East End Hi-Fi are authorized dealers, and are selling a brand new pair of JM
Reynaud Offrande speakers with integral matching stands, and are available in stained beech (shown) or natural beech.
This is what Bob Neil of Positive Feedback had to say about the Offrandes:
"Their sonic priorities are the same: to communicate an immediate, tactile sense of performed music; to be candid, expressive, and enthusiastic rather than refined, diplomatic, tonally pure, or charming"
"But they are much more dynamic, larger in scale, wider in bandwidth, warmer, richer, and more detailed—especially in the bass."
"The Offrandes are warm, clear, detailed, dynamic, immediate, tactile, firm, and expressive. Clearly the warmth is the unexpected and crucial item here. Lots of speakers we know of can do clear, detailed, and immediate—but warm too?"
"Like live music is warm? Yes. That is the ace JMR plays with all of his speakers. He can do expressiveness and clarity but warmth as well. And because he can do natural, accurate warmth, he doesn't have to add extra liquidity to please us, to soften the impact of instruments."
"He can give us not more beauty but what feels strikingly like the exact beauty of the violin."
"Can they rock?" asks one of my web friends, reading my early notes? On goes Christian McBride's latest outing, Vertical Vision (Warner Bros.)—new band, more jazz-rock fusion than I am used to with McBride. Slashing, impactful, percussion banging off the walls, very impressive. Yes, friend, they can rock."
"There is nothing else the Offrandes can't do. On chamber music, rock, and jazz, they are to my ears and according to my taste, peerless."
"more immediacy, more dynamics, more bass, more of the underside of music—and if you're not afraid of getting a little closer to the music, as close as Jean Marie himself clearly wants to be—these may be the only speakers in the world for you."
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!!
