` Comments from Simon Rhodes `
@These speakers don't shout at you. They just gently open your ears to a whole new world of appreciation. At the beginning of many sounds there is a brief burst of activity before the sound settles down. Our microphones, mixing consoles and tape machines pick it up, but our traditional loudspeakers do not react quickly enough to reproduce it. As a result, much of the colour that is being shaped in the studio is not being faithfully reacted in our homes.
@These speakers, however, are so responsive this lost detail has at last started to be revealed. As a consequence I find that their reproduction of certain instruments is the best I've ever heard.
