I built a pair and use them in my home office. I run the line out from my laptop into an older Sony receiver and I love them. I use them without a subwoofer, but the office space is small and they are placed close to wall boundaries where I get some reinforcement in the bass. They sound very full even at low volumes, but they'll play cleanly at volumes louder than I would ever listen! Build them...they are really excellent little performers!
