OUTSTANDING - Amongst the Best

Comments of Note:
“In short, they are absolutely gorgeous. Take a look at our pictures and try to tell me I’m wrong.”
“Their fit and finish easily justifies the price…”
“Happily, the Opera Primas do not just look good, they have a beguiling sound as well.”
“the Operas came across as smooth and assured.”
Bruce Springsteen – ‘Thunder Road’ (CD)
“there was an air and atmosphere to the gentle piano introduction. Immediately I heard the Operas were allowing the music to breathe without thrusting it in my face. Impressively here, the leading edges of the guitar lines never became lost in the mix.”
“Lower down the frequency spectrum the Operas also demonstrated an ability to sound natural and unforced.”
“…if tonality and accuracy are what you are after you will not be disappointed.”
Kansas City Symphony – Young Person’s Guide To The Orchestra
“the dynamics were outstanding. Pushing the volume up here on the final fugue, the woodwind retained all its detail and delicacy without collapsing in on itself. That’s quite an achievement and shows just how well-engineered the Primas are.”
“In the final analysis, these Opera Prima 2015s are a class act.”
“Beautifully presented and a joy to listen to, the Opera Primas are everything you’d want in a small standmount. They have power, poise and precision, allied to a thoroughly involving sound. Add in the luxury look and you have a loudspeaker which will give you a real pride of ownership.”
“Classic design allied to a totally involving sound makes these little loudspeakers a sure-fire winner.”
“FOR – tonally smooth – good bass extension – superb design”
