Fantastic sound, but a few issues
First things first, if you're interested in the sound quality, it's top notch. I'd definitely give these speakers five stars for sound alone.
My old speakers were Yamaha MSP 10 Studio speakers and they didn't sound nearly as clean and were missing a bit in the lows. For some reason the Yamaha's were way more expensive and felt like they were designed to require the sub woofer, which I had, but didn't always like using. After years of listening to these speakers that a friend of mine has, I decided to get rid of the Yamaha's and replace them with the new Event 20/20bas speakers.
The biggest let down for me with these speakers is the fact that barely 3 months after purchasing them, one speaker simply stopped powering up. I checked everything I could (power cable, fuse, power source, etc) and contacted both Sweetwater and Event Audio to no avail. The speaker was dead and I needed a replacement. Since it was beyond 30-90 days, I was stuck paying shipping back to Event Audio for a replacement. Sweetwater was extremely helpful throughout the process, however, and in hindsight I wonder if I should have gone through them for the replacement. Event Audio took several weeks to get my replacement to me and when it arrived, it was slightly different. The new version of these speakers no longer includes the RCA input jack, so I have one speaker with an RCA in and one without. Other than that, they're identical, however.
The build quality feels and looks fantastic, but it's obviously not without it's flaws. I really wanted to rate these speakers higher because they sound so great and the original model (which my friend has) seems to be of superior quality as they've lasted many, many years with heavy use, whereas the new model which I have has already needed replacement in less than a year with moderate use.
