I have a pair of the Dayton Audio B652s, the original not the updates Air. I have them paired with an inexpensive Technics receiver from the early 90s and I like them a lot. I bought them in a bundle with a small Lepai amp for $50. They sound nice with the Lepai as well. The new ones reportedly have sweeter treble. They are less expensive purchased directly from Parts Express than through their Amazon store.
