Great bookshelf speakers in all regards: sounds great, looks great, and is backed up by great customer support. I think they're well priced.

Only downside? They're limited in their bass capabilities, by nature of their small form factor.

My room is a small office -- 10' x 12'. I listen to music all day while I work, and I don't get tired of these speakers.
