I have had these Alpha 50 speakers for about 10 years, and I still brag about 'em. They are very bright. Crystal clear is almost not enough to describe. As said on other reviews, bottom end is not for "bass bombers", tonecontrols at level, but I live in old wooden house, and found out that bass level rises just to perfect level, if almost no space is left between speaker and wall. Perhaps they are designed so, that decorating a room won't need compromises, because speakers cannot be placed... (read more)

i've had 4 of these on my HT for about 3+years now and must say that i'm still loving every minute of these. but if you really want this speaker to show it stuff you MUST bi-amp them and only then do they come to life otherwise-so-so- i'd say...all are bi-amped with 4outlaw monoblocks 200wpc on the bottom and 7125 outlaw amp 7@ 125wpc on the mid & top end.. with a outlaw 990 pre/pro and after the speakers are good and broke in , that's when you can really give these bad boys some...

These speakers create a sound stage that is way better than anything else I've heard in this price range.
The slight color in the midbass region (audible in, for instance, David Sylvian's baritone voice) is present when compared to high-end transmission lines, and the problem (if you could call it a problem) magically disappears when the sub (a Rel Strata) is switched on and configured correctly. Don't ask me what causes this - I've configured the sub to only cover 30 Hz and lower (the... (read more)

I purchased a brand new home theatre system with the following components. Harman Kardon 3550 AV Receiver, Alpha 50 Floor Standing Front Speakers, Alpha 20 Rear Book Shelf speakers, Alpha Center & Alpha sub. I then watched Gladiator and I'm proud to say that I 've got what I wanted. The audio effect is good too. I think this is an excellent combination and will give many years of listening pleasure.

I recently purchased a pair of these, mostly based on recommendations from reviews I've read. I was quite excited to be hooking them up to my 75 watt x 2 Harmon Kardon HK 3375 receiver, but, only for a moment. Although the mids and highs were clear and natural, as anticipated, the lows were very weak and light. Upon switching back and forth between the Alpha 50's and my old speakers, which are half the price of the Alpha 50's, my wife and I both agreed that although the Alpha 50's had a... (read more)

BEING AN AUDIOPHILE, I HAD A DIFFICULT TIME PERSUADING MY WIFE WHO IS A HOME CINEMA FANATIC, TO GIVE UP OUR BELOVED B&W 604'S. THE 604'S WERE EXCELLENT AS MAIN L-R FOR OUR 5.1 SYSTEM, BUT JUST DID NOT BRING OUT THE BEST OF AUDIO WHETHER IT WERE MP3, CD, SACD OR DVD-AUDIO.
I HAD HEARD THE INFINITY DELTA 60'S BEFORE, AND WAS IMPRESSED WITH THEIR ABILITY TO PLAY QUITE LOUD AND WITH QUALITY BUT THEY WERE MORE OR LESS IN THE SAME LEAGUE WITH THE 604'S, WITH THE B&W'S HAVING THE UPPER HAND. BUT... (read more)
