So, the next three nights I got them the rest of the way dialed in, and they started to settle into the room. What an amazing difference even after only about 7 or 8 hours. By hours 10 through 15, they are really showing their abilities. I have never heard more amazing vocal reproductions. July London, Nat King Cole, Patricia Barber, Holly Cole, Nick Drake, Diana Washington, Billie Holiday, I can go on and on…it’s kind of spooky…
I’m very pleased with the low end, quick accurate and quite full for a relativity small speaker. I must say, they are larger then I had imagined. Oh, the wood work, amazing, I am so pleased with look of the wood, the perfect horns, it’s really quite amazing. More to come...
Berlin R loudspeaker named as one of top 7 finest loudspeaker systems in the world along with Living Voice's Vox Olympian, and Magico's S7 in 2015 by Audio Lifestyle Magazine.
