A best description would be 'smooth and revealing'. The
Bass response is very solid for a bookshelf speaker you
Probably won't need a subwoofer. They can be hooked up to
Just about any AVR and will give great results...no need for expensive amplification.
I compared in my home the '1' to B&W 685, Paradigm Mini-Monitor,
Paradigm Studio 40 and Paradigm Signature S1. The '1'ended up
Permanently as my 2-channel music listening set up.
I sold the Mini-Monitor and the 685's. The Studio 40's are in
My bedroom System. The Sig S1 are now relegated to back
Surround speakers in my living room set up. The Sig S1 probably
Gave the 1's the best run for the money, the beryllium tweeter
Is very nice, but the Sig S1 couldn't keep up on the low end. They
Are Also almost twice the price.(at the time)
8 weeks ago I sold my Sierra's for $475...to a very excited gentleman...he has since sent me a couple of emails telling me how
Much he enjoys the speakers and thanking me for giving him a great
I sold the 1's so I could get the Sierra 2 with the ribbon tweeter
(Always wanted to try the ribbon)
I just don't see a down side to the S1's. Hope this helps.
