"Nothing prepared us for the depth, precision and power of these speakers at low frequencies. They cope well with the demanding Gladiator soundtrack, something that can't be said of many similarly priced rivals, even larger ones."
"Midrange and higher frequencies keep up the good work, impressing with their resolution, naturalness and dynamics. Everything coheres into an expertly balanced sound that's neutral without being boring, dynamic while sounding unforced, and detailed without tearing the flow of the music apart."
"...we reckon if heard with a suitably talented system... they deliver astonishing results. They aren't even fussy about positioning: slightly away from the rear wall works fine, as does a touch of toe-in. It's just another reason why the A5's are great speakers: they're good enough to worry the best at this price level."
