The Sony Sound Experience 

Looking for the perfect floorstanding speaker for your stereo system? Looking for excellent sound quality from a name you can trust? Ready to have the kind of soundstage-stereo experience only Sony can deliver? Look no further than the Sony SS-CS3 3-Way Floorstanding Speaker - these beauties come equipped with superior audio engineering in one perfect, floorstanding-speaker-sized package. 

The Hifi Difference 

The part of the speaker that makes sound is called a driver. Every speaker -- the speakers in your headphones, your earbuds, and your favorite devices -- has these. Most speakers use full-range drivers, but these tend to muddy subtle, complex, and layered sounds. True high-fidelity speakers, like the SS-CS3, make up for this by using three different types of drivers for specific kinds of sounds: tweeters for high ranges, squawkers for the middle ranges, and woofers for bass. 

The Super Tweeter Advantage 

Looking for the richest, clearest, most natural highs? Look no further than the performance delivered by the SS-CS3’s ¾” super tweeter. This little wonder is specially designed to deliver an ultra-responsive, wide-dispersion, high-frequency listening experience -- perfect for human voices. Plus, it’s paired with a 1” polyester tweeter for a great upper midrange sound that only a Sony floor standing speaker can deliver.  

Two Unique Woofers 

Perhaps the SS-CS3’s most impressive feature is in its pair of 5¼” woofers. Driven by unique dual-layer mica foam diaphragms, their upper surfaces deliver rich, subtle, and faithful sound quality, while the bottom layer delivers an incredible depth of response with its low weight and great strength, which gives the Sony SS speakers their trademark boom.  

Sony’s Best Bass 

Prepare to be mesmerized by the incredibly fast and powerful bass response! With a dedicated front-firing reflex port and fine timing alignment across the entire frequency range, the SS-CS3 realizes deep, rich, natural bass. Rock your senses and give your music the foundation it deserves. 

Created for Premium Sound 

With its incredibly precise reproduction, positioning, and depth, the SS-CS3 delivers a rich, full soundstage. Fill your room with wave after wave of amazingly detailed sound and feel the energy and passion of the original performance, the way the artist intended.  

Sony = Superior Construction  

Featuring careful component selection, meticulous construction, and outstanding attention to detail, our SS-CS3 is built to a better standard than any other speaker in its price range. Experience the difference a truly high-end speaker system makes, even on a more medium-sized budget.  

Build the Complete Set 

Ready to expand your stereo system? Our SS-CS3’s are just one part of Sony’s CS sound system. Check out the SS-CS8 center channel, and SA-CS9 subwoofer to flood your home theater with bright, clear Sony sound.

High Quality at Low Price
All I can say is that these speakers blow away most speakers at 4 x the price point. Well designed and meticulously built. A must buy for anyone seriously into hi res.

Love how there are things I never heard before coming from these new Sony Speakers. I have a 5.1 system, and I'm hearing realistic sounds that sometimes I mistake for REAL sounds....birds, doorbells, dogs barking, car horns..... LOVE the realistic sound and the WIDE range these speakers have.

Awesome Audio
I am impressed by the Awesome Audio from these speakers. I replaced speakers that were almost fourteen years that required a volume adjust between voice and other audio. If the voice was too low I had to raise the volume and then lower the volume for other audio and vice versa. With the Sony Speakers one setting for volume between voice and other audio is all that is required for watching movies. There are audio in previous viewed movies that I have never heard before. Great choice for Speakers!

Great quality speaker
I recently bought a few units of the Sony SS-CS3 to replace my aging Sony SS-MF550H speakers. While not as large or as bass heavy as the MF550H, the CS3 definitely sounds more balanced when paired with the new Sony receiver, STR-DN1060. This is especially true at bass frequencies. While the older MF550H delivers a lot of punch at the same volume, the CS3 seems to be capturing the lower frequencies with much more finesse, even though it has two smaller woofers compared to the 8-inch Kevlar found on the MF550H. The trebles are cleaner too, especially with the speaker nets removed. It is obvious that Sony has tuned the CS3 for High-Resolution Audio playback, with the speaker placing a substantial accent on treble reproduction. Having said that however, it is clear that the CS3 does not deliver enough bass to power a full-sized home theatre system. I am currently using a 6.1 configuration (5 SS-CS3 for front and surround channels and 1 SS-CS8 for the center speaker) in my 10" by 14" living room, and the bass is lacking whenever my old Sony subwoofer is turned off. Hopefully Sony Malaysia will bring in the much needed SS-CS9 (the matching subwoofer) soon.

Bought this pair about a month ago to use in conjunction with my subwoofers. Very happy I did. They work very well with my two Sony 12 inch subwoofers. These towers exhibit excellent mid range and with the supertweeter along with the main tweeter have excellent treble response. Very satisfied with this purchase. Thank you.

Bought a pair. Wonderful audio range, especially when paired with the SA-CS9 subwoofer. Also, nice size for a standing speaker; does not overwhelm the average size room.

How do speakers hook to Samsung TV model un43mu6300fx2a?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2017
  The speakers require a stereo or surround sound receiver/amplifier that is connected to your TV to amplify the speakers. They are not self-amplifier speakers.
