Superb from Beethoven to Pink Floyd to action movies (with Sony SACS9 sub).
I bought a pair of these great speakers to pair with a Sony STR-ZA3000ES, a beautiful beast of an AVR that I recently bought from World Wide Stereo. They look beautiful and are sounding absolutely superb flanking our 50-inch plasma set in our 15 × 15 × 8 family room that opens on one side to a dining area. After spending a few hours tweaking positioning for their best sound in the room, they are mounted on 31-inch stands positioned 70 inches apart, 7.5 inches away from the wall, and for movies, receive backup from my fine 3-year-old workhorse gem of a sub, a Sony SACS9. I am using very affordable 12 AWG pure oxygen-free copper speaker cables with banana connectors. Cutting to the chase, they are excellent to my ears, room-filling, and in my opinion deserve the accolades they have received from other professional and consumer reviewers. My wife liked them very much as soon as she saw and heard them. I am especially impressed by how they remain beautifully clear, balanced, dynamic, and composed with any genre of music or source you throw at them and when playing at any volume level. They do not ever break a sweat from a subtle whisper in the background all the way to the fairly high volumes at which we sometimes listen with explosive action movies. The 5.12-inch woofer drivers with rear ports produce good, clean, well-defined bass - to a decent point. They do indeed benefit from my SACS subwoofer, especially with action movies loaded with LFE or music oriented around bass or more bass with extra bass. However, if your music just needs a little more cowbell, the bass produced by the SSCS5 may be good enough for your ears. You will need to judge for yourself, and opt in or out regarding a subwoofer to help fill out with the basement frequencies. Moving on to the midrange. To my ears, the midrange is simply glorious, fantastic, and flawless with these speakers. 'Nuff said. The .98-inch tweeter and .75-inch supertweeter add amazing clarity and sparkle in the right amounts at the top frequencies. I find myself now enjoying things I hear in the high end that previously escaped my notice or attention before. I now hear those high-frequency jewels in our music and movies. Things in my music and movie collections that I have always enjoyed just sound better to me with these Sony speakers. They are a vast improvement over our older but well-regarded soundbar. My expanding and well-researched Sony system is excellent, and these SSCS5 speakers fit right in with very high quality in terms of build, materials, engineering, design, price, and most importantly - superb sound that connects me with my music and movies. I highly recommend them to include in your audition list, and I highly recommend World Wide Stereo.
