"Acoustic Energy's AE1 was apparently originally intended for use as a nearfield monitor in recording studios. It is a great shame, however, that it has not been widely adopted for that use, as it would tell recording engineers rather more about the success or failure of their efforts than the ubiquitous Yamaha NS10 (footnote 2).

I have to say that the AE1 is one of the finest, most transparent cone speakers I have heard. Its ability to float a stable, deep, well-defined soundstage, only rivaled in the world of box loudspeakers by the Celestions SL600 and SL700, is awesome, which, coupled with its ability to play without strain, immerses the listener in the music. Less colored in the midband than the similarly priced, similarly balanced Monitor Audio R952/MD, it only loses out to that speaker in the extension and the ultimate quality of its low frequencies. If you have a small room, or value midrange transparency and the ability to make the ends of your listening room disappear above bass extension (footnote 3), then the Acoustic Energy AE1 should be on your short list of speakers to audition. As far as I'm concerned, it redefines the art of miniature speaker design." - Stereophile
