Wimped out on my audio equipment purchase
Henry Kloss is a respected member of the audio industry because of his eary involvement in designing speakers that marked the continued improvement of audio reproduction. However, the rest of the industry has passed him by since about the 80's.
Cambridge Soundworks leverages Henry Kloss much like Bose leverages Dr Amar Bose - marketing. But if sticking a prestigious name on a product made it good, then Isuzu should have sold a lot of those Lotus-tuned Impulses. Other brands associated with Henry Kloss - KLH and Advent, both also less than stellar. These may have been impressive brands some time in the distant past but not anymore, and Cambridge Soundworks was never a serious condenter then or now. Reviews of Cambridge Soundworks speakers are mostly polite nods to Kloss, and typically take the tone of "it's not that bad".
To Cambridge Soundworks' credit, the company genuinely tries to make products that have a particular sound. And their products are of good workmanship.
So what you have are speakers that are well made from cheap materials, sound neither faithful nor colorful, and are sold at price points that make them neither good values nor unquestionably expensive.
But it's your money. Hope it works out for you. Personally, I think the Onkyo HT760 with a real receiver, real amplifiers, and real speakers is a better choice in the price range you are shopping. Wish we lived closer so you can hear my Pinnacle/Dahlquist speaker system - talk about an inexpensive, clean, and loud set of cones.
