The wood and glass GEM has a cable management system.

On it, our kit serves up a sound full of body and subtle dynamics.

Detailing is good, while the sweet midrange is bracketed by a detailed treble and ponderous bass.

However, our sample was badly made and prone to fall apart, and that fundamental lack of design quality means it loses out.
