WHAT YOU KIDDING ME!!

 Has any one listened to a boston acoustics speaker recently..?  I read a review about the M340 & how good it was & all that. The review was really convincing. I said to myself here we go again another review of just another  product... Some how I could never get it out of my mind.. Went to have a listen & ended up buying them without evening planing to buy speakers in the first place.

 I compared them with 5 different speakers in the shop, but in terms of performance none of them were even close.

I will give you one reason: The bass is rich fast & deep like that of an electrostatic speaker & this thing is not even up to 6inches wide.

Amazing.. Its still amazing me.

 Edit

 My sonus faber cremona's are gone!!

RE: WHAT YOU KIDDING ME!!

Why does it amaze you that the Bostons appeal to you more than others? What speakers did you compare them with?

You said you compared the Bostons to 5 others, don't state which ones.

Could it not be a case that your current amp struggled with the Sonus Fabers?

Listen to the music, not the hifi.

I would be great if what hifi could do a review of the boston acoustics M25 speakers.

I have listened to the sonus faber with so many amps & its not giving me the sound am getting now..    Its 4ohm anyway easy to drive.

4 Ohms are harder to drive, mind your amp does not cut out.

Zackly my point. Seems the OP is being very surreptitious over the models he's heard. My one concern, especially about amplification, is the Sonus Fabers are around 5k while the Bostons are sub-£2k.

I would also have assumed someone with 5k to spend on speakers would have a better understanding of spelling and grammar, but then perhaps that's just me being cynical

Look like typical american speakers maybe good for bass but..
