I'm planning on getting these bookshelf speakers for use with my Yamaha receiver in a room about 16' x 16'. I'll be getting an SVS PB1 ISD mind you, for the bass. I haven't been able to hear these anywhere (don't think they're even sold with dealers anyhow) nor have I seen much mention of them here.

Does anyone have these, and how do they sound with music? It's what I will be mainly using them for.

If these speakers aren't very good, are there any recommendations for a pair of bookshelves that would cost the same as these.

They are great speakers!!

disclaimer: I help moderate the Ascend forum.

They have an excellent reputation for music and HT. Very well balanced.

Clear. Very clear. Watch out for bad recordings though.

And I'm not related to Ascend in any way whatsoever. :)

You'd be hard pressed to beat the 170's for the price. Great speakers.

Ascend is an internet only company...meaning you won't find them at any "dealer" store. Ascend has great customer service and you can't lose with their 30-day money back guarantee (well, I guess you do lose shipping, but still...)

Check out the Ascend forum that Curtis linked to.
Good luck.
