Genelec 6020A Speaker System

I'm always willing to stand up for the little guy. Small speakers are my favorite kind, whether they're compact sub/sat sets or slightly chunkier bookshelf speakers. The Genelec 6020A leans more toward the sub/sat side in terms of size, but it has a...

The Newton T100 is an engineering success, but (for very understandable reasons) a marketing failure. The idea behind them - other than the marketing dept's desire to fill a void in the lineup - is simple: With the advent of home theater more and more...

THIEL SmartSub SS1

Even if Thiel hadn't given their new subwoofer line the slick name of SmartSub, I'd still say most subwoofers are stupid. Make that stoopid. Granted, I've had some good ones in the last few years, and that's no accident, since no reviewer would...
