MAGIC CD De JeanMarie Reynaud

For those who want to buy a speaker to enjoy the music, and not worry about the "audiophile" qualities like "soundstage" or "transparency," the Jean-Marie Reynaud Twin Mk. II is one of the very best speakers available for under a grand/pair. There are numerous two-way minimonitors out there, but this is maybe the first under a grand (and one of very few, period) to possess an absolutely seamless transition from woofer/mid to tweeter- for the midrange-up does possess the magical coherence one would associate with a full-range electrostatic speaker. (This speaker uses a series crossover, which may be responsible for this quality.) Small-scale jazz and country music both sound very convincing, as does piano. (I consider country music an acid test for midrange.) The top is unassuming- slightly understated (but never dull), which makes this speaker compatible with less-than-perfect solid-state electronics and front ends. In fact, less-than-perfect solid-state may provide a better synergy than cleaner electronics, which may make this speaker sound a little too "polite." From the midrange up, there are *very* few speakers, at *any* price, that will outperform the Jean-Marie Reynaud Twin Mk. II. This speaker is also very satisfying when played at low or "background" levels. For unlike many speakers, its qualities are maintained at low volume levels.Now to the drawbacks. Like all minimonitors, the bottom-end is compromised. With the JMR Twin II, it's in the form of a slightly fat upper-bass, which can accentuate kick-drum and makes snares sound a bit oversized. Recordings with prominent upper bass (older jazz recordings, for example) can make vocals sound a little "chesty" at times. Although mid-bass information is there, it is high in harmonic distortion, and gets pushed into the lower midrange when driven hard. With high-powered rock, this can result in a somewhat "boxy" type of coloration. Especially when played loud. (I'll add that rock music played at lower levels sounds fantastic on the Twin, since LF distortion components are reduced.) The low-level resolution is also blurred, which also relates to the lack of staging- virtually no depth or height, although the lateral placement is very good. With classical works, it's not a speaker that one will hear the rosin on individual strings. But in spite of all the lack of ultimate resolution, classical works still sound *very* natural and well-balanced, and the midrange coherence does nice things with winds and brass. With these mentioned faults, along with the utterly listenable and forgiving midrange and top end, the Jean Marie Reynaud Twin Mk. II provides a slightly romantic overall tonal balance that will make only bass fanatics yearn for a subwoofer. And this slightly-romantic balance makes the Twin an ideal speaker for those more concerned with the performance than the recording. As well as those who would rather relax and enjoy the music than sit in the sweet spot and try to decipher what type of violin the concertmaster is playing.Since this is a front-ported transmission-line design, the JMR Twin is also ideal for apartment dwellers who choose not to impose their musical tastes on the neighbors.For those who shy away from minimonitors due to anomalies in the midrange, harshness, or those who like enjoying music for *hours* at a time, the Jean-Marie Reynaud Twin Mk. II could be your speaker. For what it does do well (midrange, electrostatic-like coherence) is rare for a two-way mini and also rare for any speaker under a grand. (Or two grand, for that matter.) For what it does not do well, unless you're either a head-banger, bass lover, or an imaging-staging-hyper-detail freak, the drawbacks never get in the way of the music. It's also the type of speaker that could make you want to leave the system playing ("smooth" jazz or "soft" rock on FM) while you sleep. And the natural-wood finish of the speaker is superb. Value is 5 stars in spades. Overall performance is a weak 5 stars, but 5 stars nonetheless due to the fact many music lovers will be able to live with the Jean-Marie Reynaud Mk. II's for a *very* long time.
this is one of the best bookshelf speakers, and definit the best value. I totally agree everyone said in review. btw, if you buy the speakers, please add that breakin magic cd with it. worth the money and time... 2b1af7f3a8
