Acoustic Research Status S 40


I've owned these for 2 years now, and during that time I was very much into the headphones hobby, where I've heard over 35 expensive headphones (akg, sennheiser, grado, beyerdynamic,etymotic) and also tried 5 other speakers. After all that time and...

smooth, warm, relaxing, no fatique. deep bass for price

sometimes cannot handle the most fast and complex passages, might sound colored for some ears

i have to admit i bought these without listening before but im student and cant afford buying hifi equipment in a, i can truely say they are all worth the money (how could they be not...100 euro)from my point of view: if you can get a pair of...

These are similar to some other AR speakers I've owned. I dont think they are as good as some old AR-2ax's I used to have. They are basically $200 speakers. I got itch to try them out after reading the reviews here, but they just aren't that great....

Decent AR sound. Decent resolution in the highs. Decent bass extension

Lacking detail. Imaging is almost non-existant. Mid-frequencies sound pretty bad. Bland Tone. Sloppy bass, not tight. Distorted Bass

I am re-Reviewing the Status-S50 I own several sets of speakers (s50 wharedale emerald em-97 and Mission 77ds. (also center and sub) After using the S50- 77ds combination in my old home I found this to be a quite satisfying experience. however when i...

Exeptional midrange and highs excellant esound stage very good bass. Video shielded. High power handling. (They get very loud at 60 watts) I use a Pioneer Elite VSX-24 (90 watts and I really dont need any more watts)

Only a (3)6.5 inch woofers so you definitely need a sub for the ground shaking home theater experience. Musically not necessary. They are 46 inches tall so if youre not putting them in corners or next to a big screen they may look out of place. (some...
