      I'm using these speakers together with another 2-way (mid-range/tweeter) pair, driven by a Sony STR-DH100 receiver, for listening to classical music. They're absolutely excellent. The entire frequency range is strong and clear. There's more than enough bass for the most demanding music. I can't recommend these enough - they're excellent.

      Good Speakers for the money

      Very basic sound, no clear highs, mids or lows. After installing crossovers they sound better, but nothing special.

          Wanted to add a set of floor standing speakers to my system without taking up whole lot of room. I already had a pair of Sony B1000 Book Shelf Speakers and these were a great addition. They fill the room up with clear rich sound and a full bass. Shipping was carefully packed and arrived a full day ahead of schedule.

            Other reveiwers have commented on this models lack of clarity and lack of bass.My experiments in A/B speaker tests,against Yamaha,Technics and Bose speakers show that this is not true.I was surprised how good the bass was for a 8 inch woofer.Clarity could be a bit better,but,it was no worse than a Technics 3way,a Bose interaudio,2way,and a Bose 2way 201,both with 6 inch woofers.It was first place in bass.

                    I'm sure you can find better speakers, but probably not for the price. I owned a pair of Sony bookshelf speakers that I was very happy with for the past 20 years. They were great! These are even better. I am not an audiophile, but they produce clear sounds from the upper registers to the low without the need of an extra sub-woofer and I can get lost in the music without breaking the budget.

                        Nice speakers for a stereo or home entertainment system. I use my for a stereo setup as primary speakers and very satisfied with the sound. No need for a subwoofer with these - plenty of bass, good highs, not bad on midrange. Overall a good bargain and nice quality product from Sony.

                            for the money you won't find a better speaker. Don't purchase these if you're looking for bass boomers, but if you're looking for a quality speaker with great clarity there probably isn't a better deal.

                            Sound is full range from good base to very high treble. For this pricepoint you can't find a better speaker.

                                I had been shopping for a good pair of replacement speakers and I read good ratings on these. I would not consider these 'bookshelf' speakers because of the dimensions. The speakers themselves look great and fit well with any black motif. These ain't no Klipsch speakers but they do sound great and don't break the bank. These stack up well to polkaudio speakers. The high end is very crisp and clear. The midrange is tight. The low end is a tad muddy but still very good. I would highly recommend these speakers if you can get them at a good price.

                                    Comments about Sony SS-B3000 3-Way Bookshelf Speakers:

                                    A few years back, I bought a pair of Sony SS-MB350H speakers. These were mounted on the walls in our Community Center as part of a new PA system. It is really two rooms with a foldable divider wall. I mounted one in each room. They do a wonderful job when we combine the rooms for large meetings, and they sound terrific! So six months later when we needed new speakers in our school gymnasium with attached stage (we are a small town with a small school), I bought another pair. Amazingly, with proper placement, they fill the gym quite well.
                                    Recently, our little town decided to break the winter blues by putting on an amutuer Cabaret show in the Community Center. During the first rehersal, I realized that we needed two more speakers to support the sound for live musical numbers. From the specs, I could see that the SS-B3000 is the current incarnation of the SS-MB350H, and still at a great price. So I bought a pair and added one each on the other side of the rooms.
                                    Wow! With the new ported bass reflex design, they sound even better than the SS-MB350H's (but match pretty well). And it's amazing how much power these things can handle without breaking up (but I try not to push them).
                                    I haven't tried any of the other speakers in this line, but with the B&H great price and free shipping, I don't think you could beat the SS-B3000 pair or one of it's brothers for small to medium stereo and PA systems.

                                      A great value for the price. They look very nice in the bookshelves in my office. The clarity and range of sound is very good for bookshelf speakers. Would definitely recommend for an application such as an office or small living room.

                                              These speakers are a classic design. They are well constructed, especially for the price. I was surprised how big they actually are, and I don't see them fitting on a normal bookshelf. The sound quality is good, but the mids are lacking a bit of range in my opinion. Overall a great buy for the $$$.

                                                Like most of the other reviews, the sound of these speakers are pretty decent throughout their range. Bass is adequate but don't expect the world at this price. I purchased these for our cottage stereo/tv and I'm happy with the results. If this was for everyday use or larger rooms, I'd keep looking. Lastly, these are fairly sizable so be sure to measure your intended "bookshelf".

                                                  Much better than flat screen speakers and great for listening to Sirious radio. Probably could have gotten smaller ones.
