Rated 5 out of 5áby hodgie Accoustics bookshelf speakers
These speakers represent great value for bookshelf speakers. II replaced a pair of aged Celestion Ditton 15's and I am very pleased with the quality of the sound. They may not be great with a really upmarket system but should be good with mid price good quality systems

Rated 5 out of 5áby Davewid Superb sounding speakers.
Audiophile quality sound from a small footprint speaker.
Replaced Dali 1 Zensor with these and now after a few days the difference is noticeable.
Vinyl seems more alive, and I'm hearing more from my CDs too.
Have bi-wired and am blown away.
Mine are wall mounted on brackets so I've used the foam bungs in the rear ports to stop any boomy sound.
Richer sounds great as usual.

Rated 4 out of 5áby CraigBrighton Beautiful speakers, shame about the damage
I have wanted these speakers ever since I heard a demo at Richer's over a year ago. The VIP ú50 off voucher gave me the impetus to go and finally get them.
So it was with some sadness that upon carefully unpacking them I discovered that one of the tweeter domes was pushed in. Being quite heavy and having walked them back from the store I didn't particularly want to take them back the following weekend having waited so long for them. So I carefully eased the dome back to it's original shape (almost) and decided to live with it. These speakers need a lot of running in, but after a couple of weeks I am already noticing the improvement.
I just hope the damaged tweeter doesn't affect the sound too much. But I am disappointed with the quality control on a ú350 "quality" speaker.
Perhaps next time I should check them in the store.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Sheppy Excellent speakers.
After I retired I decided to update my Marantz amp, Pioneer CD player and Tannoy speakers for the Marantz 6005 amp and CD player and the Concepts. At first the Concepts were ok but I wondered if I had been rash on my splurge; but by the second and following days they opened up and I could really understand what the raves were all about. Whereas my bigger speakers were great at higher volumes when the mid range, bass and treble equalised, the Concepts are fantastic at all levels. The bass may not be as big as the Tannoys but it is more than adequate and far superior in quality. I am able to pick out individual notes without them resonating into each other. Up the volume and it's wow! I am now listening to my old CDs afresh and even liking the songs I didn't care for earlier. I bought them without a studio hearing but am more than happy with my purchases. Besides, I did get a good deal on the package and excellent service from Richer Sounds.

These get better and better. I've owned a pair with matching stands for 6 months and they continue to amaze me. In fact, they seem to improve more over time and I can't think of any reason to upgrade right now.
The bass, though not ultra-deep, is beautifully defined and the soundstage is wide and totally immersive. Take care with positioning and you'll be rewarded with a punchy, balanced, well-defined and non-fatiguing sound. Highly recommended!

These speakers have great clarity, you can really hear each strand of the music. They have great rhythm and timing.
They are better than more expensive speakers.
Compact yes, that's a benefit. Lack of bass, no way its clear foot tapping bass as opposed to muddy bass which some bigger speakers deliver.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Tmck Just keep getting better
When I first set these up, I thought they were good, but couldn't quite understand what all the excitement was about.
However I took care to run them in for 48hrs at a moderate volume and they got better and better and now I can truly hear why the have been raved about.
The detail and separation across the spectrum is remarkable for a ú350 pair of speakers, from plenty of clear, un-muddled bass to bright but not harsh top end.
I don't have room for the stands, so I have had to place mine on window sills, Originally I used Foculpods, but to further improve the mechanical isolation, I swapped these for a set of Auralex Mopads which have made a big difference.
