Well, I did bite and bought them - however, someone was selling one they had brand new on Ebay.
All I can say is mercy, mercy - they are some nice sounding speakers.

As of now they are my favorite budget-friendly speakers. They are well built and have a nice crossover
in them.

A clear choice for me over HTD Level Two, Infinity, Polk, Klipsch, Sound Appeal, Micca 42x, Pioneer.

I favor them over my former budget friendly champ - the Cambridge S30. And these things are selling
now/still for around $100 a pair. However, they do not have that typical $100 signature sound.

I also prefer them over the original Paradigm Atom, Titan and the original PSB Alpha - which sold for
more, and they are better built than them.

So, it is a mystery to me how they get this nice sound quality. They have been discontinued, yet there
are still some around.

^ Thanks again for the heads up. Really a shame they have been discontinued though. And who is Intellitouch? I only saw that speaker and it looks like they make some wall mounting brackets.

Okay, thanks. It looks like it was their only speaker, and probably not promoted. Glad to read that you enjoyed them as much as you did.
Only passive wired bookshelf speakers - not marketed well in the USA - however sold
in six different countries. The bookshelf speaker sold for $100 - however, are built like
some speakers that are sold for over $249 a pair.

are not that hard to drive and really do get loud, with plenty of room left on the
volume control - and are being driven by a 100 watt Tascam receiver. The box
is a true 1/2 inch cabinet all the way around, and not chip board - and they do
have a true 12 db octave crossover on the woofer and tweeter (6 parts).

Frequency Response 70Hz-20kHz +/-3dB
Sensitivity 83dB @ 2volts/1 meter
Nominal impedance 4 ohms
Crossover frequency 3.5kHz
Power handling 25 watts (50 watts peak)
Drive components 1 in. silk dome driver with 5.5 in. woofer
Dimensions 10.0h x 7.0w x 7.25d
Speaker Enclosure Bass Reflex
Weight 8.25 Lbs. for each speaker
Cabinet Finish Black Ash
Speaker Connectors Binding Posts

^ Hmmm, I wonder how their wireless speakers sound. I may have to test out a pair. Thanks for all that info, zieg!

Well... on second thought, I think I'll pass. No specs on these, and between the speakers and transmitter, it could be over a $600 test if they don't except returns :(.

I am not too impressed with what I see with the wireless speaker system - should only
sound fair at best - and not worth the effort and money.

Another owner who has recently bought these speakers said, that they did out perform
and are clearly better than the Pioneer (which I already knew) - and that they stand up
and pretty much hold their own against his Energy RC-10 speakers.

This is the rare gem, that I have been looking for - and is better than my former S30
bookshelf speakers.

I have made some phone calls and am trying to confirm where these speakers can be
found and bought, with on hand stock.

Also, since there is a big emotional wave ride for the RBH r5bi speakers, I may buy and
test them against the IntelliTouch. The EOS already has the weight over them.
