Well worth the price


I listened to cheaper speakers but was not satisfied with their sound, though they were best buys in their price ranges. The Dali Opticon 1 was the cheapest speakers which had sound that I was satisfied with. My LG OLED55C9PLA TV has very good sound...

Had these for a few weeks now and they were bought in conjunction with the audiolab 6000a amplifier. As part of a recommended pairing by Rich at the Hull branch, listened to a few pairs of speakers and these and the monitor audio silver 50's were top....
