Fantastic, rich and detailed. In my 12x14 listening area, I can often turn my sub off. However, I usually leave the crossover around 50Hz. The wood enclosure is beautiful, binding posts solid, and the grill attaches via magnets. I recommend powering these with a robust amp. I went from an Onkyo TX-8555 to a Rotel RB-1582 MkII, and the difference was profound. More clarity, control in the low end, and an already impressive soundstage made even more so. One other thing that impressed me was the little speakers' ability to hit the highs without sounding shrill. Based on my preferences I was told to avoid metallic tweeters - I'm glad I listened to the advice. I can't say enough about these speakers. Dynaudio has a fan for a long time!
Pros: Rich, detailed sound. Impressive across the sound spectrum without being bloated down low and shrill up high. Wood enclosure is solid and beautiful. Classy, understated design - a beautiful touch of Denmark! Can reach ear-splitting levels with a strong amp. Maintains all positives mentioned above at low volumes, too!
Cons: Made in China. Only 1 pair of binding posts. A powerful amp is needed to get these babies to sound their best. Feed them well!

These are exceptional speakers. I have a very small listening room, so finding the right speaker is a serious challenge. After many "trial and error" attempts with other brands and models, the Evoke 10's were the clear winner. Although they are quite compact in size, they sound very unconstrained, open and expansive. The bass is quite impressive, the midrange incredible and highs very smooth. In total, a very detailed, transparent, musical loudspeaker. Hard to imagine a better small room speaker for under $2k.
Pros: Transparency, musicality, build quality, value
Cons: Needs adequate power

It takes awhile for them to break in, but they are well worth it. Everything that you have read about the Evoke 10 in other reviews is true. They are very balanced in their presentation, especially with music. They can be used for home theater, but will need a powered sub. I power them with a Cambridge Audio CXR 200 and use an Oppo BDP 105 for multi channel audio and video playback. I use two older SVS SB2000 subs to augment bass reproduction. I would recommend the Evoke 10 speakers to anyone who needs a small footprint speaker for seriously good music.

Purchased these speakers and cannot say enough. Powered by a NAD 388 150Wx2 Class D (High Bypass "On") with AudioQuest wire. Small office with a little powered Monitor Audio 8" sub. Once setup was complete, these speakers just brought every song to life. Incredible detail and clarity. Close your eyes and the music becomes 3 dimensional. Just wonderful.
Pros: Sound Quality, Clarity, Cabinet Quality, Magnetic Grills, Power Requirement
Cons: Price...but totally worth it. Needs a powered sub for full spectrum of sound.
