I bought these speaker more then 1 year ago, I must say that I've been really pleased with my purchase, the kind of music I listen to is very bass driven, mainly electronic music with loads of sounds and deep pumping baseline, before deciding to buy the speakers I went to a shop to listen to them and was quite impressed, I then decided to buy them and never looked back, the price was decent, the style is great, and the sound is very good… Read Full Review

Firstly I'm impressed by the looking of these speakers, really quite nice! After trying the sound, it's not bad too, high/low pitch, bass all good, I especially love the way to turn it load, very beating. Then I decided to take it! Basically quite worth the money!… Read Full Review

decidedly average sounding, wich i suppose for the price is all u can ask, i did notice there is a rather large flat spot in the audio range, they seem to be all bass and treble but rather lacking in the mid range section. If you are concidering buying a set of these i would reccomend also buying a small set of bookshelf speakers to add to the mid range sound.... All in all good looks, not a bad sound and good value… Read Full Review

I have had my set for 6 years now, along with another pair of acoustic floor-standers which are "power house 2000 series" much larger than "av1" series and just as good value 4 money. i run these together with two of acoustics mini subs with a denon pma-255 uk amp.Sound comes from Cambridge audio separates cd player and modified x-box 360 ltd edition, witch sounds great!. i make my own tunes with music software, so i sometimes plug the laptop in 2 the amp and hey presto recording studio! i… Read Full Review

Overall i am very happy with my pair of acoustics and they have really proven to be tough old gals as well!! i recommend them for the starter enthusiast who is looking to upgrade from a packaged speaker set with an AV amp!! These speakers are very good value for money, i paid £50 for the pair about 4 years ago! I do run some quality gale speaker cable though and it does make a difference!

I too run the 5.1 set up of these speakers and use them with the Yamaha sub that came with my old Yamaha RX-V396rds amp, I have only got praise for these speakers- I binned the small speakers that came with the amp as they lacked midrange and bought these frm Currys as they were brand new and clearance boxed stock-Wow when they settled in after around 2 weeks, I was so impressed! The bass is kicking even with the sub off line and the treble and midrange are tight and cut through the bass for… Read Full Review

Just got a mint pair of Acoustic Solutions AV120 for 12 quid, yes that 12 British Pounds. They have a solid sound, although the bass can boom with cab resonance, and I think they can't be properly designed reflex speakers with a reflex baffle and tuned tube and port. Probably just a hole in the back. Mids are a bit harsh, and the freq separation is a bit ho hum. They have a generally good sound, actually, think beefed up and slightly tighter midi system speakers and you are there. OK the last… Read Full Review

I have had a pair of these AV120 speakers for about 6 years. I still have them! Don't get me wrong my home cinema kit isn't brilliant, I have a Sherwood amp and Celestion surrounds. These speakers kick some butt for the dosh. I have a reasonable sized lounge: 15 ft square, unless you want to annoy the neighbours I don't think you need a sub with these. The bass is loud and sounds good across wood flooring. I would recommend these to any student or lower budgeted sound listener.
Go on, buy some!… Read Full Review

If you are skint , look no further. They are medium efficiency, so 30 watt per channel amps are minimum required to be able to crank up the volume without clipping.
Use a good front end and amp however and they perform way beyond the price on most music. Used this way they are a good choice for someone who has bought a high quality CD player, a good turntable ( yes vinyl still lives), with a mid to high end amp and run out of money. These will do fine until better speakers can be afforded.

When I saw these Acoustic Solutions AV120 stereo speakers over a year and a half ago for £50 in Currys they immediately caught my eye, mainly because I didn't think they would sell floorstanders in Currys!
I thought I'd give them a go anyway, I figured even if they were rubbish it's not too much money to loose out on.
To my amazement when I got them home and hooked them up to my amp (which was then a Sony TAFE 570) they really surprised me. The bass was punchy and loud, perfectly… Read Full Review

The Acoustic Solutions AV120 Stereo speakers perform well in the high and middle ranges, but the base is confused, with some irritating resonances and I am sure develops marked non-linearities at higher volumes. Never really creates a convincing base image. OK for some classical music but lousy for indie pop… Read Full Review

Yes there are better out there, but not for this money, the Acoustic Solutions AV120 are £49.99 at currys so I took a chance, ended up £39.99 at the check out.
Got them home hooked them up to a Dennon DCD 825 CD
Musical Fidelity Elektra E11 amp with a pair of Audio Henly Interconneccts, I know this is 4-5 year old kit, All I can say is after running in, is they kept up with Female Vocals, Said bring it on to Lenny Kravits, and kept up with Hard house& Psy Trance, Have not checked them out on… Read Full Review
