TechRadar's verdict

"This monitor offers superb midband neutrality and exceptional clarity even with unfamiliar music, handling timing, dynamic range, grip and imaging really well. You need a lot of power to drive it, though, and it lacks some warmth and weight"
For
  • A genuinely neutral monitor
  • Fine timing
  • Outstanding dynamic range and grip
  • Excellent stereo soundstaging
Against
  • Lacks a little warmth and welly low down
  • Top end could be sweeter
  • Recent price rise is unfortunate
