PMC prodigy1 loudspeaker review

PMC prodigy1 loudspeaker It’s incredible to think that the last design from PMC that I tried was the company’s first domestic product, which was back in 1991 when co-founder Adrian Loader brought his LB1 transmission line to Hi-Fi News. So much has changed and now PMC has grown to become something of a legend in […]

Buchardt S400 MkII loudspeaker review

Buchardt S400 MkII loudspeakers I faced an awkward dichotomy in deciding when to pen this review because, while eager to share news of a very exciting product I am aware that, once published, the review samples will have to be shipped back to the manufacturer and I would like to enjoy them for as long […]

Goldenear BRX review

Goldenear BRX loudspeakers It’s a bit of a novelty to have the Goldenear BRXs in my system, I can’t recall having had any of their loudspeakers through my hands before, although I’ve heard plenty and talked about Sandy Gross’ designs at various audio shows. Before establishing this label in 2010, he’s founded Polk back in […]

falcon m10 review

Falcon Acoustics M10 loudspeakers Having heard the phenomenal sound created by the Falcon Acoustics M10 mini monitor at both the Warsaw and Bristol hi-fi shows I was eager to try them in my own system. On both occasions they were being received with some rapture, and rightly so in my view. Harking back, in many […]

Revival Audio Atalante 3 review

Revival Audio Atalante 3 loudspeaker Life as an audio reviewer is always more satisfying when a product like the Atalante 3 sounds at least as good if not better in one’s own system as it did at a hi-fi show. Such it was with this two-way standmount from a relative newcomer to market. Revival Audio […]

3 Square Audio Ayal review

3 Square Audio Ayal loudspeakers These 3 Square Audio Ayal loudspeakers should not do what they do. There. I’ve said it. I first heard and saw these diminutive Darth Vader-esque speakers at a recent audio show. I kept looking for… a larger speaker, a subwoofer, anything, but all I could find was this small, beautifully-finished, slightly unconventional-looking […]

B&W 705 S3 review

Bowers & Wilkins 705 S3 loudspeaker The 705 S3 is the least expensive tweeter-on-top loudspeaker in Bowers & Wilkins 700 series which was relaunched in series 3 form last September. It replaced the CM series and added trickle down tech from the mighty 800 series Diamond with Continuum cones, Aerofoil bass drivers and Carbon dome tweeters. […]

Element Firev2 0253

Totem Element Fire V2 loudspeaker The Element Fire V2 marks the beginning of Totem’s top-tier Element range. The V2 badge denotes improvements, most notably to the crossover and both drive units, and is said to have made the speakers easier to drive and position compared to the previous model. Canadian company Totem is a brand […]


Triangle Magellan Duetto 40th anniversary loudspeakers The Triangle Magellan Duetto is an example of how different countries around the globe tend, on the whole, to produce loudspeakers of a certain characteristic. And one generally either loves them or loathes them en masse. Usually, the manufacturers will create a sound which appeals to their home audience; […]


We are in the high end territory that is Sonus faber, a brand whose products I have drooled over at countless hi-fi shows and, yet, have never had the pleasure of trying in my own system. Excitingly, that was about to change with the Olympica Nova 1 standmount two-way. History and ethos Sonus faber is […]

NEAT main

A landmark speaker to mark British brand Neat’s 30th birthday is something to celebrate as they launch a new version of the popular Petite compact. I like celebratory products and was excited when Neat announced a special-edition of its shoebox-sized Petite two-way to mark the company’s anniversary. The product has special memories for me because […]

Seeing that Monitor Audio is celebrating its 50th birthday, it seems an ideal opportunity to look at one of the brand’s most popular models which has just has just been updated and relaunched. First launched back in 1999, the 7th generation Silver 100 remains a compact, two-way bass reflex design for stand-mount use, or bookshelf […]
