Music is to be heard, savored and enjoyed. Speakers are the voice of your electronics and thus are a crucial purchase. Why? Two basic reasons: (1) They cost a good sum of money and (2) You will live with these speakers for a very long time. They must not only sound musical. They must connect with you and touch your senses and your soul. The latter is often referred to as the "goosebumps" effect. In seeking to add speakers to our product line, the ability to portray music accurately and to connect with the listener is foremost in our assessment. Given available choices and there are literally hundreds of brands and thousands of models to choose from, it really takes time and patience to find speakers that possess these special qualities.
