    Yamaha NS-6490 reviews

    NS-6490 Bookshelf Speaker (Pair) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Speakers I've been holding onto my older front speakers for years due to their excellent sound quality but their size just plain bothered me (15 woofer). Over the years I had tried other bookshelf speakers to see if they would fit the bill but they just couldn't hold their own with low frequencies. I didn't want to leave that much to the subwoofer for music as it just doesn't sound right. These speakers sound absolutely amazing for their price range. The bass response is excellent. They are slightly larger then I would have preferred but well worth it. I only wish I had purchased these earlier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome for the price These speakers are quite amazing for their price. I just played a classical pipe organ number which has super low and super high frequencies and the speakers handled it like a champ. I took the fabric faces off to protect them from my cats and they look nice naked. I like their size - just right. Easy wire connections. Plain black finish is nothing special. I have mine sitting on the floor (the are about end table high ) but should sit nicely on a decent sized shelf. All in all I am very pleased with them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Value! These sound great in my small living room, stereo, with a high quality (non-ported) subwoofer. Though the drivers and enclosures are not high-end, the combo delivers the full mid-to-high range I was looking for -at an unbelievable price. Larger than normal book-shelfs and sporting 8 woofers, they also sound decent without a sub. The wire clips are spaced perfectly to insert standard dual banana plugs. Cons? None, at this price point.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yamaha NS-6490 Speakers In choosing a pair of bookshelf speakers to use as secondary speakers in second room, I chose the NS-6490s for three reasons: I've always liked Yamaha audio equipment, including three -way PA speakers, because it seems to have the most balance and "natural" sound. I've had relatively expensive speakers that "horn heavy": too bright; most book shelf speakers have a 5-6" woofer, whereas the NS-6490 have 8", which may afford more low end; the price. These speakers sound very good to me, fit where I needed them to fit and although I'd like more low end, I don't believe your going to get more from any speaker of this size and price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth at least twice the price. I bought these knowing little more than the brand was good and the specs were good. These speakers sound better than my floor standing speakers that cost three times more. Big sound in a small package!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased with these speakers I had looked at several different speakers before deciding to buy these. Most of the speakers in this price range were only two way speakers. These three way speakers sound fantastic and are more than adequate to handle wattage of the amplifier I have them hooked up to. I feel that I got a great value for my money and would absolutely order from this company again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, Yamaha only builds quality at any price I use many of Yamahas pro instruments and pro audio equipment. I have never been disappointed in a Yamaha product. These speakers for this price is incredible. Even frequency response, for some even is not what they want, many like overbearing bass which these will do if you turn your bass tone up just a little. For those who want big bass, position speakers in the corner of the room and on the floor. If you live in poverty like I do, you can't go wrong with these speakers, excellent value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice low cost speaker I have an earlier version of these same speakers as my front surround, purchased over 20 years ago and still sounding great. This new pair sounds every bit as good.
