Amazing Sound From Small Speakers
from Edmond,OK on 12/4/2012
I think these speakers are the best bookshelf speakers, on the market and there at an amazing price. These speakers take and put out plenty of power,I have the sony sscn4000 sony's and there also great,And I have a pair of John Blue custom tower speakers and the ones I'm most pleased with are the sony ss-b 1000"s just a really good speaker sony could have asked much more for these.but there priced at a great price.

I've had 3 pair of these in their various cosmetic iterations for about 6 years. They are hands down my faves in the world of affordable bookshelves. I have a pair in my gameroom and with an old Sony receiver, they will indeed rock the house with good detail. Front firing port gives these things plenty of low-end. Tweeters in one pair are dead- a bit disappointing but again they have been pushed hard. I replaced the tweets with silk-domes, and they sound every bit as good as my far more expensive Energy bookshelves.

I am using the SS-B1000s as near field speakers in a desk top system with a nuforce DAC and Topping amp. The sound is punchy and vibrant with rock and smooth with classical and jazz. Why pay more?

Bought these speakers to use with Sony receiver DH-520 7.1, using as front left and right channel, cranked it up yesterday on 2 channel stereo setting, the sound of these speakers just blew me away, i even had my sub-woofer turned off, don't need that with these speakers. These are some powerful little things. Buy them, you can't go wrong with them. Great work Sony.

Got these speakers for my wife on Mother's day. We had an old stereo system who's speakers had gone bad and were too large for their new location. Knew the basics of impedance and power input needed, looked in stores then found these on-line. Sony was a great help. The speakers arrived in 5 days, no shipping charge, and were easy to set up. They even had wires included in the great price, in most stores there were lesser products, wires extra and even then not in stock.
