I purchased these after having borrowed a pair from a friend for a week to try with my newly bought Marantz M-CR610 They were excellent - and so I picked-up a pair for myself.
I listen to a lot of radio and spoken word as well as a fairly varied range of post-60's music (all sorts of electronica, blues, 90's indie, hip-hop and reggae / ska). They can handle a fair bit of bass, they give nice clarity and are a good all-round range. They look good and are sturdily built.
If you have a bit more space than my 10 foot x 10 foot room in which I use them you might consider the next size up, but they are more than adequate for my requirements. They are not bi-wireable if that makes a difference to you (it doesn't to me).
I'm not a hi-fi expert of audiophile by any means, but for under £150 I would be surprised if I could have found anything better. I'm sure that these cost half of what I paid about 15 years ago for a pair of Maudant Short speakers and these sound like they are worth twice of what I paid for those! They are well worth an audition at your local stockist.
