I recently took delivery of a pair of Nero (Ferrari metallic black) 7Ts. I have a small-medium sized room with a minimalist 2-channel system (Levinson No.512 SACD/CD player, Bryston 4B SST2 amplifier, and Audioquest WBY cables). My last 4 speakers were the Paradigm Signature S2v3, Usher Audio Mini II Diamond, Dynaudio Confidence C1, & the B&W 805 Signature.
I am posting my impressions here as this is a new speaker that Kirk Midstkog in TAS called the Most Significant Product Introduction at CES 2011 and there are, as of yet, zero reviews available. TAS & Stereophile reviews are forthcoming.
Hopefully, the 7Ts will be my last speakers (!). These speakers seem to have no weaknesses. Transparency is exceptional with stunning resolution, especially in the midrange. They throw a big 3-D soudstage populated with palpable images. Bass is extended with impressive weight yet is agile with gobs of timbral detail. The best part: these speakers infuse music with a dynamic life which makes listening to music engaging and involving. All told, these are the most transparent and realistic sounding speakers I have ever owned...or heard. $9850 is too low.
