Boston Acoustics A 25 loudspeaker System

Sidebar 2: System

I did all of my listening using my Rega P3-24 turntable, Exposure 2010S CD player, NAD C 316BEE integrated amplifier and PP 3 USB phono preamplifier, AudioQuest Rocket 33 speaker cables, and Sidewinder interconnects. The speakers were secured with small globs of Blu-Tack to 24" Target stands, while the components rested within my PolyCrystal equipment rack. Source components and amplifiers were plugged into a Furutech e-TP60 power conditioner and then into a Furutech GTX wall receptacle. Comparison speakers included the Pioneer SP-BS41-LR ($150/pair), which Bob Reina reviewed in our September 2011 issue and the the PSB Alpha B1 ($299/pair).—Stephen Mejias

How would you compare these speakers to the Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 speakers? Which do you prefer?

I can't answer your question properly because I didn't have the speakers on hand to compare side-by-side, but the Wharfedales struck me as having a more nuanced sound with lots of delicacy, grace, and inner detail, while the Boston Acoustics were more about creating a wide, stable soundstage, while providing impact, clarity, and presence. I'm not sure which speaker I miss more, but I do miss them both.

It sounds like you really enjoy these speakers. It is always good to get a first hand account of how speakers work and whether or not they are worth the price, things get too confusing otherwise.



    Speakers for en ligne casino or listening room are a dime a dozen so when we see someone describe in detail the quality of a certain set we will remember it.
