Released January, 2003
The Pros:Sound has good reach, fills a space effectively. Combines minimalist design with smooth arches for sleek look. Compact build has a small footprint, can fit them into smaller spaces.
The Cons:Spring cable clips look cheap, would ideally use pillar connections. Wall mounting is tricky, brackets are awkward to attach to the speaker.
