With construction that could stop a howitzer, and a likeable sound, this Blok's a great buy

Write your own review

For

  • Massive construction
  • delivers a stable sound and firm bass

Against

  • Not hugely subtle
If you’re after a feeling of permanency with your rack, then this hefty Blok system should fit the bill. Featuring thick 15mm glass (and supports that look like they would stand a Howitzer shell), this is no shrinking violet. 
A big sound from a big rack
Sat on the Blok, our reference kit served up a big, stable sound. There’s much to like, including a pleasing tonal balance that features firm bass as well as well-integrated midrange and treble in its fast-paced and open-sounding delivery. It’s not all perfect though: we’d like some more subtlety and precision in the sound, just to tie things up nicely.
As it stands, though, for the money you get a lot 
of product with more than ample space to take most home cinema or hi-fi components. This behemoth should definitely 
be on your audition list.
