Hi-Fi+ - National Audio Show 2016

October 10, 2016

"Founded last year but brand new to the UK, Arendal Sound (named after the Norwegian city the brand hails from) makes a simple range of speakers named ‘1723 Series’ (a big year for the city of Arendal, apparently). Alongside the trio of subwoofers, the surround and centre-channel loudspeaker (called, appropriately enough Subwoofer 1, 2, and 3, Surround, and Center), the brand makes a floorstanding tower called ‘Tower’, a standmount monitor called ‘Monitor’ and an accompanying stand called ‘Stand’. These well-made and solid speakers, demonstrated by Man 1, Man 2, and Man 3 from Arendal, were sounding clean and refined, and were allegedly almost unbreakable under normal use. Best of all, the Monitor cost £1,400 per pair and the Tower just £2,350."
