KLH Albany II

These are fantastic speakers. The build quality is excellent. They have a simple, elegant design and look good with or without the grill. How do they sound? Excellent. They are clear without being fatiguing and have solid mid bass. For their size, they dig deep without getting mushy. The Albany 2s won't shake the windows but definitely carry some weight. I paired mine with an SVS sb-1000. I power the KLHs with a Yamaha A-S301 integrated amplifier. Living with the KLHs is double edged sword. They are very transparent and not forgiving in the least bit. If you play a poor recording, the Albany 2s will definitely let you know. Play a high quality track and they will sing. Simply said, I love these speakers. They provide hours of quality music and handle everything I throw at them. I can't recommend these enough. I have a Polk RTiA 7.1.2 surround sound system. If I had to start all over again, the KLHs would be at the top of my list.

Pros: Clear without being fatiguing Punchy mid-bass without being mushy Very transparent

Cons: Almost too transparent Not forgiving on bad recordings

the amount of bass surprised me. That's a good thing too! I would recommend these to anyone looking for very good bookshelf speakers.

Pros: size, amount of bass

Cons: none

Not for me but an excellent budget contender

Allowed 30 hours+ for breakin. The black vinyl looks plain but finish texture looks natural with a silvery sheen that stands out when light hits it just right. The speaker is sized for easy placement and a bit shorter in depth than others. The woofer material and tweeter looked impeccable, fit and finish was very good especially given the price point. There is enough bottom end support w/o a midbass bloat. What stood out above others at or even higher in price was in detail resolution. Among the best in resolution at its' price point. Detail was very good without sounding too dry or overly analytical (such as Quad S-2s and Infinity Reference 152) but they follow in their ability to resolve detail while retaining enough musicality. Some glare in the middle to upper mids that seemed to get a bit better after playing them a while, mostly affecting voices but never fully went away, perhaps more time needed. Not as airy as what I'm used to but really good for movies and good enough for music given the price. The soundstage and instrument separation were good, etc. Imaging VG. My impression of efficiency is closer to 90 dB overall. Pros: resolution, dynamics, imaging, efficiency Cons: Tonally I felt something was off in comparison to what I am used to (opinion and reason I returned them) and could be strident at times. I'm used to Focal & Triangle, both were more $. Still, a solid 4.5 stars, IMO.These should be used with a more neutral to warmer soundi

Pros: Pros: resolution 5/5, dynamics 4/5, imaging 5/5, Efficiency 4.5/5 all within its' price point. If you want a small speaker more oriented to home theater but still decent for music, for the price it will be difficult to find another set of speakers that outright outperform the KLH Albany IIs.

Cons: Cons: Tonally I felt something was off in comparison to what I am used to (opinion and reason I returned them) and could be strident at times. I am used to Focal 807Ws and Triangle Zetas, both retailed at more money. Still, a solid 4.5 stars. I also have Cambridge Minx XLs (also retailing at this price). The KLH have more resolution, detail, are more dynamic and image better and have more PRAT but the Minx XLs while smoother, have a more natural tone to me.
