Sure, we review a lot of big-bucks equipment in Stereophile
, but readers constantly remind us to try the cheaper stuff as well. John Atkinson does exactly that in his review of the Acoustic Energy Aegis One loudspeaker
. As JA puts it, "Acoustic Energy has introduced the Aegis One; its price is one-tenth that of the AE1 in its current, Signature guise. Does the Aegis One live up to what its heritage promises? I asked the company's US distributor, Audiophile Systems, to send me a pair so I could find out."
Jonathan Scull requests that readers shut their systems down, remove their components and start drumming on the now empty equipment racks. Tryouts for a new audiophile percussion ensemble? Nope. In Fine Tunes #24 Scull wants to tighten up that rack resonance with a few sound tips.
