Darko.Audio podcast #12 – Small speakers

  • Sometimes we want steak, other times only sushi will do.

    And so it goes with loudspeakers: we might lust for (full-range) floorstanders but either our room’s acoustics and/or our aesthetic sensibilities say otherwise: only standmounts can be accommodated.

    Like food, it’s better to have too little than too much.

    In our latest episode of the Darko.Audio podcast, Jeff Dorgay of TONEAudio and I discuss small loudspeakers with our informal chat romping through the following products (and more):
