December 2016 - TAVES 2016 Show Wrapup (Nola Brio Quad)
December 2016 - AV Showrooms bestows PRODUCT OF THE YEAR AWARD 2016 to the Brio Trio and Brio Quatro "Nola Brio Trio and Brio Quatro: I bought the Quatro’s; the loudspeakers with the two subwoofers. These little six pound speakers fill the entire room with enormous sound and play every music genre with pinpoint imaging no matter where you sit or stand in the room. The open-baffle airiness makes my listening a very emotional experience and the tightness and integration of the bass astounds me. Everything is in its right place. Instruments are separated and vocals are as clear as a bell. What more can I say about these little gems except you need to listen for yourself!" Full video review

February 2016 - The Absolute Sound magazine has bestowed a 2016 Editor's Choice Award on the Boxer 2. They wrote: "The Boxer is an unassuming, 2-way, bass-reflex compact with a sound that's unerringly musical - a canny balance of warmth and detail. Images are vivid, and transient reflexes quick. This is not a shy, recessed presentation, nor is the treble brittle or fatiguing, Excepr for the slightest presence-range dip, there's substance to every octave, with very little dynamic compression. -NG, 203"

December 2014 - HiFi Stars reviewed the NOLA Boxer II. The reviewer concludes:
Everything seems balanced and shines in the most beautiful timbres, without being (designed) too much (or too less) somewhere in the spectrum. Such a matter of course, with the reproduction of complex musical passages, is usually found only in much higher priced speakers. And for compact speakers, their high efficiency allows even the use of less powerful amplifiers, regardless of transistor or tube.
My tip: Whoever has audiophile demands and wants to fill a small to medium sized room, should definitely listen to this loudspeaker. If I was looking for a speaker in this category, I would choose the Nola Boxer Mk II without hesitation as high priority in my shortlist. Is there a bigger compliment...?"
