No-one could fail to be impressed by Whatmough’s P33s. They’re finished in a superb Bubinga real wood veneer (a metallic duco is also available) and stand 1.2 metres tall on a 260×430mm footprint. But more than that, they’re shaped more like pieces of modern sculpture than loudspeakers.
S stands for ‘Super Power’ according to Exposure but it could just as easily stand for ‘Second Generation’ because the 2010S is a higher-powered version of the earlier 2010.
When purchasing a home theatre speaker system few consumers realise that the centre-channel speaker is the most critical and most important speaker in the entire set-up.
This 25cm cube produces seemingly miraculous levels of bass energy from one of the smallest subs we’ve ever seen. What the…?
ProAc’s new TriTowers are like no other narrow-profile ‘tower’ speakers delivering not only superb midrange sound but also bass you’ll never previously have heard from a tower design.
Edgar Kramer isn’t easily impressed and is even more rarely at a loss for words so the fact that Boulder’s new 865 affected both these senses should have you reading this exclusive world first review.
Another Italian brand spells further bar-raising.
The Bowers & Wilkins 705 is a large stand-mount two way design that uses high quality proprietary drivers that are the culmination of a rather long technical evolution.
What makes the new Tryptix speakers so dramatically different from anything Krix has ever done before is that their cabinets are made from plastic… or to be more precise from acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (aka ‘ABS’).
Bowers & Wilkins has over the past few years been delivering a few loudspeaker models clearly designed to work well with modern display equipment. Essentially the challenge is to reduce the size of the speakers so that they can be placed nearer to plasmas and LCDs without poking out from the wall. With the VM6 loudspeakers B&W has achieved just this.
