    Need some bookshelves for fronts to go with a new system. Looks like the tiny mighty Dayton will be the sub and need some inexpensive bookshelves to go with it. Probably a center to match also if that is the preferred way. I figure I'll pick up some cheap surrounds for now and upgrade those later.

    How are the Yamaha NS 333's?

    For a rock bottom bargain solution.. The Yamaha NS series deliver. I do find it funny, they are called NS (Natural Sound) They have to be some of the least natural sounding speakers out there. lol

    I hooked up a system a few weeks ago.. Cheapo Sherwood 6.1 with some ultra bargain Yamaha NS stuff that had like 8" bass drivers in them, 3 way like $30 each, no sub. I had to admit, for the money spent, they guy did real well for the performance he is getting for HT. For music, the speakers definetly have a nasal sort of quality though the owner thought it/they sounded great still. He was comming from an Awai or whatever they are called really cheapo HTIB thingy. The ultra bargain system, I am sure blew that thing right away, but I never heard it before the change.

    I'd have to agree, I think N stands for "Nasal" not natural, because I owned the older 8" 3-ways some time ago, and that's exactly how they sounded. The good thing was, I only paid $18 for the pair brand new (double the difference price match) and they worked great for surrounds at the time. I sold them for much more than I bought them for, so basically, I MADE money off those speakers [​IMG]
