WINNER

In the great scheme of floorstanding loudspeakers, never has one offered so much for so little. This big, heavy box is superbly built and finished (especially in the optional piano gloss), and provides a performance to match. Powerful, spacious and detailed like nothing at the price, it gives a gripping, visceral sound, yet is smooth and refined too.
