TechRadar's verdict

"Not a great rocker, but this genuine high-end reproducer sets the standard for natural realism of voices and acoustic instruments"
  • <p>Magnificent midband with great coherence</p><p>Fine neutrality</p><p>Exceptional low-level detailing</p><p>Delivers pin-point stereo imaging</p>
  • <p>Limited bass weight and loudness capability is less well suited to rock</p><p>Can be system fussy</p><p>Needs to be well clear of rearward wall</p>
