incredible inexpensive speaker

this is by far one of the most unbelievable speakers i have ever listened to. i have been involved with this hobby since 1994 and have heard inexpensive speakers and expensive speakers

this little bookshelf speaker costs only $499 - this is so impressive for the money - it totally blows me away - that i can have this kind of sound for that kind of money

nothing impresses me more than an inexpensive component that sounds incredible.

it has the technology in its tweeter called bmr (balanced mode radiator) - it was used in the nxt panels - but never took off

it is now practical - there is no mid bass - only a woofer - because the tweeter handles all the midbass - the result is wonderful

it takes a lot for me to be impressed - cause i think a lot of what i hear is so over-rated - these speakers are very enchanting for the money - they blow away those cheap pioneer speakers albeit at almost 4 times the price - i have had them about 17 days - and approx 4 hours a day of playing - so about 68 hours of running in

for this king of money - im so impressed - i dont want to cry wolf - but you got to here these
you ought tell us what this incredible speaker is....

I LOVE those speakers! I'm gonna go buy a pair today.
Wait a minute, what were we talking about again??
I just bought a pair. They blow my Legasteen Aeris MkIV A's away.
Yes, please.
Could they be the cambridge audio aero 2?

It appears that medical marijuana card is working out extremely well for you.
your right the medical pot is working!

In my haste - i forgot to mention the speaker

cambridge aero 2 - cambridge - who knew?
Glad you like them! Enjoy!
So good you forgot to mention what speaker it was. LOL.
You should give them a listen with the whatchamacallit mono amps! Or even better the thingamajig tube preamp!
Don't forget those mono's & preamp will sound even better on
those Dohicky's :o)
Monoprice headphones are killer bang for the buck. I thought you wanted other exemplars.
and i hope these speakers (cambridge aero 2) dont go unnoticed

im telling you these are really good - i know we are all jaded when someone says that such and such is incredible

if you would just see what this speaker is capable of

remember im talking about a $499 pair of speakers
the bmr is pretty neat, Naim uses them as well
i havent heard the naim speakers - but this implementation is really good - you dont hear that compression that you hear with inexpensive speakers

these sound very seamless

im using it with a 100 watt solid state amp - i have not tried a tube amp that i have that is only 35 watts a channel

these speakers are not very sensitive - about 85db im estimating - i hope this doesnt deter people
Cambridge lists the sensitivity at 90db
but im telling you its not 90db - i havent measured it - but i know i have to turn the volume up more than im used to

i would bet any anount that these are 85db or 86 at the most

thats missing the whole point of this speaker

Yes, for very good reason.
What good reason? I like your post on these speakers and love it when folks get excited about good value gear! No reason to fear as in the end just check them out for yourself.
I can see where one would get excited with the sound of this speaker. That BMR is passive and takes the place of an actual tweeter making it something like a augmented widebander and we all know how seamless and coherent a properly done widebander can sound.

All the best,
A MUD HEN,,,STOP YER CLUCKING,he did say what they are!!! You need to read ALL the responses,,,
That BMR is passive
Just out of curiosity, I had to check this out, and the BMR does has a voice coil, so therefore it is not passive. See the white paper,
