Review ATC HTS40 on-wall loudspeaker

We know British ATC mainly from studio speakers. And bookshelfs and floorstanders. Think of the SCM19 V2 which has become a reference at Alpha Audio. What you may not know is that they also manufacture Home Theatre models. The so-called HTS series. We test the HTS40. A large – heavy – on wall loudspeaker.

Review KEF CI4100QL THX in-wall speaker

Are you looking for a compact, well priced built-in speaker? KEF has an interesting option with the 4100QL THX. This built-in speaker sounds pleasant overall. No sharpness, good resolving power and a nice vocal area. Do know that you need a subwoofer for a full experience.

Review DALI Phantom 280S

What a speaker. The DALI Phantom 280S is truly a monstrous in-wall. The sound is complete, refined and dynamic. That makes the Phantom ideal for music. But also in movies it shines. It can transform like a Cameleon. Perfect. Though it’s not a cinemaspeaker par excellence. It doesn’t reach the deepest bass. Although his size does suggest so. However: when it comes to music, we don’t miss it and we especially enjoy the enormous stage that the Phantom 280S sets up. A worthy replacement for a sturdy, high-quality floor stand. Alpha Approved!
