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...

Great value, great soundz

 

I have these hooked to a Sony STR-DA5300ES as my starter speakers before going full blown surround. They work great for COD4 despite the full range dynamic sound nature of the game. Now I am reconsidering my plans for a Klipsch surround system and just...

For the size, good full range. Can handle some power. Great price if you find the best channels. (Picked up from a Sony Outlet new for $40)

Very old school design. (could be a good thing tho)

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

Nothing but good.

 

I am a college student and needed a good pair of speakers. These speakers are great. The bass can shake the floor if you want it to, and music sounds very pleasing. I only paid 80 dollars for these speakers and hooked them up to my very nice pioneer...

Good sound, good bass, cheap, cool looking

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
