I bought these about a year ago, 10/10 would recommend especially for a desktop listening setup. The front port means you can hug them as close as you want to against the wall. The mids are amazing, and paired with a solid sub they are even more fun.

i guess the price is not low enough to interest people. Its very close to retail
This may be a dumb question but this is for 1 speaker only right

Yea it looks like it. If you want to add another one is 100$+
Anyone knowledgeable can comment on how these may be better than Pioneer BS22 that goes often on sale for $60 pair
mahee
There is a drop for the Pioneer BS22 that just started.

Somehow its not listed under 'audiophile' drops. I guess BS22 is not considered an audiophile speaker by MD ;)
I've had these for a few years, I really love them. Bass is actually pretty okay, depending on what you're used to. Really though, the mids and highs are super detailed. I especially enjoy the sound of horns and vocals, though electronic tracks with a lot of detail also stand out. Just keep in mind, as others have said, if you really love your bass, you'll want a sub.
what kind of connections do they have? HDMI? RCA? BT? thanks

These are passive speakers, so they only have binding posts to connect them to an amplifier. No HDMI/RCA/BT or anything like that.

5-way binding posts. Just your average speaker wire will do.
Purchased these from wavecrest over a year ago. I highly recommend them as entry level speakers, they work wonderfully near-field. Especially a paired with a good subwoofer. The focus of these speakers is in primarily mids so don't expect the deepest bass response in the world.

A speaker this size is not likely to produce tons of bass anyway. I would also like to point out that measurements [official ones here: https://www.wavecrestaudio.com/products/hvl-1-two-way-loudspeaker-pair, another set here: http://noaudiophile.com/Wave_Crest_Audio_HLV-1/] indicate that they are quite close to being neutral, not mid-focused. You could probably get these flat to 50Hz, and maybe even lower, with some EQ or DSP if you have a decent amp. I would recommend at least 50W/ch for these, or double that if you are using a cheap class D/class T amp like the ones SMSL makes since they will sound like garbage at their rated output power.
