I am selling a beautiful pair of JM Reynaud Bliss Silvers in excellent condition. These speakers sound as good as they look and I am only selling because I am buying the newest model Bliss Jubilees. I held on to these monitors over the ProAc Response D2's, Joseph Audio Prisms and Totem The One monitors because I really enjoy the way the Silver present all types of music. They have PRAT, but also do the audiophile things very well. The Bliss Silvers are live sounding like Klipsch speakers, but much more refined and not at all fatiguing while being very involving.. They are a joy to listen to and by far my favorite French speaker brand and one of the best brands period. Bob Neil of Amherst Audio wrote “As good as the Blisses are, the Bliss Silvers, introducing the new woofer suspension technology and other upgrades, are dramatically better. Not a replacement for the Bliss, which for now remains happily in the line, but a refined and stunningly upgraded Bliss. Everything I said about the Bliss applies but the upgrades place the Silvers among the clearest sounding speakers I’ve ever heard in anywhere near their price range. Overall definition is outstanding. The midrange is as clear as the Harbeth Radial but both sweeter and robust, at the same time. An overall natural warmth with a surprising sense of ease for a stand mounted speaker. Not a hint of brightness or assertiveness. Listening to a cello and piano duo: the two instruments are each perfectly and separately realized. Treble range is clear and smooth, midrange present, savory, and clear. Bass is solid with good body, tight, and extremely well defined. Clearly it’s stand-mount bass, but the absence of low end authority is not conspicuous because what is there is so well defined. Most interesting – and this is a feature I am hearing in all of the Reynauds which use the new technology – there is a dramatic increase in sense of space and imaging.They are the most musically accurate speakers under $5000 I’ve heard, an enormous upgrade over the Bliss for $800. Twice as good? Quite possibly.” The Bliss Silvers have excellent reviews in Stereo Times and Positive feedback as well as very positive user comments on the forums such as Audiogon, Audio Shark, Canuck Audio Mart and others. I am selling these speakers for less than 1/2 of list price and I will give an additional discount for a local pickup. Please add 3% for PayPal. Thank You for reading my ad.
