Just purchased a pair of Yamaha DBR10 speakers, tried them out today and I'm very impressed! Vocals are superb and music playback is sweet (no ear fatigue) Sound is clear, warm and loud!! I had a Pair of Yamaha DXR8s and these sound just as good or better. I'm using the new Allen and Heath ZED6FX mixer and its a perfect package for me. If you are looking for a powered speaker that wont break the bank but sound just as good as the "more expensive" speakers you can't go wrong with these! (very good bass for my needs, but for even more bass maybe go with the DBR12 or DBR15s) I also, love you get a 7 year warranty from Yamaha directly with these! Best warranty in the business, even longer warranty than QSC speakers and best of all they are 24 pounds!
