East End Hi-Fi are authorized dealers, and are selling a brand new pair of JM
Reynaud Bliss Silver speakers in natural cherry.
As good as the Blisses are, the still relatively new Bliss Silvers,
introducing the new woofer suspension technology and other upgrades, are
dramatically better. Not a replacement for the Bliss, which 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.
The Stereo Times said:
"Music was delivered in modest, compact and perfectly proportioned
fashion by the Bliss. This was particularly impressive when listening to
complex orchestration where it is particularly difficult to convey, with
clarity, each musical line and strand within the dense undergrowth of musical
"All musical elements were weaved into a coherent, naturally proportioned
musical statement; all a result of the Bliss’ meticulous attention to inner
detail, colors, textures and its special way with pruning even the slightest
twig of musical color or dynamic into a sonic Whole. This was a glorious feat
for such a diminutive loudspeaker. I have auditioned quite a few excellent
stand-mounted loudspeakers from the likes of Harbeth, Totem, Acoustic Zen and
Focus Audio, and to my recollection, none of them surpassed the continuous life
stream of vitality, coherency and natural proportionality to images that the
"At its price point, the Bliss is in the top of its class as a
stand-mounted, two way design. It can easily saturate a small to medium sized
room with its lively, vital sound"
Whether it's Classical, Jazz, or other genres, the JM Reynaud speakers outperform other monitor speakers. For interested parties in the Long Island area, please visit East End Hi-Fi for a demo. We will help you transform your CD/LP collection back into music again!!
