I know nothing about these speakers, but very interesting. Didn't realise Sony made such exotic gear.

How do they sound?

I also haven't tried many bookshelves my self, I sort of stop my hifi nirvana journey on a pair of Teledyne AR9, and as a comparison, I'm quite amaze that a Sony can make a sound like these. The top end is actually more crisper than the AR, maybe it's the neodymium magnets, the 3 dimensional and depths are comparable but obviously the AR fills the room a bit more. 


And just like the AR, it needs a decent amp to make it sounds to it's full potential and if I can make a small imperfection side note, the bottom end is not as extended, but we are comparing a 4.5" with a twin 12" in an infinite baflle 120L box.


I've heard Tannoy 605's, Bose 301's and a pair of mission that I don't  remember the model and I prefer the Sony, the soundstage, the imaging are similar but the sony has more detail and the high is so much clearer and sweeter.

And lolz, while we're at it, check out the gear that kenwood, jvc and pioneer were making back in the 70's (droooooll).

Some more info on the net, the housing is not actually aluminium, but it's die cast magnesium alloy and it is time aligned design and  carbon tweeter with neodymium magnet, which explains the sweet highs.

These are from Sony's ES series which is their elite product. As the logo on the side indicates, they are an ED product which means extended range, i.e frequency response, which Sony promoted to go with SACD and it's extended range over CD.

These are really a satellite speaker intended to be used with a sub-woofer and/or as rear speakers.

Here is a link to an article about the range when it was released in 2001.

A well-engineered product and probably under-appreciated as happened with many of Sony's speaker offerings.
