"These are superb standmounters"

5 out of 5 stars

In May, we introduced our Special Forty speakers to the world - celebrating our 40th anniversary. Since then the reviews have started to come in and we've been overwhelmed by the positive reception. This time around, it's What Hi-Fi?'s turn to give them a spin. And as we expected, they loved them. You can find selected quotes below and a link to the original review.

Special Forty in grey birch
  • How do the Fortys sound?  We keep coming back to three words in our notes: confident, muscular and subtle.
  • They’re also magnificently detailed, digging out the low-level acoustic clues that define a recording venue with ease. This resolution is apparent whatever genre of music we play. 
  • The Special Fortys are easy speakers to underestimate. They’re not an overtly cutting-edge design using the latest in high-tech materials, nor are they styled to stand out in a crowd. But once we start listening none of that matters. We’re far too busy having fun.

 Jump over to What Hi-Fi?'s full Special Forty review to get the full scope on the anniversary speakers. We think it's worth your while.
