I own a set of SBS-02's that I was using as a HT / 2ch setup. They are not very revealing and would be better suited for HT than strictly music. They sound better during loud playback and excel in HT (coupled with a Klipsch sub). I was driving these with a 3312CI at near reference volumes (between -4db and 0db) and they rock the house, plain and simple. At these volumes, music is actually decent and you can listen to them for long sessions since they are not fatiguing at all. You need a sub, these speakers don't put out much less than around 100hz usable. They also need to be toed in almost directly at the listener, otherwise the vocals lose their focus and the subtle sounds become too muted. In all, they are OK music speakers and do much better for HT.
I got these mostly to satisfy my curiousity since they were on sale for $150 a pair (plus I wanted a cheap 5.1 for a second room). I also picked up the $100 SCS-02 to use as a center channel. Dialog from this speaker isn't very clear either but I'm comparing a Def-Tech Mythos Ten with it so it's hardly a fair comparison. However, I don't think you can do better than the SVS at $150 a pair. These are now in my computer room as I have a small TV and a simple 5.1 setup in there.
