Had a chance to visit Danny recently and spent a few days listening to ALL the most recent OB offerings and thought I'd write up separate reviews for each of them. This review is for the Super Mini.Initial Impressions
I was a bit hesitant to listen to the Super Mini, to be honest. I own their bigger brother, the Super 7s, so I knew they had good DNA. There was a good chance that they would sound good. But I also felt there was a good chance they wouldn't sound good. After all, how much can a single Neo3 and single Neo10 for the mids/highs really accomplish?Listening Notes
The first thing to note is the Super Mini is a 3 way speaker. So the open baffle bass section is doing a lot. We put on my First Watt BA3 amp and it just sounded incredible. Big, bold, punchy, not even a little bit "small" sounding. And the imaging was outstanding. In some ways even better than my Super 7s at home. Wow. OK, I was not expecting that at all! And they go LOUD. Overall I'd say they capture 85% of the magic that my Super 7s are capable of and that surprised me the most.
