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. Highly recommended."

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."

April 2012

Remarkably clear and musical, the GX100's create a full sound with plenty of detail. They are beautifully made with lovely wood veneer complementing the simple styling of the drivers.

As good as they look it was the sound that impressed me most. I was really impressed by the stereo image and the ribbon tweeter positions of hi-hats, cymbals and acoustic guitars. It blends seamlessly into the natural sound of the mid/bass driver so voices, strings, guitars, and other instruments stand out from each other in a coherent image. Plenty of solid and deep bass from a reasonable sized cabinet.

Very good speakers at any sound level. As engaging for late night listening as they are when turned up. Thank you!
