The sensitivity levels shouldn’t present any problems for all but the most under-powered of AVRs, and the frequency response of these speakers is good, even if the lower-end numbers seem optimistic. Not that bass is an issue, because you have the subwoofer to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to cinematic mayhem.
The system sound is free of discolouration, and there’s a welcome sense of refinement to the performance. AE’s aluminium drivers showcase a neutrality that produces wonderful clarity and high-frequency detailing. There’s also a cohesion to the overall sonic signature, resulting in a thrilling and powerful delivery with a sense of scale.”
