MR Series 5.1 System Review

"The polished look of the black oak vinyl suits a variety of décor and is easy to clean."

"The MR1 bookshelf speaker is attractive in appearance and size. It has a solid feel because of its rigid cabinet bracing and it looks just as good, with the grills on or off, as its larger siblings."

"In Tori Amos’ ‘Past the Mission’ on the “Under the Pink” album, her vocal clarity was convincingly good – in fact much better than I would expect from a speaker at this price point."

"The MR4 speakers had no difficulties turning my room into a concert hall and delivered the appropriate reverberation and liveliness of the great musicians on stage."

"The MRW10 subwoofer blended very well with the mains and did not disappoint. Where the MR4 and MR1 rolled off, the MRW-10 took over seamlessly. The subwoofer, seemingly endless in output in moderate sized rooms, seemed to transform the MR4 into an entirely different speaker."

"I can honestly say that this system would beat most speakers that you’d find in a big box store, even those sold at significantly higher price points. These speakers are particularly well suited for movie and surround music discs, and come with a subwoofer that’s tight without much overhang or distortion."

"When good appearances and sound come together as one in an affordable package - everyone wins!"
