Exactly what I expected
This review is from: SONY SS-B1000 120W Bookshelf Speakers Pair
Pros: Decent bass response for the size, and they handle about 60 watts RMS clearly. (about 40% volume on a 100w Kenwood receiver)
Cons: If you want audiophile sound, these aren't it. They're a tad bit boomy, mids are weak, and a bit of sibilance is present. ...but what do you expect for the price?
Other Thoughts: These are Sony speakers. Sony has never been synonymous with Canton, Klipsch, Martin Logan, B&W, or other higher end manufacturers. They provide value line products, and that's exactly what these speakers are. I bought them for my garage, after the foam rings on my JBL J50's disintegrated. They do the job perfectly. The fact that they're refurbs shouldn't dissuade you. The cabinets were in perfect condition upon arrival, and my guess is the drivers were replaced as part of the refurb. You cannot tell by looking at them. For the price, these are win for their intended purpose. If you want main speakers for a bedroom or an apartment, spend more money and get something better. I will give them this though. They sound better than the JBLs ever did.
