Can't praise these speakers enough! Superbly solidly built and they really perform. The clarity and brilliance of all tones, from the deepest bass to the top trebles, is just top notch. Although I would say this is when the bass boost switch is not used, which just muddies the bass a bit. Whether it's heavy rock or quiet classical solo guitar, they really do the business. If you have to nit-pick the supplied cables (speaker connection cable; power; phono) are all fairly short - but this is easily remedied; it would be easier if the power switch was combined with the volume knob on the front of the unit rather than the rear. If you want small/medium size monitors, at an excellent price, I think it would be difficult to better these!
