Acoustic Energy Reference 1 review


Want some small speakers that (almost) do it all? Try these, they're terrific all-rounders

Authoritative presentation ; impressive dynamics, punch and resolution ; refined treble

The dedicated £295 stands are a must

The Reference 1s are terrific all-rounders for the money. Want some small speakers that (almost) do it all? Try these

Acoustic Energy, Reference 1 - £1,500


Massive construction is just one of the key features that singles out Acoustic Energy's Reference 1, says Paul Messenger

Superb presentation and notably wide dynamic range

Bass can get thumpy at times; midband sensitivity is quite low

Fine mid-to-treble neutrality and coherence, plus wide dynamic range, but sensitivity is below par
