Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: You forgot the bargain speaker, AN AX-TWO nt

But they are continuously sold out!

It's frustrating that I get e-mails about the AX Two - they ask dealers - none left. Even here in Hong Kong - nope. It's not good when you can't meet the demand because people go elsewhere. IMO the AX Two is the speaker you just have to be able to stock because in a real sense entry level products (regardless of maker) are the gateway drug. If you do a great job on that - you have a very very good chance of selling that customer on the next level up the food chain. Or at the very least they will be at the top of the audition list.

I think this is what the OTO Phono SE does so remarkably well - it is such a ridiculous bargain for build/sound/elegance at a not crazy price that when owners come into money - they look at M3/M6 and Quest/Empress or even Jinros.

I'd have mentioned the AX Two but at 90dB sensitive I feel I would get shouted down for it not being HE. Several years back I was shouted down that the AN E HE was not HE enough for this forum. I made the note that the E can pelt you with 5 watts and after all they partner them with 8 watt SETs all the time but they're not ultra HE (103dB sensitive 8 ohm min impedance kinds of speakers).

Even the LS-3/5a at 83dB is an easy load and could be argued is high Efficiency. 5 watts can drive those speakers fine too.
