Most notably, the speakers deliver music in a way that invites extended listening and emotional engagement…a deeper connection with the lyrics and the music. You are inspired, moved…a smile or a tear. These experiences are what I crave for, outside of critical listening for reviewing purpose. When I listen for pleasure, I need to feel. And Alexia Series 2 douses me with a pouring of emotions as it reaches into the listening space and resolutely grasps you in her beautiful embrace. For this reason alone—never mind the individual aspects of superiority over Alexia —this is my new reference speaker. This is where technology meets art. The beauty stays; she’s a songstress.
