Gingko Audio ClaraVu 7 MkII Loudspeakers

December 31, 2010

Jeff Van Dyne has posted a review of the Gingko Audio ClaraVu 7 MkII loudspeakers ($2995/pair) at Soundstage! Hi-Fi. Measurements taken in the anechoic chamber at Canada’s National Research Council are also posted. His conclusions:

’ve been completely blown away by Gingko Audio’s ClaraVu 7 MkII. My listening room is a difficult space for many conventional speakers, but the Gingkos excelled in this tough environment. While tolerant of less-than-ideal placement, they really sang when I took the trouble to get their positions just right. This was when the ClaraVu 7 MkII became not merely a very good loudspeaker, but one of the most interesting I’ve heard in a long time. It combines many of the best qualities of some of my favorite speakers, while avoiding many, potentially troubling issues of room interaction. Top that with the fact that it’s consummately tube-friendly, and I can’t recommend this one highly enough.
