When did the Boston Acoustics CR speakers come out?
I was the Director of Home Audio Product Development at Boston Acoustics from 1992-2003, so I can tell you something about these speakers.

Which is the best speaker in the CR series?
The CR7 was a favorite of BA’s president, Andy Kotsatos. For an inexpensive speaker using pretty ordinary components, it sounded truly excellent, with great balance and a very smooth FR. My favorite in the line was the CR8, which really did do the “where’s the sub” trick pretty well, especially for a 7” woofer.
