    Berlin R Mk-II Loudspeakers

    Not being an industry professional, I am not really qualified to write a review that would in any way be comparable to one that might be read in a hi-end audio publication.  With that caveat, what follows are my thoughts and impressions of the Viking Acoustics Berlin R Mk-II loudspeakers.

     

    First of all, these are among the most beautiful speakers I have ever seen.  They are a stand-mount loudspeaker which is on the large size for this form factor.  The high quality specimen woods used are exquisite and the workmanship is simply astounding.  The Berlin R Mk-IIs deserve to be on exhibit in the Guggenheim.

     

    Aesthetics aside, the sound emanating from these loudspeakers is the most detailed, impactful and pleasing I have ever heard — by far.  The bass is strong and can deliver what I would describe as “controlled slam”.  By this I mean the bass is strong and prevalent but only when called for by the music.  There is no gratuitous, pervasive low end that overwhelms and detracts from the overall sound.  More importantly, the strong bass provides a foundation for the mid-range notes that make them rich, full and beautiful.  This characteristic cannot be overstated… the mids are just unbelievably alive.
