A nice listen indeed. Speakers that want you to know they’re there – they have a very engaging sound.

Very efficient speakers (94db!) – they will get the most out of your amp. Some of the most ‘elegant & engaging’ speakers we have heard for a while.

The cabinetry is also impressive & of great style with unique front baffles & real walnut veneer – these have been refinished by 54 FiveSix.

Electronics have been checked and we are very impressed with the componentry used. When the crossovers were analysed on the oscilloscope – all looked great – very high quality indeed! All capacitors removed from board & measured – All within range – impressive to say the least.

All original drivers – Consecutive serial numbers indicate a factory matched pair.

All in All a fabulous set of quality English loudspeakers.
