For sale is the upgraded version of the highly regarded Jean Marie Reynaud Bliss (also called the Duet) speakers with new woofer suspension technology and other upgrades. Cherry finish.
Very good condition, no marks, scratches, dings, etc.
Stands not included.
Check out the great online reviews in Stereo Times and Positive Feedback for the standard Bliss/Duet model and the Amherst Audio review of the Bliss Silver:
"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 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 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 a 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 $5,000 I've heard, an enormous upgrade over the Bliss for $800. Twice as good? Quite possibly."
