KEF Blade loudspeakers $32,000 Review

“My first listening experience with the KEFs was at an audio show several years ago where I also listened to the big YGs. What instantly impressed me was the Blades sounded as good as the $120,000 YGs that were driven by $150,000 worth of electronics. Some large floor standing loudspeakers sound “big” no matter what is playing. The Blades could act and sound like a small studio monitor when the music required it. Then when the music was large scale, as with a recording of Beethoven’s Ninth, the Blades took advantage of their full stature to realistically recreate the experience of being seated in a concert hall listening to a full symphony orchestra and chorus performing the monumental work. And doing that without individual objects in the sound stage being inflated or sounding exaggerated.”

AEQUO AUDIO ENSIS SPEAKERS REVIEW

“The Outer Shell is a sandwich construction of hard woods on the outside and softer woods on the inside pressed with special in-house built hydraulic press with 20t of force. A total 9 layers of wood are pressed together into a compact shell strong enough to support the weight of a car: 3 layers of ultra-stiff wood, followed by 2 layers of softer wood, each of different thickness and divided by another thin layer, then finished with another 3 layers of ultra-stiff wood. This combination is still very thin but with the lowest possible amount of resonance in the entire frequency spectrum.”

ALBEDO AUDIO APTICA SPEAKERS REVIEW

” Despite its given size Aptica purr with much more momentum than one might assume from the causal visual grasp. Aptica’s ability to render music fully, even at low level listening makes them interesting for many contemporary audiophiles, that are seeking higher resolution at lower volume levels.”

KEF Q350 Review

” The ambient noises are fleshed out with plenty of detail, and the way various noises interact with each other makes musical sense thanks to the KEFs’ well-timed presentation. The metronome ticking throughout the piece sounds pristine, with precise edges slicing off bits of time.”

Magico Q5 loudspeakers Review

“The four-way, sealed-box design includes Magico’s new MBe-1 beryllium-dome tweeter plus four drivers with Nano-Tec cones. The Beryllium has a high ratio of stiffness to mass, and breakup modes far beyond the audioband. The Nano-cones, designed by Magico and assembled from parts sourced from around the world, consisted of a 6″ midrange, a 9″ midbass, and two 9″ woofers. None has a dustcap, and all feature sandwiches of Rohacell foam coated with carbon nanotubes to produce unusually stiff yet lightweight cones claimed to behave pistonically within their operating bandwidths.”
