Reviews

Loudspeakers with a presence far larger than their physical stature, and which deliver a sonic performance that challenges other brands costing considerably more. Performance that needs to be auditioned in person to truly appreciate what they have to offer.

Firstly, I was caught off-guard by the unit's size. I'd looked it up online but hadn't bothered looking at the measurements. When you read all the specs for this speaker, particularly the reference to the omnidirectional woofer, the tweeters and the DSP-enabled 80 watt amplifier, you're expecting a beast. Well, I was at least.
