Great sound, bass are deep, (something over ), but vinyl records play wonderfull.
Mid range are very expresive, but control help to reduce some.
Tweeter are are so weak, is not clear highs.
Heavy weight cabinet, robust made.
Very nice wood.

re: SB-X500A

Since the cones and grids were a bit dirty from the years, I decided to disassemble the speakers to clean them and "surprise", they were badly connected; the polarity of the woofer was reversed, so it was out of phase, the cause of exaggerated serious. In addition, the midrange terminal was connected with the tweeter drive and the tweeter drive with the midrange drive. Once made the connections according to what corresponds (after reviewing the outputs from the crossover) have remained as they left the factory and its sound is superb. Everything works perfectly.
Again Technics has far exceeded my expectations.
