Summary: Sometimes an audiophile or a reviewer will fall
in love with a particular speaker because of one aspect of its performance. There are many
ways in which the Argon2 Anniversary is an excellent speaker -- its speed, tonal
neutrality, and voluminous soundstaging -- but it is the collection of all of these traits
at a mid-level price that makes it an exceptional speaker.
Summary: Besides the nOrh SM 6.9, the most logical
comparison I could find for this speaker is to one that’s a little more expensive --
Revel’s $2000-per-pair Performa M20 -- and this speaks highly for what the argon2
achieves. I chose this speaker for comparison because in ways, the argon2 is a lot like
the Revel. They both sound exceedingly neutral, and prospective purchasers who are
considering one will want to consider the other.
