Ethos Customer Review
by Mike N., 2 years ago
These speakers entered our home just days ago to join many other pairs of great speakers from companies like B&W (home studio & office), JBL (guest rooms), James Loudspeaker & Triad (home theater), Cambridge Soundworks (gym), Polk (pool), Genelec (home studio), and others. And they're my first pair of electrostatics. As a musician with a home studio, I always prefer speakers that accurately reflect source material and minimize colorations. And these don't dissapoint.
From Hilary Hahn's violin, to Hiromi's piano, to bands like Rush, through a variety of material, these speakers sound superb and don't fatigue my ears after extended listening (which is unusual). Ethos truly shine on vocals and close miked instruments -- which may sound like they're in the room with you depending on the quality of the recording.
The Ethos now provide all the sound for an approximately 30' by 30' living room area in our home. The stereo field and tonal balance are excellent... which was a serious concern before the speakers were actually hooked up. (Acoustically, it's a difficult room with many reflective surfaces.) And at a dinner party last night... guests were admiring them because of the way they *looked*!
I maintain a large CD collection on a Kaleidescape system... and have spent hours jumping back & forth among a variety of albums & genres. For the price, they're a bargain compared with other monitor quality speakers I've listened to.
