Pros: These would be great for fronts on a higher end Video system as they blend in well with most big TVs. I use them in a stereo set up in my RedNeck Bar. They need no sub, but I do have a 2K sub in the system. I use a Bob Carver SunFire 600X2 amp with a lot of power, but since the woofers on these have built in amps, you can make great music with these using a small amp. I have two Carver 40 watt tube amps to mono block with these being assembled now, and that should sound great with these speakers. You do not need a lot of power to get an excellent sound with these.
Cons: The sound is just great! These are the rolled aluminum style so popular today. Being old school, actually prefer the look of the big wooden box speakers.
Other Thoughts: If you can find a place, you need to audition speakers before you pay $4K as speakers sound so different. What pleases one might turn another off. If you don't have that option, just buy these. I have friends who are audio nuts, and these can hang with most they have and other things I have.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING
Pros: Broad balance sound stage, deep deep bass, perfect highs no sibilance. Everything is crisp clean deep hard soft smooth...... you get the idea. I got the STS's first, and kept comparing them to a friends 15,000 Paigae's, it was no competition. Every time I heard his I foudn more and more at fault with the STS's. So I found the ST's here for an insane price and decided to try the upgrade
Cons: NOT ONE! If I had to nit pick. There is a relatively narrow sweet spot where all thee sounds converge. that may be my apartmetn though. These are rather large speakers. They weigh about 90 lbs each, but they are gorgeous, stately, and fit in any modern decor
Other Thoughts: Im no longer jealous of my friends $15,000 speakers. They may have a bit of an edge reproducing the way sound moves through spaces (I swear it sounds like things are moving toward you and away, and all he has is a 2 speakers stereo setup). But the 14,000 difference, and the insanely high quality of these leaves me extremely happy
