Nice Things From Sweden
Indeed, there were nice things from Sweden in the Sjofn HiFi room. I didn't get a taste of the snittar (Swedish finger sandwiches), but I was very impressed by the powerful bass and deep, wide soundstage created by the diminutive Guru loudspeakers. As Wes mentioned, the Gurus were designed with the room in mind, and are meant to be placed near room boundaries.
Though, Sjofn's online store is temporarily closed, they do have an interesting sales network set up in a major markets across the country. Potential buyers will be able to listen to the Guru speakers in special studios and apartments, by appointment.
Here's a picture of the speaker. Forgive Fred Manteghian's humor. The song wasn't that bad. Fred's just hungry.
