TechRadar's verdict

"With its predecessor's gorgeous cabinetwork plus a number of engineering improvements, this is a tasty compact floorstander with a lovely midband. On the downside, it has a tendency to emphasise both the top and the bottom of the audio band"
For
  • <p>Deep lacquered finish over a range of coloured or wood surfaces, plus a proper plinth</p><p>Smooth and neutral midband</p><p>Fine, open voice reproduction</p>
Against
  • <p>Spikes can't be properly locked</p><p>Sounds best at low volume levels</p><p>Turning it up makes the mild bass and treble excess a little obvious</p>
