Reviewer Kent Johnson at Positive Feedback Online says about the MBS-1:
"The MBS-1s produce a large, deep, very detailed soundstage. They truly disappear while doing this.....Their bass is adequately deep for reproducing the acoustic bass......The midrange performance is coherent yet detailed....While in no way limited to vocal music, these are very much a vocal lover's speaker. The treble is very open, extended, and well balanced relative to the mid and bass frequencies. Cymbals had realistic sheen and overtones as did other percussive instruments such as vibraphones, chimes, and bells.
In short, every part of the MBS-1s' performance contributed to a very musical, balanced, and satisfying reproduction of all the recordings that I listened to." ...."For me, the MBS-1 immediately reminded me of the Xavian XN270 speakers that I reviewed in PFO 42, both physically and with the same passionate attention to detail, but at roughly one-sixth the price."
5-star Verdict for the arm's spatiality, tonality, bass, build and versatility. The reviewer heartily recommended it!
