Artisan R882   Speaker  Review 

 Georg Wolters   from Germany        

 
The resulting tower system  7 months in the making  is simply stunning.    other German  Friend    
a local  radio station DJ  plus  2 professional  SAE   Audio Engineering )  trained  sound   engineers, were amazed by the sound  we threw all kinds of music Hi end , low quality , Disc , Computer Music and the speakers revealed detail I have never hear before  . When I told  them how much
they cost me, they were amazed
The boys  thought of them as monitor speakers, what goes in goes out. The whole system has deep tight bass  and very clear all throughout even at very
high levels running through different Hi End  equipment including Integra 50.1 with Tara Labs Speaker cables  or a 30year old Sansui Amplifier the sound is excellent 


I am amazed  I have listen to 100K $ loudspeaker systems  at Hi end Audio Shops and Shows  and this speaker is every bit as good if not better
