They sound pretty good! They have a nice, clear but not harsh treble end, and the bass is surprisingly good for a small speaker without being earth-shattering (the spec says it goes down to 69Hz).
The mids are slightly muted, giving them a comfortable, pleasing sound that I quite liked.
I appreciated the flexibility of having three different inputs. You can, for instance, plug your computer into the RCAs (using the supplied cable), your DJ controller into the 1/4″ balanced inputs, and if you want to listen to music from your phone, plug that in to the 1/8″ socket on the front.
This means you don’t need to be continually plugging and unplugging things. Bear in mind though that as soon as you plug something into the Aux input, that cancels out the other two. Worth knowing if for some reason you want to leave something plugged in there permanently, or play it alongside the other inputs.westasound.com
