no distortion then they should be fine.

Some(dare I say Many/most) like the sound of distortion and hence, don't view it as a bad thing.

misterwebb, if "hi bass" is a loudness button, then I bet at higher volumes, you are getting distortion(unless that feature automatically shuts off at higher volumes). If you really want some bass, I suggest getting a sub and an amp(you wouldn't have to spend a ton of money to get a significant amount of bass compared to what you have).

Good luck with your setup.
