Epos M12.2

 

Simple design produces complex, one-size-fits-all musicality

Dynamic and rhythmical ; precise ; match for al types of music

Midrange is a little lean

Expert review by:

Epos M12.2

 

The Epos M12.2s evolved from the entry-level M12 and moved into the midrange courtesy of some recent refinements including a new aluminum drive chassis and real wood veneer front baffle. The upshot is extraordinary performance that surpasses the price.

Musical timing; composed, honest sound

Unbalanced high frequencies

Epos Acoustics M12.2

 

I bought these speakers without ever hearing them..We've all done it, so don't act like you haven't. I can't stand bright sounding speakers, or anything else for that matter. In spite of what any or all of the other reviews have said, I feel certain...

Epos are not brite or brittle or harsh sounding. They are the truth. Its the upstream electronics thats harsh. No the Epos are not perfect. but their shortcoming is error of omission. what you hear is what you got. sorry for my frankness.

This review is my comment (agree and disagree) on some of the other reviews posted on the internet regarding the Epos M12.2. My system setup is Densen DM10, Cambridge Audio 640C V2, Van Den Hull 102 Mk III interconnect and MIT Terminator 4 speaker...

Bass does not go low, sibilence

These speakers are one of the best value at the price. They have a beautiful mdrange and great rythme. Sometimes the aluminium tweeter can sound harsh and metallic. But as whole they are very competent and musical speakers.

Beautiful midrange ; Fast and responsive ; Neutral

treble can sound harsh ; midrange sound a bit thin

SUPERB SMALL SPEAKERS

 

Lovely speakers that punch well above their weight (price bracket). I've been using them in a small room with CD/amp costing over 4000 and they hold their own very well. However, they also sound good with cheap eqiupment. They sound better with the...

Amazing delicacy and resolution, good build.

Don't like being pushed hard, not that good in a large room (true of most small speakers)

HIGH END SOUNDS, FOR A LOW LOW PRICE

 

ignore the "aren't they a bit lean"? tosh spouted about epos in general, don't deny yourself a listen. i've got the 5 speaker package with m5's at the back ( they are all mag shielded ) and with my rel t1 they sound wonderful with movies too

for around 300 used or ex demo these epos speakers do that very rare and peculiar thing, you will go thru all of your music collection to see what it really sounds like, incredible midrange, tight bass, spot on timing and musical like nothing else for...

they benefit from solid stands and a hefty thrash to run in fully. decent speaker cables are as with all speakers a must. some newer speakers tick more boxes regards looks.

Product Specifications

The Epos M series loudspeakers evolved from the time honoured ES range of the eighties and nineties and until recently the M12 was the entry level speaker for the range. This speaker was first designed in 1999 and December 2003 saw the introduction of its successor the M12.2 Still a two way bass reflex design, the M12.2 features a 150mm woofer complete with phase plug. Replacing the plastic chassis used in the original M12 is the all new Epos die cast chassis. The tweeter used in the M12.2 is a 25mm aluminium dome with ferrofluid cooling and neodymium magnet system. As you would expect with a speaker of this quality, there is provision for bi-wiring via the two sets of 5 way binding posts. The real wood veneer cabinet, available in a choice of light cherry, dark cherry or black, is beautifully finished and the metal grille can be easily removed if desired. Listening to the new M12.2 is a delight. If used in a home cinema application, the addition of M5 speakers for rear channel use together with the M8 centre channel guarantees a home theatre speaker system of the highest calibre. When placed on the optional ST12 open frame stands designed for this particular model, it is said they perform at their best.
