Acoustic Energy AE509 named Best Buy by The Ear

Acoustic Energy AE509 named Best Buy by The Ear

In the AE509 we have one of the best mid-priced floor-standers around. They offer not only impressive sonic performance and build quality but also astonishing value for money with a three-year guarantee for the ‘just in case’. These are great all-rounders, as happy with speech recordings as with orchestral pieces, baroque as with solo instruments, rock as with pop. This design possesses a meatier bass than its rivals and is worthy of a personal audition to satisfy medium to large room requirements. AE have achieved excellent driver integration here to produce a foot-tapping sound with transient speed which its rivals will jealously admire. I am looking forward to other AE models in a similar vein in the months and years to come. Here is a model that should be on any serious audiophile’s shortlist.
