPC). The result was a much smoother sound through the mids and high, but the lows were a bit too relaxed. Finally, I hooked them up to my Classe CAP-2100 and that's how it's remained. The highs are smooth, clear, and crisp -- without being fatiguing on the ears -- and the lows are punchy, precise, and accurate. Most people probably don't have those amps sitting in their closets (luckily my wife hasn't sold them on me yet), so I would suggest auditioning in person and making a decision on an amp and speaker combination together.

    I would definitely recommend a sizeable subwoofer for this in a large room. Since these speakers are very efficient, they put out a lot of sound with even modest amplification (even at 60W). The lows drop off at around 50Hz in my room, so the sub really helps take the sound to full range.

    The only real downside I see with these speakers -- and it's minor -- is that the terminals don't allow for tight attachment of spade connectors. I plan to contact the manufacturer to see if they offer a binding post upgrade.

    A Natural and Spacious Experience!

    I came from a pair of Polk Towers and I am blown away. The amount of detail is unbelievable. In the store I was leaning towards a pair of B&W's and a Marantz PM8005 amp in another room. The associate was kind enough to hook up the ML's next to the Bowers I was surprised how clear and natural the ML's were not to mention the imaging was amazing! The Bass is something lots of people are unsure about but when you put a little power into these guys they really come alive. I know its possible to power the stats off of anything but they really shine with some clean power. Another area of concern is placement. I sit 12 feet away and have these guys 7 feet apart. They are pulled out about 2 feet from the wall and have at least 1.5- 2 feet to each wall. They did take some time to set up and dial in but even right up against the wall they were great, I found they just kept improving the more I played with them. These fore sure have to be on everyones list to listen to!

    Excellent!

    I've had many speakers through the years. Anywhere from the college dorm Cerwin Vega w/ 15" woofers to M&K S150s that were used to mix the Star Wars movies. I purchased the ESLs after moving to NYC. I have a small apartment in a huge complex, so knew I wanted speakers that were crystal clear even at low volumes. I must say, I am impressed! The ESLs brought out details I've never heard before in music, and they're excellent for movies as well. Excellent purchase all the way around!

    Better than I imagined!

    The first high end audio system I listened to was McIntosh tube amplifiers with AR speakers about 1970. I soon had my own McIntosh solid state amplifiers with KLH 9 full range electrostatic speakers. If you read the history of Martin Logan the KLH 9 is mentioned. Electrostatic speakers once enjoyed, set a standard that must be met. As my space is shrinking these new Martin Logan’s are replacing an older and larger pair of SL-3’s. After carefully listening to these new ones, I am well satisfied. Bravo!

    Very, but HUGE!

    I bought these to complete me Def Tech surround system for my home theater. I was going to use these for the rear surrounds, but upon receipt and taking out of the box, these things are HUGE!

    I know others have mentioned it, but they really are huge speakers for using as rear surrounds. They'd be better used in a 5.1 system rather than a 7.1 system, as they visually and physically took up too much space in the room to justify keeping. I had to return due to my room not being able to support rear speakers so large.

    Great build quality, great looking, just too big for my setup.

    Upgraded from my Klipsch bi-polars.. Wonderful sound.

    Couldn't use the banana plugs to connect the cables to the speakers 'cos they were making the speakers pop out of the wall. These are pretty big & heavy for a surround, make sure you fasten the wall screws so hold them when you hang.

    These bad boys deliver!

    I had question should I get these with 6.5” or 8 inch driver and I can say 6.5 inch is more than sufficient to rock the house. I thought if I buy these and they were not a good fit then I can exchange for 8 inch if needed. I am very happy with my purchase. Purchase price I paid 400.00 a piece. Klipsch had 20 percent off sale from $msrp of 500.00. I highly recommend Reference Premier line. Skip the reference line because it doesn’t have same built quality or superior sound and tones. I have these paired to center rp404c and I’m extremely pleased.

These speakers have more life. Probably most over looked in RP klipsche line. Barely need the SPL100 these create massive amounts of bass for music from 6" driver. Having owned Frazier before and learning Klipsch and Frazier had same philosophy of recreating sound is what convinced me try Klipsch I am not disappointed. For price and performance in a 15x13 room these RP6000 are perfect fit.

    Stellar Performance!

    Installed pair of RP-6000F towers and RP-504C center channel in my dedicated media room one week ago. Have spent several hours adjusting, listening, and comparing my previous in-wall speaker experience with the my new Klipsch speakers. The most simple way to describe the sound performance is the content in music and movies is "Alive and exciting!". I have been in the custom AV installation business for over 2 decades and fell like these are the best value out there. You don't have to have a lot of power to create a large amount of sound. My wife and I have been using the sound-space for over 9 years with another brand of speaker. (F.Y.I.- My wife does NOT enjoy my technology obsession.) She stated that she liked the aesthetic of them and loved the clarity of dialog.

    Good for smaller rooms, struggles in a big room

    These speakers have a great look to them, and are very easy to set up without banana plugs. The sound is very filling in a small room, but they may struggle in a larger open-concept living room. I pair them with a Denon receiver and have to go between 45-50 volume to get them loud enough. I paired this with an RP-404C and the combination is pretty great for a casual movie watcher.

    Freat speakers

    I’ve had these for 6 months now in a small room so I don’t know how they’ll sound in a larger space . To date they are the most expensive speakers I’ve owned but in this case i think you get what you pay for. I noticed while listening to music i hear subtle nuisances I’ve never heard before as well as a much larger sound field . I bought these to bi wire them it was kind of hard to tell if they sound that much better in that configuration. I’ve added the b&w 606 book shelf pair and the small center for home theater Listening .

    Bowers and Wilkins Sound! Nuff Said!

    These towers are the best bang for the buck and to be honest, I loved them every second that I owned them but then I got the upgrade bug! I thought if these speakers were that good then, how amazing could the 703 S2 series be? Well, it turned out they are amazing but if you can’t spend the extra dough for the 703 S2 series, then the 603’s would give you the listening experience you want!

    These Speakers are Awesome and they’re Hi-Res Audio I got them when they were on Sale on November for 50% Off so I got them for $100 Each instead of $200 Each.

    Great with Atmos Speakers

    Originally planned on purchasing the SSCS5 bookshelf speakers, after hearing the SSCS3’s I decided to just pay the additional cost, I purchased the Dolby Atmos speakers from Sony and the mounts work well for top placement on the SSCS3.

    Small but big sound

    Theses towers are a great addition to my 7.2 home theater. They may not produce thunderous bass but they can pack a decent punch at higher volumes.

    Good speakers at a great price

    I recently upgraded my home entertainment system from a 5.1 to a 7.1. I had 6 Paradigms (4 wall mounted, a center and a sub). I did a lot of research, I mean a LOT in order to get the best value for the money. I checked all the big names (Bose, Klipsch, Paradigm, JBL, you name it). Although there are vast differences in prices, excluding unconventional systems) a speaker is a speaker. I've bought many, re.coned, repaired/replaced drivers, replaced surrounds, upgraded crossover networks, horns, subs, everything, The specification sheet will tell you everything about a speaker except how it sounds in a given cabinet. Different speaker configurations require different cabinet configurations. I wanted a tower that was relatively small but had a big sound with rich low end. These filled the bill and then some. At the time I was looking, Best Buy had just put these on sale for $199 apiece. Suffice to say, they sound as good if not better than speakers at 3 times that price. No disappointments here. They sound as good at low volume as they do at higher gain. These cabinets and speakers are very well matched and sound great in the entertainment room. If you can get them at a good price...DO IT! Added bonus...the plants seem to really like the music and are growing nicely!

    Tower speakers

    Speakers look awesome. They low end is disappointing. Luckily I purchased a sub.

    Also didn’t pay attention to the fact they are 145 watts. I have it paired to a Yamaha 485. So it can’t be turned up past -15 db.

    Excellent price quality ratio. impressive sound on a budget speaker. You can’t believe 5 inch woofer deliver this amount of bass. Highs are very detailed and vivid. Enough power handling for small to medium rooms.

    Home Theater Experience for an Achievable Price

    I’d consider myself an average movie watching person that appreciates good sound but I’m not fancy enough to care or understand the details that advanced audiophiles rant and/or rave about. I think most people are like that. I imagine if you’re shopping for Sony Core Series speakers, you’re probably like that too. I’m here to tell you that buying these is a great idea.

    I purchased these floorstanding speakers alongside all the other Sony Core Series speakers when they were on sale on Memorial Day to quickly create a budget 5.1.2 Atmos setup for my movie nights. Some speakers were purchased open box, which were cheaper, and put the total 5.1.2 speaker setup cost at $497. I figured at that price point I can’t complain if it sounds subpar, and it wouldn’t financially hurt much to fully replace them down the road with something fancier if I so desired.

    However, after having used the setup for around 2 months through countless movies and video games, I am absolutely in love. These are the definition of punching above their weight. Now, again, I’m not fancy enough to tell you the details of how and why these are so great; I could throw around audio terminology all day but you and I both know I would be talking out of my butt. It’s simple: these provide an auditory experience beyond my normal-person needs. My home has become an exciting and engaging movie-viewing hotspot for all friends and family, and that’s what it’s all about.

    Amazing Sound - Questionable Longevity

    First off - these speakers sound amazing. I am not an audiophile, but I was going between purchasing some floor standing speakers and then adding (2) subwoofers, or just purchasing these towers with the integrated subs.

    I went to BBY and listened to all the different independent subwoofers in the store, and while they were "okay", none of the options blew me away. Then I went into the room with the Def Tech speakers, and we watched the same movie clip with the BP9080x tower speakers, and the decision was made instantly. The subs sounded signifcantly deeper, as well as more balanced than any of the individual subwoofers, and the comparison was not even close. The Def Techs sound 2X better, easy.

    I pulled the trigger, and took them home. Set them up into my home theater, and they sound amazing. The bass is off the charts, to the point that I get in trouble each time I from the neighbor when I watch an action movie, as it shakes their entire wall of their house! I have the subs at 20%, but if you crank them to 40% (or 50% if you're crazy), they will seriously shake your entire house! I cannot believe the amount of bass these things kick out.

    Now the bad...

    The automatic turn on of the subwoofer amplifiers are a horrible idea. When i turn on a movie, the subs won't turn on unless there is a powerful enough signal, I have to turn the volume up to a level where it recognizes the bass, then sometimes 1, sometimes both of the subs will come on. Then about 2 seconds after the subs turn on, a big "THUMP" happens EVERY TIME! The only way to avoid this that I've found is to have a separate surge protector with only the towers hooked up to it, and then power the surge protector on before every movie. This turns the subs on with no signal, prevent the big "thump" noise.

    Then, after watching a movie, the subs remain on for about 10-15 minutes, but when the amps turn off, the big "Thump" occurs again. It is so distasteful that I stopped using the speakers for half a year because it sounds so bad. I called Def Tech and told them the issue, but they wouldn't even hear me out - they simply sent me a new amplifier in the mail and said that will fix the issue. NOTE - both towers do this, so I will have to write Def Tech back and request another amp, one for each tower to fix this issue (if this truly is the problem). If it is the problem, what are the chances both towers would be defective?

    I purchased the center speaker as well, the CS9080, and that speaker has some issues occurring as well, so I'm losing faith in Def Tech's quality. The sound is amazing, but not sure they are using quality parts, or the sourcing partners have some serious quality control issues.

    If I were to go back in time, despite the Def Techs sounding incredible (from a bass perspective), I think I'd avoid getting integrated subwoofers, and just get a pair of quality KEF Q-series, or some nice B&W's, and then pair with a couple SVS subwoofers and call it a day. Non-powered speakers should last FOREVER, so by removing the weak link (amplifier in integrated sub), you remove the one potential issue you could have.

    I have a full Def Tech setup, BP9080x towers, CS9080 center, and the 9080 surrounds, and they sound great, but for all the stress they've caused me with quality issues, I'd avoid.

    Tremendous Engineering

    Alright, being a proud owner of a pair of high end bookshelf speakers,( AR-11), which boast the best quality bass reproduction for it's time, (mid- 70's) I was sceptical about a set of towers replacing and out performing them. I got the usual demonstration in the listening room at the Magnolia section of the store and was impressed enough to purchase a pair. Originally planned to have these in my bedroom but on a whim I moved them to my living room while moving my AR's into the bedroom. The 9020's have soared in the living room, you can see how far apart they are in the photo, but clarity, separation, and excellent bass response are mine. So much so when playing CD's, Streamer, analog phono, or xbox I have to limit their use to when my neighbor isn't home or is at work. These are more than capable of absorbing power from that Carver 2000 reciever with the 200 watt per channel amplifier. I just finished listening to Genesis and Tears For Fears and have marveled at how a self powered sub-woofer with an 8-inch driver can outperform the 12 inch drivers in the AR's but it does. Wether listening to music or soundtracks in Blu Ray or HD Tv, sound reproduction is outstanding. And I bought the smaller towers not the larger ones.

    Great speakers

    Bought these to replace a sound bar and it’s definitely night and day difference. The intergrated subwoofer definitely adds substantial bass to home theater and making these more portable and flexible for systems that doesn’t require any separate subwoofer. Movies have an immersive sound stage and music plays clear. I have these setup with the CS 9060 and A90 atmos topper and it’s works perfect with my setup. I have these running in a 3.1.2 configuration and I am happily satisfied with the sound stage. These are bi pole speakers and will create a larger image to any room. I would recommend buying these if it’s on sale that way you can buy the atmos speaker to complete the setup. Great performance for the price.

    Great lows and highs. Hooked up to a Sony STH DH790 . It get the job done. But I think I need a more powerful receiver for these speakers. So don't get these unless you spend the money on a better receiver. These also make you think you have subs in the room.

    Excellent

    I chose these over the 8” model because spec-wise the only difference was 3 less Hz on the frequency response, a little less power handling, and 1 dB less sensitive. I have a sub, so I didn’t care about a few Hz lacking, and these things get so loud with zero distortion, I’m not sure what you would do with the extra power handling. It was worth the savings to me.

    These are crisp, clear and powerful. I love hearing the mid-bass I was missing from the wimpy speakers I had before. These also blend nicely with a subwoofer. As I said, I’m not sure how loud you would have to crank these to make them distort. Highs are crystal clear, but not harsh to me, and plenty of midrange as well.

    I prefer a more wood grain look over the finish on these, but the copper drivers and screws are eye catching. Just like any Klipsch speaker, they are a good vale at regular price, but at 1/2 off, they are a great deal, and nothing comes close in that price range!

    Great rear floor standing speakers

    WAF will not allow wall mounted speakers (until I finally got my front heights, but that's another story). So to complete out a 9.2 set-up, I purchased these to bring up the rear speaker duty. They also now hold my Klipsch Atomos upward firing speakers perfectly while serving as the surround rears. They do a great job at both tasks.

    Lots of low-end, Brittle & piercing highs, No body

    I wonder if I'm listening to the same speaker as so many here. I'm giving them another week or more to break-in but in the first 2 days I really can't stand them, at least for music. For home-theater, movie-watching etc. I think they're really quite good for the price. Music though, absolutely not unless you *only* listen to EDM and other electronica, some hip-hop and pop and that's about it. They have a weirdly inflated low-end with a ton of mid-bass but the upper bass and *all* lower mids aren't just hollow, they're just not there. The highs are splashy and brittle and tinny. A cymbal strike only has the "tick" of the attack and no body to it, e.g. you can hear the cymbal, just the idea of a cymbal. But it's very loud, that's certain. Acoustic, classical, jazz and even most rock don't sound right because the mids are so anemic. But they thump and slam and they do go very loud, very easily with a modest amplifier.

    I was able to dial in an EQ that made them listenable to me for longer than 10 minutes but it's the first time I have EVER turned on the high fitler on my Marantz and just left it on for everything. From there I could dial the EQ normally, but it's telling and I doubt I can live with these.... But I'll give it another week or two.

    Again, for movie-watching these work well. The sound is very dynamic and forward (as Klipsch are) sounding and with plenty of mid-bass a sub isn't really necessary unless you want total house rumble.

    I should also mention the build-quality is cheap. The feet for these are plastic that feel like they'll maybe last 5 years at the absolute most before breaking. Also one of the screw for attaching those feet broke at the head, just sheared right off, when I was putting the very first foot on - just from hand-tightening - e.g. even the screws are cheap garbage metal.

    Sorry, but with all the clamoring about the new Klipsch speaker lines I thought I'd give them a try since I'd not lived with a Klipsch set of loudspeakers since around 2001 (a roommate's) and figured they sound like some changes had been made. They haven't. They're still Klipsch.

    I entirely understand why this sound may absolutely rock the world for many people, but for any nuance or control in music listening for me they just don't work. Overall, they get a solid pass for home-theater and thus far a total fail for music. I'd give them 3-stars if the 100-dollar-off-each sale price I got was their regular price. But at full normal pricing, 2-star. Just my opinion. You have to listen for yourself.

    Lifetime speakers

    I sold electronics many years ago. I had a nice 5.1 surround sound system that I didn't think I would part from. I went into BB looking for appliances, and strolled over to the audio section. Always respected Klipsch, never thinking I would own them. At first I considered just replacing the Sub. After doing that I realized I needed to replace my speakers on stands with towers. I was astounded by the difference! This speaker system is absolutely amazing! Bright Crystal clear highs, strong mids, and bass you can feel in your chest. Coming from someone who made a living from selling audio for a decade, this is a phenomenal experience I enjoy coming home to every day!

    Got these for an upgrade from the 12 year old RM series surround sound speakers I had. Sound so good and very crisp sound. Highs are not muffled and bass is booming coming out of the ports. Would recommend to anyone that watches movies or likes to immerse into listening the music.

    Nice for music listening

    Only had 'em for a day, but it is obvious that they are keepers....unless something goes wrong.

    Using in living room for listening to music only via CD or Streaming Device. Nice full sound and adequate bass for music only.

    Usually I let a speaker loosen up awhile before commenting, but these are just fine out of the box.

    My listening preferences range from Classical to Pop Vocal and even some Bluegrass or Jazz. The Polk's have done just fine so far.

    They replace KEF bookshelf (early Q series) and a powered sub. Tower speakers just sound fuller and I don't have to mess with the sub-woofer settings. Not as many cables either.

    As a con, they are Big so be ready for that. Also, the feet while feeling quite stable are "plastic" Metal would be nicer, but these are not expensive speakers....soooo!

    Enjoy them yourself and see.

I am still using my Polk subwoofer PSW400 which still cranks and sounds good. I went with Polk because of their quality and sound. Great sound and aesthetic.

    Amazing Sound - Questionable Longevity

    First off - these speakers sound amazing. I am not an audiophile, but I was going between purchasing some floor standing speakers and then adding (2) subwoofers, or just purchasing these towers with the integrated subs.

    I went to BBY and listened to all the different independent subwoofers in the store, and while they were "okay", none of the options blew me away. Then I went into the room with the Def Tech speakers, and we watched the same movie clip with the BP9080x tower speakers, and the decision was made instantly. The subs sounded signifcantly deeper, as well as more balanced than any of the individual subwoofers, and the comparison was not even close. The Def Techs sound 2X better, easy.

    I pulled the trigger, and took them home. Set them up into my home theater, and they sound amazing. The bass is off the charts, to the point that I get in trouble each time I from the neighbor when I watch an action movie, as it shakes their entire wall of their house! I have the subs at 20%, but if you crank them to 40% (or 50% if you're crazy), they will seriously shake your entire house! I cannot believe the amount of bass these things kick out.

    Now the bad...

    The automatic turn on of the subwoofer amplifiers are a horrible idea. When i turn on a movie, the subs won't turn on unless there is a powerful enough signal, I have to turn the volume up to a level where it recognizes the bass, then sometimes 1, sometimes both of the subs will come on. Then about 2 seconds after the subs turn on, a big "THUMP" happens EVERY TIME! The only way to avoid this that I've found is to have a separate surge protector with only the towers hooked up to it, and then power the surge protector on before every movie. This turns the subs on with no signal, prevent the big "thump" noise.

    Then, after watching a movie, the subs remain on for about 10-15 minutes, but when the amps turn off, the big "Thump" occurs again. It is so distasteful that I stopped using the speakers for half a year because it sounds so bad. I called Def Tech and told them the issue, but they wouldn't even hear me out - they simply sent me a new amplifier in the mail and said that will fix the issue. NOTE - both towers do this, so I will have to write Def Tech back and request another amp, one for each tower to fix this issue (if this truly is the problem). If it is the problem, what are the chances both towers would be defective?

    I purchased the center speaker as well, the CS9080, and that speaker has some issues occurring as well, so I'm losing faith in Def Tech's quality. The sound is amazing, but not sure they are using quality parts, or the sourcing partners have some serious quality control issues.

    If I were to go back in time, despite the Def Techs sounding incredible (from a bass perspective), I think I'd avoid getting integrated subwoofers, and just get a pair of quality KEF Q-series, or some nice B&W's, and then pair with a couple SVS subwoofers and call it a day. Non-powered speakers should last FOREVER, so by removing the weak link (amplifier in integrated sub), you remove the one potential issue you could have.

    I have a full Def Tech setup, BP9080x towers, CS9080 center, and the 9080 surrounds, and they sound great, but for all the stress they've caused me with quality issues, I'd avoid.

    Tremendous Engineering

    Alright, being a proud owner of a pair of high end bookshelf speakers,( AR-11), which boast the best quality bass reproduction for it's time, (mid- 70's) I was sceptical about a set of towers replacing and out performing them. I got the usual demonstration in the listening room at the Magnolia section of the store and was impressed enough to purchase a pair. Originally planned to have these in my bedroom but on a whim I moved them to my living room while moving my AR's into the bedroom. The 9020's have soared in the living room, you can see how far apart they are in the photo, but clarity, separation, and excellent bass response are mine. So much so when playing CD's, Streamer, analog phono, or xbox I have to limit their use to when my neighbor isn't home or is at work. These are more than capable of absorbing power from that Carver 2000 reciever with the 200 watt per channel amplifier. I just finished listening to Genesis and Tears For Fears and have marveled at how a self powered sub-woofer with an 8-inch driver can outperform the 12 inch drivers in the AR's but it does. Wether listening to music or soundtracks in Blu Ray or HD Tv, sound reproduction is outstanding. And I bought the smaller towers not the larger ones.

    Great speakers

    Bought these to replace a sound bar and it’s definitely night and day difference. The intergrated subwoofer definitely adds substantial bass to home theater and making these more portable and flexible for systems that doesn’t require any separate subwoofer. Movies have an immersive sound stage and music plays clear. I have these setup with the CS 9060 and A90 atmos topper and it’s works perfect with my setup. I have these running in a 3.1.2 configuration and I am happily satisfied with the sound stage. These are bi pole speakers and will create a larger image to any room. I would recommend buying these if it’s on sale that way you can buy the atmos speaker to complete the setup. Great performance for the price.

    These are fine speakers at full price. But value wise on sale is the way to go. Can't imagine better sub 1k sound in a tower. Using the lfe connection though not the "recommended" option absolutely gives more than enough space to fill a good sized room.

    Def Tech FTW

    Absolutely outstanding sound. Great mids and lows, will always sound better with an amplifier instead of a straight AVR. The Bipolar aspect definitely fills the void in which you'd think is a small tower. Do not let rhe size fool you. Will only sound better once my house is finally built and i can move into the loving room.

    I was shopping for new subwoofer and came across these BP9040 speakers. Built in 8" subwoofers. You are able to adjust the amount of bass you like. Movies and music sound awesome. Still surprised how great they sound, paired with CS9040. The mids are incredibly clear, with the right amount of bass. Solving my subwoofer problem. Ended up being a great time to upgrade my L/C/R speakers.Thunderous and clear sounding. You can feel the bass through your chest.. 7.2 setup with Denon X2200 pushing them. I can always later add A90 atmos speakers later as well.- Mensrea69

    From mild to WILD theater quality sound! Amazing

    In 2015 I wanted an affordable great sounding Home Theater system, did lots of research and chose a Def Tech Pro Cinema 600 speaker system and a Yamaha RXA 1050 Receiver. I thought I was in heaven and my family and friends were very impressed at how large and clean everything sounded for nearly being invisible in the modest 14'x18' Living room. I thought I was set and done! I'm also a sucker for stopping in the Best Buy "sound room" to listen to all the cool expensive speakers... last year thats when it really started! I walked out of the store with a new set of Def Tech BP 9040 Towers, then a month later, I got a CS 9040 Center speaker, then a month later, a pair of SR 9040 Surrounds. I thought I was complete and done... NOT! A couple months later I ordered the A 90 Atmos tower topper speakers. (Don't get me wrong, the Pro Cinema 600 system is a fine sounding set of speakers for their size, they easily shook the room and I loved them.) After about a total tweaking time of 2 hours cumulative with the receiver, this new 9040 speaker system is phenomenal as far as I'm concerned. I've been to many AMC, Harkins and other theaters.... My living room sounds just as good... anyone that has heard my little theater will agree... they are always wanting to know when they can come back and watch another movie. If you are looking for an awesome moderately priced home theater speaker system, Give these Def Techs a listen... You'll probably do what I did, I love mine!

The AV receiver driving this setup is a Denon AVRx4500. Another plus: I retirer two external subwoofers, since the built-in 8" units add high impact for music and movies. If you're looking for an attractive and great sounding speaker, give the Def Tech BP9040 a try!

    Best center speaker I’ve had

    Currently using the speaker as a center channel. Installation was fairly simple and it looks great on my wall. A sub is necessary as these have terrible bass, however it makes it up with terrific mids and highs. These speakers can be used as either l/r channels or as a center.

    This was an open box purchase. Not inexpensive, for a center tv channel. But the Hi notes on voice were just too hi for my ear---almost cracking. So I returned. Best Buy no hassle returns is a very nice feature.

    I purchased this speaker to replace a perfectly great but too bulky center channel. my former center channel speaker was working perfectly fine but it is just big to mount below my 75" TV with a pull down mantle mount. This Martin Logan speaker perfectly fit my size requirements perfectly and functions exceptionally well as a center channel in concert with large tower speakers, bookshelf rear speakers and an 800 watt dual 12' subwoofer. All speakers are driven by a Marantz AV receiver with high quality speaker cables and connects. Playing Music is awesome with exceptional clarity of both voice and instruments with no overcrowding from any of the speakers. Movies are are powerful and engaging with very clear dialogue. I am more than very pleased with the seamless integration and exceptional performance that this speaker added to my Home Theatre.

    Nice Speaker - Needs tight subwoofer

    My goal with these speakers was to replicate the sound from my previous large speaker system with more aesthetically pleasing speakers to pass muster with my wife while retaining an audiophile sound. My original speaker system was a Klipsch 7.2 system anchored by large Forte IIIs ($1,800 each) and 2 ported Klipsch Reference 12" subwoofers. Obviously it is not possible to replace $1800 speakers with $500 ones and be happy with the result. When I replaced the Fortes as anticipated there was very noticeable hole in the lower mid/ upper base range as a result of going from a 12" woofer/ 10" passive radiator configuration to one with 4" drivers. The ML Motion's midrange to upper end was however very crisp and has a nice open soundstage. The folded motion tweeters I think are a bit more natural than the Forte's horns. To deal the lack of a tight lower end I changed the crossover for the Klipsch subs from 75 to 125hz to cover the lower end better but it still was lacking punch & definition. I concluded I had to fill the hole with a tighter non-ported subwoofer. I ordered a SVS non-ported SB-2000 12" 500W powered subwoofer (GREAT SUBWOOFER) to go along with one of my Klipsch subwoofers which went a long way to solve the problem. I set the crossover on the new SVS sub to 225hz to create an overlap at upper base and lower mid and it did the trick. Ultimately I have concluded that the Martin Logan SLM4 does a great job for it's amazingly small footprint, but it requires a subwoofer that can cross over above 200hz to make it really shine.

    Accurate sound reproduction

    5.1.4 system using all Kef, 750s front, 350s rear, 250 center, with dolby atmos q50a. Did it this way so my 5 floors all had 6.5 inch drivers and an accurately dispursed sound field. I dont like the sound near the screen but everywhere in the room. This setup does the job. Accuracy is rediculous. 750s are so spatial sounds like the center is on when it's just the 2 speakers in stereo.

    These are paired with Paradigm v12 difiance sub, but Im sure the kef cube would do just as well. Ideally these work best in a home theater but will not provide the bottom end you need without a sub, with the sub they are spectacular.

    Runing denon 3600 avr but added marantz 7055 amp for extra power. Listening to streaming music in stereo on these is an absolute pleasure. Kef delivers wonderful accurate sound reproduction with subdued highs, not overpowering like other brands, everything is there, but its not an "in your face" overdone speaker. B ans Os and Klipsch are great but too much blasting highs for me, listen to them all, it's all about personal preference. This is British audiophile sound at its best!!

    Cons: purchase of metal saucers to protect floors from spikes, but you get much better sound with these elevated off the floor in the stands. Make sure you position these ar least 2 feet from any adjacent walls. Had to buy the grills separately.

    Stunning sound reproduction

    These KEF 750Q's floor standing speakers are considered entry level into high-end audio. But believe me when I tell you they can hold their own vs speakers costing twice as much.

    The sound these speakers are capable of reproducing is brilliant.

    I can not recommend these enough at this price point.

    They deliver crystal clear highs and mids. The bass is tight and punchy. They do lack that super low bass that some people love.

    But for me they are perfection.

    And the build quality is just as good as the sound.

    I love the European walnut finish. And the adjustable legs. I have tile and they aren't always level. So the adjustable legs help a lot for leveling.

    You do have to install the base/legs but this is easy and takes less than 10 minutes. It's 10 bolts in all. Six hold the base and four legs.

    And if you need it they do have a mesh cover sold separately. I found them for $50 each. But when in use for the best sound you won't want these on any ways.

    I'm still breaking these in but all around happy with them from listening to music to movie night. These are a great quality speaker.

    If you are looking for high end audio you will find it in these.

    Beautiful sound-beautiful design!

    This is the second pair of hifi speakers I’ve had. I’ve always been know to my friends and family as the techy and audiophile. Lover of higher end quality products.

    KEF is not a brand everyone knows about. But those who do understand they hold weight in the audio industry. They hold their value as well.

    The KEF Uni-Q family of speakers are considered the value end of the spectrum. But they are far from budget. These speakers are high end and hifi if I’ve ever heard. The 4 driver design looks classy yet simplistic. But put out beautiful music/movie sound(use with projector). Sharp and crisp highs. They handle soo much sound that you wish these speakers 4 drivers were all uni-Q drivers. But the one is plenty. 2 speakers are active 2 are passive radiators I believe. Mids or vocals are clear. Not overly done. But balanced and punchy. You can hear every word clearly. The one part I would say that isn’t perfect is the bass. While great isn’t perfect in my opinion. I would say it’s strong but not as low as I like. But I’m running currently as a 2.0 set up. I’m used to an external sub. So that’s why. Still very very happy and border line in love.

    I love the cabinet in the walnut finish. I didn’t think I would love it as much. Because I’m an old school guy who loves everything black. But it’s real and lovely. Helps with the sound quality as well. These speakers do come with the sound saving bases which are very easy to install. Took me about 10 mins to install and adjust the height and level to my liking.

    I’m using 14 gauge pure copper oxygen free speaker wire without banana clips. And that’s perfect for me. Crystal clear sound. Music is pleasing soo much that I sit and just listen to music for hours. You do. It need to be right in the center. They disperse sound everywhere .Pushing these speakers with 125 watt per channel amp and that’s plenty tho these are rated for a little more power is need be.

    Overall these are the best speakers I’ve had thus far. Fair price point for the quality.

    You will not be disappointed with these KEF floor stand speakers. Amazing sound and beautiful to look at!

    Note: speaker grills are not included which is a bit disappointing as well. But not a deal breaker. My kids know not to touch daddy’s stuff.

    Good luck and happy shopping!

    Beautiful craftsmanship with crisp sound

    Being an audiophile, I was really looking forward to KEF’s new release of their Q series speakers and upgrading my current sound. The previous floor standing speakers we had in our movie room had dual 10” drivers with large horn tweeters so I had some doubt the KEFs would stand up against that amount of deep bass and power. I have owned KEFs before many years ago. One of the things that has always set them aside is the location of the tweeter being in the middle of the driver which produces multiple frequencies coming from the same location. Out of the box, the KEFs look absolutely stunning and high end with the European Walnut wood finish along with the exposed speakers down the entire cabinet; no, these do NOT come with speaker grills or covers which was a concern of mine because of small children in the house. After setting them up in place of my pre existing speakers using banana plugs, I decided to first try them out with several music genres. I turned off my other speakers and selected stereo sound to isolate the KEFs. I sat directly in the middle of room about ten feet away from the speakers and initially thought my center channel was still on; that was not the case after checking. I found it amazing that I was not able to pinpoint where the sound was coming from with my eyes closed and thought my other speakers in the room were still on. I then decided to switch to action movies with lots of special effect sounds and switched back to Dolby EX 5.1 surround sound. I immediately could tell the difference from my previous high end speakers as the sound was much more crisp while still providing plenty of low end with the 6 ½” drivers. Although not as much low end bass was being provided compared to four 10” drivers, pairing the KEFs with a subwoofer was plenty of sound for our movie room with 120” 4k projector. I ultimately purchased the separate speaker grills to attempt to protect my investment however do prefer the speakers being exposed because of how amazing they look. These are by far the best sounding speakers I have owned and would recommend these to any other audiophiles out there looking for amazing sound paired with beautiful aesthetics at a reasonable price.

    Great speakers for audiophiles on a tight budget

    I worked around aircraft for many years and have a constant ringing in my ears around 1.5-2Khz. That being said, mid level speakers (>$2K each) Who quality would be beyond my ability to hear. These speaker are my 2-ch application, in a 10x10 open concept room (3 walls only). My source is a Pioneer Elite PD-65 CD Player analog connected to a Pioneer Elite M-72 Power Amp. I only play two genres of music, Jazz and Smooth Jazz, but a variety of categories from brass to vocals to bass guitar. My big mistake, I was need able to hear the KEF Q750 in my listening space. I relied on reviews and specifications. My fortune, that these are perfect for me. I listened to a Harry Connick Jr piece that had the big band track, lots of trumpets and trombones and the high notes was bright not brittle! Vocals and midrange is spot on. The sound stage is perfect. The low end is crisp and fast. There is a caveat here, in Jazz most of the Instruments lowest frequency is 40 Hz and it does very well reproducing the bass violin. Of course Jazz Organist can bottom the foot pedals out at 12 Hz and the KEF Q750 won’t replay that. So, if you’re going to place the KEF Q750 in a movie environment, you’ll need subwoofers to get the thump of a car explosion. I know that there are many 2-ch applications anymore, but if you have a dedicated music listening space that is small and you are trying to decide on bookshelves with a sub or small floorstanders, get the KEF Q750!

    Bowers & Wilkins - 700 Series 3-way Floorstanding Speaker w/6" midrange, dual 6.5" bass (each) - Gloss Black
    Description

    Upgrade your home audio setup with these Bowers & Wilkins tower speakers. Gorgeous cabinets ensure the hi-fi quality is coupled with elegant style, and a Carbon Dome tweeter, midrange cone and two bass drivers cover a full-range of sound. These Bowers & Wilkins tower speakers support a frequency response of 46Hz - 28kHz for optimal music enjoyment.

    8 Features
  • 1" Carbon Dome Tweeter: Pinpoint imaging accuracy and detail resulting from a Carbon Coating on our aluminum Double Dome Tweeter. The closest performance to our Diamond Dome Tweeters.
  • Solid Body Tweeter: Milled from a solid block of aluminum, the solid body tweeter housing design creates an acoustically optimized housing for the tweeter – one that’s exceptionally inert and resistant to resonances. You'll enjoy smooth and clear highs.
  • 6" Continuum Midrange: Continnum is a woven material that blends control with flexibility. The result is breathtaking clarity right where you need it most- the midrange. Hear voices, guitars and other instruments in a whole new way.
  • Aerofoil Bass Drivers: Bass drivers need to be light, stiff and not ring like a bell. Aerofoil features incredibly light materials molded into a shape resembling an airplane wing for optimal rigidity and damping. Instead of hearing one-note bass, you'll hear colors and textures with power and control
  • Driver Decoupling: Decoupling places a shock-absorber between the cabinet and drivers to short circuit detail smearing distortion. The result is greater clarity and pinpoint imaging by reducing distortions that soften and blur what you hear.
  • 3- Way Design: Drivers are optimized for their specialized roles in reproducing high frequencies, mid frequencies and low frequencies. This results in better performance for all sounds.
  • Flowport: Reduces air turbulence for clearer bass by dimpling the flared port.
  • Magnetic grille: Remains acoustically transparent while protecting the speaker's components.

    Great clarity

    These speakers sound awesome but I have found them to be a little limited on the low end but the mids and highs are beautiful. I listen to a lot of rock and acoustic music and am finding I can hear instruments in songs that I had never heard before. The sound is very clear and crisp. I did add 2 SVS SB1000 subs that are set very quietly to add more low depth. I find I need this when listening to my more heavy rock albums. My hunch would be that these are not needed with acoustic, jazz or classical.

    The speakers are hooked up to a Marantz PM7000N with 2 subs as well. My listening is pretty evenly split between phono and streaming.

    These speakers are used for an audio only setup and no television.

    Amazing sound worth every penny

    I initially purchased a pair of B&W 684 S2, which were quite all right but did not exceed my expectations. Decided to do a lot more research and the outstanding staff at the service department of Best Buy allowed me to replace them with these wonderful speakers. Significant difference in mid and high response, improved bass, clarity, and separation. I think those Brits know what they're doing. I am using a McIntosh MAC6700 receiver to drive these speakers, with the lower end handled by a Velodyne SPL-2 10" sub. I understand the recommendation to 'break them in' for 70 hours before each one performs to its fullest potential. Nonetheless, the sound is amazing right out of the box. I very highly recommend these puppies. You will not be disappointed.

    A quality speaker well worth the cost.

    As one who has the entire T-Series Home Theater Speaker system from Polk Audio I feel more than qualified to write the following review.

    T50 Loud Speaker.

    The speaker is surprisingly well built, it's obvious Polk takes the design of their cabinets seriously.

    The speakers have rich bass that isn't overwhelming when used for movies and general TV watching, the Treble is vibrant and airy without being tinny sounding of full of hissing. All in all I'd have to say buy a pair of T50's and prepare to be impressed with the sound quality that Polk Audio has instilled in a pair of budget entry level Home Audio Speakers.

    Polk speakers equal best bang for the buck

    For the price these speakers are hard to beat. I was looking at pair of Sony speakers since I have a Sony receiver, but went with these based on the sales person's recommendation and my previous experience with Polk speakers. Sound quality is great and they look good too.

    Buy these! To hell with tiny shelf speakers!

    Great value! Awesome sound quality, and yes they even go with my/ our family room decor! With these, I brought the movie theater sound to my couch! Plus, I can crank up my Jimmy Buffett and feel like I’m at a concert! Now my neighbors really have a good reason to hate me! Ha!

    Good-looking, low-key, great sounding

    These replaced a mishmash of 1970s and 1980s-era Realistic and Fisher speakers, and some no-name center channel speaker I got at a pawn shop. It's not surprising, but these are light years ahead of my previous system. They play louder and sound great.

    I had considered getting Klipsch, but I read many reviews that said they were "bright and fatiguing," not to mention a really old design. I've never had ELAC speakers before -- they're a relatively new brand -- but so far I'm nothing but pleased.

    Best bang for buck tower speakers

    LOVE these speakers. I picked up 2 of them on their recent sale, Bestbuy had 2 in stock and they were great at price matching B&H photo so i got to pick them up rather than worry about shipping. Have them hooked up to a Denon S760 and they sound incredible. Took a bit to break them in and get them arranged properly in the room but they have a solid sound for music, movies, and video games. Strongly recommend if you're looking for a entry level Hifi setup but you don't want to spend an insane amount on speakers.

    Nated

    Had my speakers for a month. Definitely notice a difference in the sounds after the break in period. Originally, i thought i would need a sub. But the speakers provided plenty of base. Use in conjunction with my sonos unit. And the house rocks watching movies. Only probems was the laminated side was not properly glue on 1 speaker.

    Not as good as I had hoped.

    I'm a value-oriented audiophile. I've cycled through a lot of high end gear in my time, but as of the last few years I've focused on getting the most value for my buck. When the time came to purchase a small stereo set up for my study, I spent several months reviewing possible speakers to match up with my Yamaha R-N803 stereo receiver. The ELACs were on my list, as well as Definitive Technology 9020's, Bowers and Wilkins 603s, Martin Logan Motion 40s and Klipsch 820f's. All were floorstanders. I didn't have a problem with supplying a sub, I just wanted a speaker that was full-range and sounded good at any volume. I narrowed my choice down to the ELACs and Klipsch's.

    Cost factored in greatly in that decision, as well as numerous reviews that gave the ELACs a great rating. I was leery about buying the Klipsch's because I had the Synergy once upon a time and they were so tilted toward a harsh treble I couldn't listen to them. The new Klipsch 820's did get better reviews, but everything I had read about the ELACS said they were amazing. I felt like I couldn't lose.

    I purchased them and took them home. Giving them over a month of break-in time, I settled in for some serious listening. This is all connected to the Yamaha R-N803, with 100 watts per channel of RMS power. I have a Martin Logan sub to supply deep bass, with a crossover set at 60 Hz. The ELAC's were run full range, and I used the ARC built into the sub to set the bass up. Cables were Audioquest.

    I started with Tusk, a song by Fleetwood Mac. A set of congos is played prominently throughout the song. Some speakers really give you a solid impression of these hand-played drums, allowing you to hear the slap of the palms on them. The ELACs did not. There was a nice thump, with plenty of weight, but the realistic sound of the palms striking the surface were not there. The speakers were dark, with a rolled-off treble. Plenty of low-end weight and midrange fullness, but a very light treble that took away from the music for me.

    Next up, I played a song by Loreena McKennitt entitled, "Marco Polo." There's over 40 instruments in this song, and some speakers struggle to give you a feeling of the space and depth of the stage. The ELACs handled that part okay, but the lack of treble hurt the presentation. There were some instruments that I knew should be there, but they weren't showing up on the ELACs. They sounded veiled.

    Next up was Elton John's Curtains, off of his Captain Fantastic album. I have this on SACD, and love listening to the heavily emphasized toms throughout the track. The ELACs provided the low end depth, but again that lack of treble led to a boomy experience instead of the solid impact that I'm used to with this track.

    Moving on to one last song, I played Tool's 46 and 2. This song is a virtual torture test for speakers. Plenty of bass with double-kick impacts in several locations, screaming guitars, and brass that sometimes gets lost in the mix. The ELACs, at a lower volume, handled the song fine. As soon as I crept to 70% of volume, the sound grew hard and shrill as the ELACs lost their composure. They did not like to be played loud. I noticed several spots where cymbals should have been heard loud and clear, but sounded tinkly. The ELACs do not like to go loud and they do not like metal. My son turned to me at the end of the song and said, "I'm sorry but that sounded terrible."

    I too was very disappointed in the ELACs presentation. Just to be sure it wasn't my receiver, I hooked them up to a Rotel preamp with a 300 watt-per channel external amp that I use in my main system. Did they sound better? A tad, yes. But even with those great electronics they sounded lifeless.

    Past my return date for the speakers, which stunk. I saw the Klipsch 820s at Best Buy a couple of days ago for sale. Picked up a pair. Swapped them into my system with the Yamaha receiver, and what a difference!! The life that was absent from the ELACs was found in the Klipsch's. They brought a pleasant treble back into my system, and I wish I had bought them first.

    My suggestion for the ELACs: Pair them with bright sounding equipment. If you have equipment that seems harsh in the highs, the ELACs will tame that. And don't expect these to go loud. They lose composure too quickly. I would not buy these again given the opportunity.

    Definitely worth the price

    Hands down the best speakers I’ve owned. Currently using these speakers as left and right channel and these speakers are beautiful as well as sound great. Great mids and highs, however due to being thin they suffer when it comes to bass so make sure you have a sub. Installation was fairly simple, considering this is the first time I’ve installed any speakers on a wall. The only thing I wish as that it allowed the speaker wire to run down rather than on the side. Recommend having another one as a center, or even a Motion SLM. If you’re looking for great sounding speakers that take up no room then these are your speakers.

    A good center, with the right setup

    If you have at least a decent set of fronts and a sub, you should be happy. If you're looking for a full-range center and don't plan on having much else, you'll likely be disappointed. For the size and the price of this speaker I was expecting more mid-range. In fact, I actually had to take the cover off and physically touch the woofers to make sure they were working. As an isolated channel it sounds flat, but there is incredible clarity to voice dialog (which is the main point of a center). With support it works well, just use the receiver's crossover to let the sub handle the low frequencies. If you can't do that, then look elsewhere

    Great sound but needs some help

    I picked up a pair to start my home theater and figured they'd sound as good as the motion towers. The highs are good but no bass. They definitely need a subwoofer to reach full potential. Not many reviews anywhere but I did find one video that was helpful https://youtu.be/gwumAf4Eldg
