"The 3.5-way not only looked amazing, thanks to work by a respected Korean product designer, but also sounded great, even within the confines of a hotel conference room. I was particularly struck by the off-axis response.
Overall, one of the best-sounding rooms at the show.
I left the room impressed with what I heard musically and from Balciunas, bent on writing this article because I had the burning feeling that I needed to point out this speaker to the world so others will know about it, too.
In fact, it was my favorite product of Audio Video Show 2022.
Playing Thriller and cranking the volume a good bit these speakers remained calm and collected but still dynamically pleasing! They also look very, very nice! Imaging in the hot seat was excellent and "large-scale". One of my favourite sounding speakers of the day so far.
The first listening session we did showed that the Silent Pound Challenger has special sonic elements that are rare in modern speakers and will surely have a brilliant career in the market.
Although still in prototype status, the 60 kg loudspeaker with its patent-pending midrange chamber played very well, conspicuously free and open. This development needs to be monitored
