Acoustic Energy AE1 Classic review


AE has gone back to its roots with this Classic AE1

Beautifully balanced midband ; Impressively wide dynamic range

Bass is weak ; Top end rather obvious

Sharply priced classic replica looks good and does most things well, though more bass is needed

Acoustic Energy AE1 MKIII - £2,000


Acoustic Energy gives its traditional substantially built miniature a classy cosmetic makeover

Acoustic Energy AE1 Classic


Classics, certainly. But not quite the best around

Substantial build; an open and informative sound

The treble can be provoked; they could sound a touch more organic

Acoustic Energy AE1 MkIII SE


If you want a tiny, top-class monitor, these AE1 Mk III SEs are a must-audition

Amazing speed and detail resolution; class-leading clarity; excellent build

Small size means sonic authority falls short of larger rivals

Acoustic Energy AE1 Classic


Of all the so-called classic products in the hi-fi world this is one of the few that deserves that epithet. The original AE1 was introduced in 1988 and has gone through a number of changes since that time, resulting in the super sexy AE1 MkIII...

Hardcore styling, good power handling and bass for size

Not to everyone's aesthetic tastes and not as smooth as some
