More than 18 months ago I got a chance to listen to the bookshelf speakers at DrPhoto's.
Here is what I said at that time regarding those speakers.
"I also got a chance to listen to the bookshelf speakers. These have the same VIFA* woofer as the nOrh 4.0’s. I think that the tweeter is a SEAS, but not positive. These are not very big, but a very heavy for their size.
The knuckle rap test let me know these are well made cabinets.
These image very well too, and reminded me very much of the 4.0’s. I didn’t have mine to AB with the bookshelf Odyssey’s, but it seemed like the ODG’s went just a bit lower than the nOrhs, and I couldn’t hear any cabinet coloration either. Take this with a grain of salt though as I did not do a direct AB comparison.
These bookshelf speakers image very very well. They throw soundstage to the outsides of the speakers and have a very well defined soundstage between the speakers. Very deep too. They have a sloped front baffle for time alignment."
* Looks like I was wrong on that woofer. http://www.harmonicdiscord.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3607&highlight=vanessa
Scott, very nicely done.
Klaus, congrats on a very nice review of your speakers. I'm glad they are getting mainline reviews now and the recognition they have deserved for quite a while.
