Hifi Critic says

"Impressively, stereo images jump out from the box locations..."

"The off-axis output in the vertical plane was symmetrical and near perfect, thanks to the waveguide..."

Conclusion

"The Arendal Monitor has sailed smoothly through this exacting review, demonstrating a calm confidence in the face of all the tests. It is not particularly compact and consequently has high linearity, great dynamics, good timing and a huge dynamic range. It is sensitive, relatively easy to drive and will party when required. Well designed, well made and well finished, with a powerful informative sound that is very rock capable, a Best Buy rating is ensured".
