You do not regret the purchase. Good music without spending too much
9 June 2014
Summary: I'm not an audiophile - almost -, but I listen to music HI FI forever. After a period of neglect due to the advent of digital readers, I felt the need to return to old habits. I took a good amp, phono, cd player is. At this point it started an exhausting search of speakers: Indiana line, chario, B & W. I'd had enough. By chance I came across these Boston A26. Well, my search is over for the moment. I can even listen to music with my humble Hi-Fi.
Summary: 150-200$ price is really good for this speaker. sound quality is little bit better than my wharfedale 10.1, but make is not as good as 10.1. a decent speaker stand is necessary to produce a good soundstage. worth to buy for budget systems.
Summary: well balanced and dynamic, good spatial separation. however, compared with a sennheiser hd600 headphone, it is little bit lack of tone color for midrange. this can be solved by changing capacitors of the speaker crossover part. good speakers for its price.
Summary: this is my first american brand speaker, quite surprised with its sound when paired with a marantz pm 6004. not typical american sound as i always thought, but also still not euro sound style (compared with my old tannoy 615). good for chamber music, especially for piano solo.
Summary: As bookshelf speakers go, I am superimpressed. I don't have the deep pockets for the high, high end stuff, but I coupled these speakers with a Definity powered subwoofer, and I love how the stereo separation is so clear, and how vocals in particular reach out into the room. They create a nice 3 dimensional field of sound. Love 'em.
Summary: I bought these as B speakers and have a set of TEIL CS2.4 as the main pair. Running it on an Onkyo AV receiver. These are great I read a lot of reviews and lab tests before making my purchase. If you look at the frequency response of bench testing at audiophile websites for these speakers you will find that they are very acurate and not colored. (also have the A25 speakers as surround speakers see my review there they are very similar but not as much base).
Pros: Excellent Speakers for the price would recommend these even as Primary Speakers with the addition of a subwoofer if you want deeper base, but these are all you need for excellent listening.
