Fyne Audio F703SP loudspeaker review https://the-ear.net

Fyne Audio F703SP loudspeakers Surface area equals pi times the square of the radius is one of the equations that imposes immutable constraints on passive loudspeakers. Forgive the maths refresher, but the size of the driver or drivers has an effect on the lowest bass notes a speaker can produce, together with other parameters the […]

audio physic codex speaker review https://the-ear.net

Audio Physic Codex loudspeakers I last reviewed Audio Physic speakers some twenty-odd years ago. I remember that this German company had novel ways of solving problems, and the speakers were so good I was sad to see them go. In the intervening years their presence had all but faded away in the UK, so they […]

Elipson Heritage XLS 7 loudspeaker review https://the-ear.net

Elipson Heritage XLS 7 loudspeakers I have enjoyed several Elipson models over the years albeit not all of the company’s creations are to my taste, either aesthetically or sonically.

Oephi Immanence 2.5 loudspeakers Reviewing Oephi’s standmount Transcendence 2 earlier in the year gave me a taste for the fast, dynamic and frankly thrilling sound of this Danish cable maker’s loudspeakers, it didn’t take long before a request was put in for something bigger. That bigger speaker is the Immanence 2.5, which is not the […]

Morel Avyra 633 loudspeaker review https://the-ear.net

Morel Avyra 633 loudspeakers Having enjoyed so much the new Morel two-way Avyra 622 stand-mounts I was very excited at the prospect of trying the larger Avyra floorstanding loudspeakers.

Lyngdorf Cue-100 loudspeakers Regular readers may recall that I have reviewed two Lyngdorf amplifiers, the TDAI-1120 and the TDAI-3400, and been very impressed with both of them.

Neat Elite Classic loudspeaker review https://the-ear.net

Neat Elite Classic loudspeaker In 2022, Neat launched the first model in its Classic range with a new version of the legendary shoebox-sized Petite.

Acoustic Energy Corinium loudspeakers The name Corinium derives from way back in the day, when the Romans were in power and used it for what is now Cirencester,.

Morel Avyra 622 speaker review https://the-ear.net

Morel Avyra 622 speakers Having heard the new Morel Avyra 633 floorstanders on a recent visit to the Editor, I was keen to audition the smaller 622 standmounts from the same range and thought might work well in my acoustics. Morel is well known for its drive units which feature in designs from a range […]
