“Wenn es einen Lautsprecherentwickler und -hersteller gibt, der es in den letzten Jahren mit seinen außergewöhnlichen Kreationen geschafft hat, sich nachhaltig ins Gedächtnis der Audiophilen zu brennen, dann Sven Boenicke”

Thomas Schmidt, HIFI Lautsprecher Test-Jahrbuch 2019


“A giant killer…”

“The Boenicke W8s do absolutely glorious things to the voices of female vocalists…”

Ernest Denman, Australian HiFi


“But what really makes it all click with a proper bang and make these speakers very unique is their imaging capabilities. This aspect is literally out of this world…”

Dawid Grzyb, 6moons.com / hifiknights.com


“Sven Boenicke é o bom rebelde do áudio que veio ‘abanar’ as estruturas do poder instalado.”

José Victor Henriques, hificlube.net


“Muy recomendables”

José Manuel Delgado, hifilivemagazine.com


“Maybe in some subconscious way Sven Boenicke goes beyond just hearing the live event…”

Tony Schmidt, AUDIO ADDICTION


Quite simply the most stunning pair of small floorstanding speakers we have heard – be prepared to be amazed.”

John Roberts, Midland Audio Exchange


“…der Sound ist eine Wucht. Und auch die Schönheit der Lautsprecher. Meine Frau und ich hören Musik zusammen. Das ist eine Premiere. Wir hören Beethoven, Mozart, Dvořák, ACDC, Metallica, Sade, Prince, Michael Jackson, Lorde, London Grammar… Und der Sound, Ihr Soundteppich macht süchtig…”

Joachim Söhnen, Deutschland


“…glass-clear purity which makes it incredibly easy to follow even the smallest details. It comes from the bottom of the bass to the brightest tones…”

Roy Ervin Solstad, Hifi+ (Review in Norwegian)


“Given the construction of the speakerit might not be too surprising to discover that it handles stringed instruments in a way that makes most rivals sound like a bedside radio, but its performance with voices is such that it gets you wondering if Boenicke has also found a way to equip the W8 with lungs…”

Ed Selley, HIFI Choice


“…Dasselbe Spielchen könnte man auch mit dem Standlautsprecher W8 machen. Optisch nicht mehr als ein schmales Handtuch, akustisch geballte Wucht, die den unvorbereiteten Hörer mit offenem Mund staunend innehalten und überlegen lässt, wo diese Farbenpracht mit ehernem Fundament wohl herkommt. Ein schier unfassbarer Lautsprecher, der sich mühelos auch in größeren Räumen durchsetzen kann…”

Fidelity Magazin


“Der Herzensöffner”

“…It was an fantastic experience – and as i can say it was the first time in my life to see a really tiny speaker sounding as loud as a hungry T-Rex…”
