Rave UK reviewhttps://www.stereonet.com/uk/reviews/ophidian-p1-evolution-loudspeaker-review 

Excerpts:

Ophidian's P1 Evolution is all about being clean and transparent – and it does the job very well. Indeed the aluminum coned mid/bass driver and Solonex-coated tweeter make quite the team where detail and precision are concerned.

The P1 Evolution was unremitting – forensic, even – in its desire to capture the enthralling detail. Just Cruzin' from Stanley Clarke has a laid-back groove, and the P1 Evo showed its knack for tight timekeeping. The metronomic high-hat clicks were hyper-realistic, and it didn't take any ear-strain at all to pick out the room reverb that follows every snare hit.

Designer Gareth James acknowledges that the Ophidian P1 Evolution is not “soft”. Yet, although it refuses to mollycoddle your music, it delivers incredible insight. The modestly-sized mid-bass driver partners very well with the extremely capable tweeter to dig deep into whatever music you play. It also highlights the regularly overlooked 'micro-detail' that is so often missed out. This means you could actually use this speaker in a professional studio as monitors.

That's not to say that they don't necessarily work well in domestic situations. I enjoyed the fact that records with exceptional production values are rightfully rewarded and put on a spot lit dais. I understand that the P1 Evolution may be too stringent for some listeners, but it's great to have diversity in the marketplace. In conclusion, then, there's a strong market for the kind of buttoned-up focus and sober clarity that these speakers provide – and as such, they deserve every success.
