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. Along with new cloth covers

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

All in All a fabulous set of quality English loudspeakers – which our audiophile will be sad to see go 🙁
