Way better than they have any right to be at the price. I got them based on reviews in audiophile magazines, and was astonished. These things are amazing. Right out of the box, they actually sounded TOO bass-heavy and not very detailed, but after about a week of break-in play, they loosened up a bit and really began to show off what they can do. They do need gobs of good, clean power, so you won't get their best with an underpowered receiver, but in a smallish room, at anything lower than rock-concert loudness, they do an outstanding job, with detail and clarity that amazed me. On a good set of stands (mine are 28" high) and placed about 2 feet from the back wall, they outperformed the $500/pair speakers they replaced by a mile.
