To tempt the Gods I started with Liszt’s Prelude & Fugue on the theme BACH, performed by Felix Hell. The gigantic and palpable power of the sound that the small SB1s produced struck me. (…) What the SB1s are doing here is masterful. That enormous amount of acoustic energy is produced in great quality. No thickening when the frequencies drop and no fuzziness, smearing and loss of tonality. There is absolutely no whipping undefined fog of sound. On lesser systems, such a church organ often turns into a vague something, where all kinds of tones intertwine and form a mess.
Above all, the SB1s fit into a real world scenario. In today’s time, hi-fi should be as compact as possible and not be a disturbing factor in the living environment. For that setting, there is no solution that is more useful and elegant than the SB1.
