Finally found my speakers
Reviewed in the United States on January 3, 2019
This is a phenomenal set of speakers. Everything they say in their advertising is true. I would have been appalled if you had told me I would spend $3,000 on a pair of bookshelf speakers. However, over the last 3-4 years, I have bought 10 pairs of $300 speakers. Some just for fun, others out of curiosity, and some out of desperation for an elusive satisfaction.
These speakers have ended my search. I'm using these in a 9x10 room, music only, no subwoofer, stereo system. These reconnect you with the emotion in the music. As the company says, their goal was to add nothing to what the artist intended. It's hard to describe the speakers in audio terms. To me, they are not warm, or bright, or even neutral. They just play the music. You pick up the passion in the music. It saddened me to read a professional review which said these were functional, not special. It makes me wonder if the reviewer actually listened to the speakers, or just looked at them. In my opinion, their specialness comes from being functional. The music is the show, not the speakers. I will say that when I need a new cd player or integrated amp, I will buy the offerings from Cambridge. It won't bother me at all to have all components from one company. Well done, Cambridge Audio.
