Pros Cons
  • Beautiful cherry finish; good build quality, plenty of bass (almost no need for subwoofer), bi-ampable.
  • Occasionally too bright.
This speaker is well constructed and beautiful in cherry. Produces plenty of bass that renders my subwoofer nearly useless - except in the very low (below 30 Hz) registers where the subwoofer finally has something to clearly contribute. No complaints at all for home theater: it's crisp and robust. The matching CSI-A6 center speaker is a great partner and blends perfectly. For music, it's punchy and dynamic, but tenor voices are occasionally over-powering and can benefit from minor EQ or treble adjustment. Percussion and stringed instruments become three-dimensional when not filtered - though crash cymbals can seem exaggerated when not attenuated. Best when run "full range" or "large," but that may more be the result of my AVR and/or listening environment. A separate pre-amp seemed to add noticeable clarity and depth at moderately loud (-20db ref.) levels. At lower levels, a loss of subtlety occurs, but not sure whether that could be remedied with better gear.
