Several months ago I bought a pair of MBOW1s, thinking I would use them in our small TV room. They are so good (and very beautiful, naturally) they're now in our living room. We even took them along with us on vacation--with a Van Alstine Ultimate 70 and my iBook. So much pleasure in such a small package.
Great imaging, transparency, realism. I thought they wouldn't have enough "punch" for our good-sized living room, but they play plenty loud enough. And what's more important, they play so beautifully. They're on some fairly heavy Studio Tech stands. We are using a PSB subwoofer below 55 Hz or so.
I'm a happy customer, and just wanted to share it!
