Avalon Sentinel II Review by Jack Liu of Audio Art Magazine
Avalon is finally successful. Why would I say such a thing? Does it mean that Avalon speakers were not great before? Otherwise, why would I say that it is just now successful? I hope the readers don’t misunderstand my meaning. What I really mean is that Avalon speakers have had the highest standard before. However, it still lacked one step to
perfection. But now, the Sentinel II has made that step.
An Apple of the Sweetest Fragrance What is that step? It is the performance of low frequencies and extremely low frequencies.
Undoubtedly, we admit that Avalon speakers have had exceptional performance in soundquality, transient response, resolution, transparency & soundstaging. However, for the lowest frequency there was still one step to reach. We may have said that the Avalon was a very talented & intelligent lady before, but although it was very good-looking, it was not quite sexy enough. Now the lowest frequency is there, strongly attractive.
In other words, I might have said that the Avalon was an unripe apple before, but now the Sentinel II is a mature fruit with a sweet fragrance. Many readers may still not have a clue what I am writing about. Is the editor telling a story or he is making an equipment review. If so, why has he not entered the topic so far? Please be patient. We will get there soon. I am very excited after listening to such great Loudspeakers. My image of Avalon has changed greatly. When I’m overly excited, I talk too much. So, let’s enter today’s topic.
