Leaning In…

This is a speaker that does everything at least really well. Its absence of stand out qualities is what allows it to do the thing it does best of all – which is get behind the music. It’s not that the speakers are sonically invisible, but they refuse to intrude or draw attention to themselves, instead standing firmly behind the performers and the performance, the recording and the event. What they don’t do, you don’t notice, which is what allows them to engage your musical attention and hold it. Few speakers that I’ve used are as effortlessly enjoyable and satisfying as the Peak Consults – and those few are the ones that I return to again and again.

I have never understood the audiophile fascination with ‘studio monitors’. I get the attractions of the ‘pro’ association, but it overlooks the fact that studio monitors do an entirely different job and play by a different set of rules. What has that got to do with the Peak Consult Sinfonias? I suspect that all those people buying ATCs think that they are somehow investing in ‘the musical truth’. But if you want speakers that are true to the music, but also deliver it without fear or favour – and without pulling it apart – then it is the Peak Consult Sinfonias that are the real deal. The concept and appearance might have stepped straight out of the late ‘80s, but the musical integrity and overall coherence is as timeless as it is consistently enjoyable. Ralph Waldo Emerson famously stated that, “The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.” This particular ‘fiddle’ has been a long time in the making – and it’s all the better for that.
