We listened to everything from Tord Gustavsen Trio to Radiohead to Frank Martin on the Sibelius loudspeakers. Besides the fact that these recordings sounded better and clearer than I had ever heard them before, the thing that really stuck out for me was how present and well placed all of the individual musicians sounded. Close your eyes and it’s as if you’ve stepped into a time machine and ended up in the middle of Nina Simone’s rehearsal room.
Of course nothing beats a live experience, but if your favorite band’s not in town tonight or you happen to be a big fan of said Nina or artists that have suffered the same fate, give these speakers a try.
