The March issue of US-based audio magazine The Absolute Sound is out now, revealing their much-coveted Editors’ Choice Awards for 2017 (cue drum roll…).
Editor-in-Chief Robert Harley and his team of expert audiophile reviewers offer their top product recommendations from across the world of all things audio – from amplifiers and DACs to headphones and equipment racks – complete with mini-reviews of each award-winning product.
Here at Gamut HQ we’re honoured to report that our RS3i loudspeaker is a winner in the $10,000-$20,000 price range, holding its own in a category dominated mainly by floorstanders and confirming that our compact standmount really does pack a full-range punch!
“From the moment reviewer Kirk Mitskog first connected the RS3i… he heard a sound that was compelling, and it only got better with time and fine-tuning,” notes the mini-review. “It offers all the advantages of a small stand-mounted speaker – those of illuminating imaging and wide-open soundstaging – combined with stunning dynamic presence. Capable of sounding much bigger than it looks, it is a honey that should be on anyone’s short list for a small-to-medium-sized room.”
