Do you want to buy a complete hi-fi system with a CD player and have around £1000 to spend? Well, look no further! I have rounded up some very good quality products that form a great system and are available at a great price right now.
Mission are a very well known British hi-fi company that was founded in 1977. Their products have long been excellent examples of good quality products at a competitive price. At the Sound & Vision Show, Mission were demonstrating their new LX range of speakers. On show was the LX-2 bookshelf speaker, so Dynamic Headroom stopped by and listened in.
Acoustic Energy were established in 1987 and are a well know British hi-fi company specialising in loudspeakers. Based in the Cotswolds, Acoustic Energy began life focussing on the professional audio market. They have a wide range of loudspeaker products starting from the Reference down to the Aego compacts. At the Sound & Vision Show in Bristol, Acoustic Energy showed their latest product: the AE1 Active.
Canton are a German hi-fi company who were established in 1973. Over the years they have produced a wide range of speakers from large floor standers to soundbars. The Canton representative was a very cheery chap who had speakers hooked up to a Denon amplifier and CD player. Dynamic Headroom took a seat near the front and sat down for a listen...
Room 306 at the Sound & Vision Show in Bristol featured a host of different brands coming together to create a top notch system. Dynamic Headroom paid a visit and discovered something a little bit different.
Here at Dynamic Headroom we are all about discovering cool new hi-fi brands and products. Ophidian Audio is a name that many of the visitors to the Sound & Vision Show had not heard of before, myself included. Ophidian will be a well known brand judging by their performance in Bristol.
Dynamic Headroom visited the Quad room at the Sound & Vision Show 2017 to see what was on offer.
Dynaudio were present at Sound & Vision in Bristol with a dimly lit room showcasing their latest speakers designs. A large black & white mural of David Bowie adorned the front wall, flanked either side by by a pair of Dynaudio Contour 60. I find it interesting to see what other manufacturers a hi-fi brand uses to demo its own products. In this case, Dynaudio were using Naim electronics, a very good match indeed.
Here I give my verdict on a pair of floor standing speakers from IPL Acoustics - the S2TLK.
In this review I look at the Concept 20 stand mount loudspeaker from Q Acoustics.
