Conclusion from Larry Greenhill's review in Stereophile:
"The Snell Type E/III is a "find," a real value: high-end sound for under $1200, stands included. Their bass response alone competes with more than one loudspeaker that has been nominated for Class A ratings in our "Recommended Components" feature. Some, but not all, of the strengths of this speaker can be heard with inexpensive electronics. The Type E's high efficiency means that it can be included in many budget systems, where more money can be spent on the loudspeaker and less on power amplification. If low-powered, substandard amplifiers like the ca-1970 Lafayette Criterion can make the Type E/IIIs play, then powerful, high-end, solid-state amplifiers really make them sing. The ease of setup and upper-bass warmth, coupled with a clear midrange and smooth, if unobtrusive highs make the Snell Type E/IIIs one of my favorite loudspeakers."
