Good comprehensive review, as usual - cheers Ed.
Not heard any of their smaller speakers, but a mate has a pair of their Sonetto V111 floorstanders and they have an open, neutral sound and a wonderfully expansive sound stage.
That said, at the wrong side of £5.5k they bloody well should do!
Ooh, the big fellas. I bet they sounded really nice
Possibly the best speakers I've ever heard mate.
If I could find a way of sneaking a pair past the wife I'd buy 'em in a heartbeat, but worry I'd spend the early part of the new year in Manchester Royal having my genitals surgically re-attached.
Yeah I get ya
Probably need a fairly big space for those as well. Out of curiosity, what finish are they and what was it like ?
Have you heard the Sonetto III? They are top of my consideration list in terms of price. I like them in walnut or gloss black. Available with 0% finance from a couple of suppliers. I have not heard them in person but through Youtube (and Sonus Faber headphones) they sound good in the ‘room’ on a couple of videos I have watched.
Yes I was. Just wondering if you had a chance to hear them. I find that of all the items in the HiFi chain, speakers really should be heard in the room they are going to be used in. Therefore dealer demos of speakers don’t give one the full picture. The problem is, trying to arrange a home demo of speakers, especially when I live a good 70 miles from the nearest stockist, is always a challenge. That’s why reviews, opinions and YouTube videos are so useful.If that's asking me, no I haven't, not yet.
If the RX1 is anythting like the older RS1, then I think probably not. This was a puny sounding pretty little wooden finished box... very disappointing.I think the Rega RX1 should be quite more capable and interesting for about the same price. And, at 89dB/1w, it‘s much easier to drive, too.
