Green mountain audio Rio monitor speakers in 9/10 condition. Having owned many high end monitors I can confirm that these are the absolute transparency champs. The human voice is eerily reproduced with jaw dropping accuracy. You simply will not find a monitor that allows you to hear more of what is on your recording. If neutrality and accuracy is what you want, these are the holy grail.
In my opinion, they need a sub to round out the bottom end. They are very heavy. They are the heaviest stand mount speakers I've ever owned. You will need quality stands. The marble-like cabinet material is completely inert. Zero resonance.
What a Reviewer says...
"Five Stars!" "Best Buy!" HiFi Choice Magazine
"...this discreet little standmount turned out to be one of the most exciting speakers to come my way in years... musically very communicative with vivid dynamic expression... there's absolutely no doubting the exceptional overall sound of the little Rio's... the midband expression and coherence truly approaches the state-of-the-art... [This] exceptional performer is way ahead of its peers in delivering a vivid and engrossing musical experience, so value for money is, therefore, unquestionably very high...
"Best of all is its exceptional speed and minimal time-smear, which brings a brilliant immediacy and tight, solid focus to the reproduction of instruments and voices, creating vivid dynamic expression and an unusual degree of realism. It's all very realistic, as is that most difficult of tests – single speaker mono.
"Loudspeakers as phase-accurate as these are very rare, but some listeners (not all!) will find them quite irresistible... Vivid excitement... Once set up, the impressive strengths of these compact speakers quickly becomes obvious."
