Hmm; well...first of all. I need to take back, the word hideous
...when it comes to describing the new Contours. If we're grading on a curve; if I call those
hideous, I don't even have anywhere to go...for some of the crazy ***** I just saw!
Hard to identify, some
of those models; as I don't think, you'd see them...at an American show. But none of the ones, I couldn't identify...really ranked among my favorites anyway.
I know we're suppose to pick 3; but I already saw someone list 5...and really, only 2 stood out as really
appealing, to my
taste. However...I have some honorable mentions.
Dali, Raidho, Sonus Faber...in no particular order; always make nice-looking speakers, and I saw some beauts on display. Audio Vector, is a brand I am not familiar with; look a lot like ELAC...but I'll give them a mention, and some love.
2nd place, goes to Wilson Benesch. I've always liked the look of their speakers; clean and masculine. That A.C.T. One Evolution P1, is a stunner.
But for me...all things weighed; you gotta give props, to Focal...for their design. The Sopra is hot, hot, hot
P.S. - Props to Dyn...for having the best-looking woman, photographed in their room
...or would that be Dali?
