      Good value speaker - without going to extremes

      I picked up a pair of these floor standing speakers a while ago from Richer Sounds - always a good bet for top value hi-fi kit - and they're now "run in". I was under pressure from my wife to find something that wasn't a plain black box and the fairly slim cherry casing was deemed suitable. The speaker casings are tall and slim but surprisingly deep - pictures don't do the depth justice. There are two woofers and one tweeter. Although the woofers aren't very large, the case obviously does a good job in producing sufficient bass; on the plus side, the relatively small size allows for good sound reproduction. The speakers can be bi-wired - if your amplifier allows - which improves the audio performance by splitting the signal for low and higher range, although wiring them up is a performance and the speaker cable doesn't come cheap, starting at £3 a metre. When setting up, the manual recommends wiring out of phase and run for 36 hours facing each other - this was a step too far for me but it does seem to have taken a while for the drivers to loosen up, so someone with more time and patience may find this technique useful. The sound is great - I previously had a pair of huge black Jamo speakers on wheels which were great for pumping out bass at parties but which murdered the sound quality; these are still capable of a respectable amount of bass (no sub required in my opinion) but I hear sounds I never did previously. One negative, which will be common to most floor standers - the speakers stand on points which dig into the carpet - fine until someone who doesn't know tries to move them and drags them across the carpet.
