Neumi BS5 Bookshelf Speaker Review

Just wanted to share a link to my review here:
https://www.erinsaudiocorner.com/lou...ers/neumi_bs5/

I'll share a few of the highlights of the data in this thread, though. Ultimately, while these aren’t the best performing speakers I’ve tested or heard, I do believe these provide a good value to the budget-limited audiophile. And, with a few engineering alterations, could be made into an even better value. But please go to my site (will take me way too long to copy/paste all the images here) if you want to view the full content.

Nice review! It's pretty amazing what decent speakers you can get for very low prices these days.

Agreed. It's not the best speaker. It's not close to it. It's limited in SPL not just due to the low frequency but also due to the midrange. But if you needed a small set of speakers for a desktop or another case where you won't be hammering on them then I think for $90 they provide an overall decent sound and make them a worthwhile contender.

I don't have the Sony speakers. And I'm tapped out on testing funds to buy them to test.

That's a really thorough review on your site. I'll definitely have to spend some time reading in more detail as well as your other reviews. Nice job.

Great job!

I went to your site and was pleased to see a review of my next subwoofer, the Rhythmik F12G.

I was planning at some point to get two to replace my very nice DD15 sub that I plan to give to my niece.

Your review confirms my suspicions, and AVS user feedback on Rhythmik subs.

Thank you.

For $90 ... you get a decent crossover and internal padding ... that is interesting
