These seem like good "honest" speakers--nothing spectacular but solidly engineered and priced well: only $150/pair. The looks? Well, kinda.....no nonsense.:emoji_thumbsup: And cone tweeters built by reputable companies can sound very good, but they just don't have a wide dispersion pattern.

Cambridge SoundWorks "Model Six" speakers

Wow, three pairs of these full-range speakers would only be $450--great for a nice, basic 6.0 DTS-ES/Dolby EX system. Just add a sub later. And great for playback of those multichannel music formats :D.

But, do they sound good?

FYI: The original Model Six (early 70's?) is still highly regarded by many classic speaker lovers. Here's a picture of it: (scruffy!) KLH Model Sixes

I've had a set for ~5 years---though they've been in storage for a while. I was planning on selling them, but after listening to them again, I'm getting ready to get another set and use them for my HT. Wonderful speakers--nothing comes close at the price. I just need to find a matching center speaker. Here's a pretty good review of them:

--pretty much sums up my feelings about them. I honestly don't know why I let them sit in storage for so long.

The Model Six really are a spectacular bargain that somehow became unpopular. I think it's because it's because CSW doesn't update their models too regularly. A couple months ago, ebay seller: hifi.com was selling refurb'd Model Six's for $90! I have no use for another pair of speakers but I came real close to buying the just because they were so cheap.

CSW also offers a 45 day in home trial for the new and refurb'd stuff they sell on ebay. Sometimes certain models on ebay go away for a week or two but they usually come back.
