Yeah, they're not. I think thats about $100 too much.
I have had a few pairs of Sansui speakers. One like the towers in the CL ad but not towers. The pair I like the best (and the only Sansui pair I have left) are the SP-X3U's.

Probably Sansui's top speaker is the SP-11000. ??

Just my opinion.

Music........Listen to it loud and often!
(With a Sansui) I do, with an AU/TU-719, AU/TU-888, Eight AND Eight Deluxe, G-8000, G-871DB, 9090DB, AU-G99X, Z5000X, 7900Z, S-X1200, and SR-838.
Other......2230, SX-1010, KA-4002, Reference 650FET R.

I wonder if these are Classiques like my S-1150U's. Good rock and roll speakers and suitable for abuse, I don't care if I fry them. Definitely not worth $120, just more CL hype.
