|The Sony SS-B1000 may fall in the category of bookshelf speakers, but is more than capable of accommodating any room in the house. Equipped with an advanced tweeter design, Nano-Fine Balanced Dome technology enables these Sony bookshelf speakers to deliver a 80-50,000 Hz frequency response, which offers a broader range of tones and a sound that is much closer to the artist’s original recording. This advanced design results in high-resolution audio reproduction to ensure that every bass line, every lyric, and every note pumps out of the stereo speakers in crystal-clear clarity. The sound quality of the Sony SS-B1000 is enhanced by the quality of the woofer design. Constructed of Kevlar Highly Oriented Polyolefin (HOP) fiber, the Sony bookshelf speakers feature the combination of strength and low mass needed to deliver an optimal response. As an added bonus, these stereo speakers are compact, which makes placing them throughout the house a hassle-free experience. The Sony SS-B1000 is an excellent choice for music lovers who want to enjoy their tunes the way they were meant to be heard.|

I bought these Speakers to use as the rear surround speakers in a 7.1 Surround Configuration. I am a long time user of Sony Audio & Video Consumer products as I believe that Sony gives Big Performance at a Great Value, and these Small Speakers do not disappoint. The size is perfect as a rear surround speaker and the sound quality is right up to par with what I expected. Also, the appearance of the speakers are of high quality and look good in any living room/media room situation. In my Opinion, these Speakers deliver Pleasing Performance, Good Quality, and Great Value.
The adage "You get what you pay for" usually applies to electronic, even when paired with a reputable name like Sony. I am happy to report that the sound from these speakers sounds much "richer" than what I paid for them.
Sound quality is subjective, however, and usually a matter of , listener's ear, comparison, application. I would like to consider myself an audiophile on a budget (I know what sounds good, even if I know I can't afford it). With that being said, its not any of the big tag brands. The kinds of speakers that are sold in their own stores, but these speakers will hold their own against most any brand that can be found at your neighboring electronics store or department. I am using these speakers as rear fill/surround in a carpeted medium sized room. They are paired with Sony towers, center and sub.
Assuming you are shopping for the right speaker (your expectation, doesn't exceed your wallet or reality) then rest assure; these speakers, more than likely, will be meet your need.
These speakers are excellent for a small to medium size room, an enclosed porch,or outdoor gazebo.Good sound without the overkill of other speaker sets(unless you want to blast a hole in the wall).Very reasonably priced and just the right size to place just about anywhere you wish.The speakers look good too and will go well with just about any decor.Hook these up to your receiver with a subwoofer,and you'll be enjoying your favorite music or live sporting events with just enough Ooompf that it will get your heart beating a little bit faster.Did I mention that these are Sony? A quality name brand that has been producing qulity products for decades!
These speakers sound a little forward or "honky" in the mid-range. If you have an equalizer, reduce the 1kHz by 3-6 dB and the 2kHz by 3dB, then they sound pretty good. A subwoofer is a must! Bring in the sub at around 80-100Hz and don't have it too loud!
For the money these little speakers are great. I have them connected to a Harmon/Kardon AV135 which, isn't the most powerful amp but it's a nice, quality unit for the money. I also have a Sony active sub with the same finish as the bookshelf speakers so they match and look very stylish the rest of my AV stuff. For 40 dollars and on a budget these speakers and my 100 dollar sub sound great together.
