    Hmmm...before a TAS review.

    Did I miss it or did Alan list the equipment used in the review? Having heard the S7, I really think the review understates just how good the new S7 really is.

      I didn't see the associated equipment list either, Myles. I wonder if he's still using the CH Precision gear he waxed enthusiastic about not so long ago.

      While it's clear Alan likes the S7s ("Put simply, one of the best loudspeakers ever,..."), he could have expanded more on the immersive high frequencies, the palpable, focused mid range, or the very expressive bass. Your preview of the S7 was more in depth IMO. Definitely one of the best speakers I've heard.



      Kronos Sparta -> Trinity Phono -> Trinity Pre -> CH Precision A1 -> Magico S7s

        If I had to identify ONE quality that defines the sound of the S7, it would be the speaker's quietness.
