IMG Reviews the EV SonicXS
9:12 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
Not many people are familiar with the Telex and ElectroVoice (EV) brand names, but they have been at the top of the concert audio scene for many years. Now, they have brought their expertise into the consumer audio market with the EV SonicXS. Greg Gant, our audio editor, explains why the $200 price tag may be justified:
After properly placing them in the room, the Lord of the Rings DVD was brought to life by superb stereo and even depth reproduction. EV managed to surprise me again with outstanding sound quality. Once I properly placed the speakers, the stereo image was quite impressive when sitting ten feet away.If that didn't impress you yet, then read the rest of the review for more details. IMG will be review more speakers from Telex in the future.
Up close, these speakers were also impressive. I enjoyed Max Payne’s slow-motion effects as the subwoofer pushed out the thumping heart effects and bullets flying wildly. The starkness of the highs sometimes felt too bitter, Medal of Honor wore thin after a rather long session.
