Sony SS-B3000 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Reviewed

The Sony SS-B3000 offers an impressive amount of engineering and soundquality for its very low price. It sounds like a budget speaker attimes, but not overtly, and not at the expense of its overallmusicality and coherence. Its atypical size may make...

Sony SS-B3000 Performance Bookshelf Speaker (Pair)


Is it possible to have high quality sound for under $100? Yes, and these Sony SS-B3000 are proof. I bought these as my primary stereo system speakers and also hooked them up to a TV which receives several digital music channels via cable. At 21 inches...

Great sound for their size

Outstanding quality, very modest cost


It is rare to find bookshelf speakers in this price range with 5 inch woofers. All others I researched were 4 inch or less. When I saw the listed price I thought it was for a single speaker but was pleasantly surprised to see it was for the pair.

GREAT buy!


One of the best speaker purchases I've made in a long time! If nothing else, this is a great value buy. Powering them with an old Harmon Kardon AVR 20ii 5.1 channel receiver, these things are really performing. Very good bass and overall body once...

The 1" tweeter is tiny and very directional. I ended up purchasing the SS-F6000's anyway (same tweeter, same issue) so between the 4 speaker towers I get full high frequency coverage of the room, but the directionality is very noticeable otherwise ;...

So close Sony. Good speakers that could be great.


For lower end speakers, you are unlikely to find a better deal than these Sony speakers. The sound is quite surprising for the price you pay and they easily match up to speakers that cost double what you normally pay for these. For the non-audiophile...

very inexpensive. awesome performance to price ratio

No proper crossover. Mid-range driver a little small

Amazing Value


For the money, I just don't know how you could do better. These speakers image really well and are well balanced in terms of bass, mid, and highs. That said - these are not audiophile quality speakers. They do an amazing job for what they are and will...

Double Up and blow the house down!


I have a 7.1 Sony receiver, and for the side, and surround speaker channels. I made a combination of two Sony # SS- B 1000, and two Sony# SS- B 3000. HOW? One SS - 1000 in series, with a SS - 3000. Then the same, with the other two. Then connect both...

The name "SONY" says it all. Everything top quality

Great speakers for the price!


I'm all about value and these speakers are, without a doubt, the best sound you will ever get for under $100! I am an electronics engineer and I have heard very few speakers this SIZE that sound this good, but NONE that are even close to this price...

3-way bookshelves to die for!


I've been a serious audiophyle since the early 70's. From early simple stereo to the latest surround sound wonders I'm always obsessed with sound quality. I just converted my garage into a pool room and the new Sony's provide all the beautiful dynamic...
