They are incredible. I was really happy with the midrange sound, and the non-tinny highs. Not that I had issue with the SFs, but older speakers I did. Super well-rounded speaker. I demoed in a room similar to mine, but with lower end equipment. I was shocked how great they sounded right off the bat. I just demoed with Postal Service - Give Up tracks 1 and 2; Save the Day - Through Being cool tracks 1 and 2; and Iron and Wine - Our Endless Numbered Days tracks 1 and 2. Plus some funk the seller liked. The bass he had set up is almost ideally what I liked; but he had never used them for movies... so I'll be exploring that this weekend. I wanted big speakers to fill my house. I got em.
