Gramophone GX100 Review

“The pair of speakers I received for review, very smartly finished in Piano Black Gloss, had been used for a while before dispatch, so needed minimal running-in to loosen them up and have them performing as they should.”

“And the GX100s’ take on ‘as they should’ is undeniably impressive: this is a fast, dynamic, exciting loudspeaker design, capable of remarkable slam and drive in the bass, along with seamless integration through the midband and on up into one of the sweetest, yet most explicit, top-ends around.”

“Particularly striking is the openness of the treble, used to delicious effect…”

“Especially impressive is the sense of air and space in the sound, making the most of ‘location’ recordings, and the way the GX100s deliver a stereo image with both depth and precise location of instruments. With minimal toe-in the sound snaps into focus, and after that the speakers do a fine job of placing music in an entirely realistic fashion.”

“The may be larger than the common idea of compact speakers, but the additional weight and power they bring to music, allied to that smoothly explicit midband and sweet, beautifully extended treble, is more than sufficient payback for their extra size.”

“...I unboxed the review pair and discovered two of the most exquisite-looking, best-finished cabinets I’ve seen on any speaker near this price, or even double it.”

“The finish was flawless; with the wood’s warm, reddish glow and the cabinet’s soft, rounded edges, the GX100s had the appearance of fine furniture.”

“I consistently heard a very crisp sound with detailed, incisive highs that portrayed instruments and voices with precision and distinction.”

“As impressed as I was by the GX100’s ribbon tweeter, I was equally impressed by its midrange-woofer, which, in conjunction with its solidly constructed cabinet, helped the speaker deliver deep, powerful bass. When I closed my eyes, I could have sworn I was hearing a pair of floorstanders.”

“I found its sound highly engaging, and capable of holding my interest. I was able to sustain my utter enthusiasm for its sound for long periods without
ever getting fatigued.”

“...the buyer of a pair of Gold GX100s will be rewarded with something he or she can own and cherish for many years. Highly recommended.”

Gramophone GX100 review

Classical music industry leading publication - Gramophone reviews the Gold GX100, with results we're equally impressed with...

Here's just a snippet "And the GX100s' take on 'as they should' is undeniably impressive: this is a fast, dynamic, exciting loudspeaker design, capable of remarkable slam and drive in the bass, along with seamless integration through the midband and on up into one of the sweetest, yet most explicit, top-ends around. The music is never any less than entirely controlled, and yet has that wide-open, rich, detailed presentation that just begs the listener to listen more closely to what's being played, revelling in the sheer amount of character and detail on offer."

GX100 Review by SoundStageHiFi.com

"...When I unboxed the review pair and discovered two of the most exquisite-looking, best-finished cabinets I’ve seen on any speaker near this price, or even double it. With most speakers, the first thing I do is rush to set them up. With these, I just wanted to sit back and look."

"I found its sound highly engaging, and capable of holding my interest. I was able to sustain my utter enthusiasm for its sound for long periods without ever getting fatigued...the buyer of a pair of Gold GX100s will be rewarded with something he or she can own and cherish for many years.

Setting the Gold Standard

Home Cinema Choice magazine gives their verdict on the Gold GX Series with an all round 5 star approval across the board.

In the latest January 2012 issue of Home Cinema Choice magazine our Gold GX series was reviewed, tried and tested for performance, design and features and then rewarded with a fantastic overall review of 5/5 stars across the categories.

Here's a snippet taken from the full review "Running through Pirates...had me scribbling all sorts of notes ('huge, rich, foundation-shifting bass with power and grip'; 'nil flex on the 15in piston'; 'Exciting, musical and able to create a sense of scale'), but all you need to know is that I loved this system with a passion."
