They are back with a VENGEANCE - $160 Time Owned: more than 12 months.
However, I give this speaker a 5/5 at the price I purchased mine at - $99. They are back with a VENGEANCE - $160 plus shipping.
YIKES - Id like another one but may wait till I visit their booth at Dayton to hope for one at perhaps a "Dayton" price. Seems they know they got a winner! This speaker is great for the radio room!

Not worth the $$ Time Owned: 3 to 6 months.
I too tried this speaker because of all the hype I heard about it. Well to me it sounded muddy and dull. Sure it sounds better than the built in speaker but any speaker would if it is pointed at you. I use a Sony book shelf speaker on my 850 and it has a much fuller sound than the Sounds Sweet. I also have an Optimus pair and some Dalquist monitors and they all sound better than this one. Save your self some money and buy a nice pair of bookshelf speakers. Your ears will thank you.

Hope they return soon! Time Owned: 6 to 12 months.
Recommend the purchase. I just enjoy the easy listening with my sounds sweet speaker.

When will production and shipping resume?

I want to recommend to friends when you are back in the groove.

Not bad Time Owned: more than 12 months.
This is a decent speaker and cuts noise. But cuts a lot of upper frequency response too. So you wont be pulling someone out of the mud with this one. I have a NCS audio switcher so I can mix this with my SP-20 and brighten it up a little bit. Very large and hard to place in the location a speaker should be. sits pretty high on my shelves which does not help.

Makes a great ragchewing speaker.

Sets the standard. Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I have had mine since December of 2004. I am to the point that my friends bring their rig to my house to see how it should sound. It is big... but I no longer even notice it in the shack. I would buy again.

SUPER & EXPENSIVE Time Owned: 6 to 12 months.
I love mine, but don't buy it if you cannot afford it. It's not THAT GOOD.

Great value! Time Owned: more than 12 months.
What can I say that hasn't already been said about this speaker. I was using the SP-23 external speaker that is designed for my Icom 756Pro3 and I had the Sounds Sweet connected to another rig. I changed my station around and hooked the SS up to the Pro3. What a difference! It blows away the SP-23 designed for the Icom. Very little white noise, and great SSB audio. Why wasn't I using it with the Icom 756Pro3 before? Guess I liked the look of the SP-23. Foolish! Buy one. You won't be sorry!

Highly Recomend Time Owned: 6 to 12 months.
Used with a 756 Pro and all I can say is wow! It seems expensive but the sound is truly great. I thought maybe it was just me but everyone who comes to my shack remarks on the audio quality.

I also really enjoy the speaker on AM broadcast and SWL.

Worth the money Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I really do enjoy this speaker, tailored nicely for the audio spectrum we use.

Yes it is big and bulky and black but my IC 756PRO has never sounded better. Makes showing off your hobby a pleasure.
