“Those hesitant to believe that such small speakers could possibly play this room to full satisfaction have simply never heard a solid-wood Boenicke speaker before. This system did space, scale and depth like none other I came across.”

“I’ve heard what people had to say about your room, and I guess it comes to you as no surprise that most of them were blown away. Mainly because of the small form factor (of W8).
Today I looked at what users wrote on forums and so on. The conclusion is that it was the most unexpected thing many of them heard this year. Things like „Sound of the AudioShow 2014” appeared as well. Additional and similar stuff should afloat in the following days…”

“Some rooms in Golden Tulip are enormously big. It’s a rarity to hear really good sound there. But some little things from Switzerland surprised almost everyone. It was powerful, excellently driven sound, with high dynamics and lack of any colorations. I know that man from Boenicke was wandering all day in the room, in search of the best spot for his speakers. And he found it. Everything from that system performed in a way so rarely heard on audio shows.”

As with every speaker, there is no such thing as a minimum or maximum of something. Every speaker sounds more spacious with more image depth and air, if it is not close to a rear wall. It is of course possible, as with any other speaker, to put our speakers right in the corner. But then you lose much of their incredible sound staging abilities, especially image depth. With most other speakers you lose less, because they in the first place could not create a similar imaging performance.
