Hart Audio EVO1 Loudspeaker

Chris Ward has posted a review of the Hart Audio EVO1 loudspeakers (£7495/pair) at Hi-Fi Choice. His conclusions: “The combined effect of high sensitivity, low cabinet colouration, a tuned set of sympathetic drivers and near bottomless active amplifier grunt adds up to a more subtle whole than one might expect.

Harbeth Super HL5 Plus Loudspeaker

Rene van Es has posted a review of the Harbeth Super HL5 Plus loudspeakers (£3279/pair) at The Ear.

Focal Chorus 706 Loudspeaker

Greg Borrowman has posted a review of the Focal Chorus 706 loudspeakers ($899/pair) at AVHub. His conclusions: “Focal’s new Chorus 706s are amazingly good speakers and, considering they’re made entirely in France, to state-of-the-art standards, I am a bit stunned by how competitively- priced they are.
