Writing for CNET, Steve Guttenberg auditions the Chane A1rx-c.
Stereo imaging was so wide and spacious that when I listened at night with the room lights off, the speakers’ locations disappeared. The stereo image’s depth, focus and precision let me hear each instrument and vocal in bold relief. MA Recordings’ CDs have extraordinary dynamic range, and the A1rx-c let me hear and feel it! Norah Jones “Come Away With Me” SACD sounded immediate and closer than what I was getting from audiophile CDs. I’m doing my best here to nail down the A1rx-c ‘s sound, but that’s next to impossible, the speaker sounds different with every album. That’s always a good sign.
It’s always good to connect to the music even more than the sound.
