I had some time now, to listen to your Bookshelfs. I paired them with a Pinnacle subwoofer and I am amazed! The highs are smooth, the bass is tight, and with my sub goes down to 30hz! Phenominal combination! The sound is very detailed, dynamic and smooth! Great product!--Joachim

I received the speakers and had an extended listening session last night. Paired with a Polk sub, all I can say is that the sound is phenomenal! The imaging is outstanding, as is the transparency. More than that, I could hear "textures" in the sound that even my old speakers (Linnaeums with ribbon tweeters) did not bring out. This is the best $200 I have ever spent on audio. You guys have an amazing product. I'll be back to buy more. --Brian

EMP Impression Series E55Ti Tower Speakers First Look
Bass output is something that EMP has been known for. They often rate their speakers conservatively. We found that the E5Ti's, in our review, had better in-room response than the specs suggested, and we feel confident that these new speakers will perform similarly. According to EMP Tek, the E55Tis are rated down to 40Hz. To read the full review click here...

EMP Tek Impression IMP-7.1-2 Review
The EMP Tek Impression range is another in a long line of impressive speaker systems to hit the TrustedReviews test bench recently, providing sophisticated, detailed sound quality, elegant looks and amazing build quality. If you’re after a little extra oomph in the bass department you might have more joy from some of its similarly-priced rivals, but for most people this system really will leave a lasting impression.
