Bass reproduction was well above average with promising depth and articulation and while the stereo images were quite well focused, the treble lacked some detail, and depth effects were moderate.
Overall the sound felt a little compressed in terms of perceived dynamic range but on the other hand pitch stability was extremely good - £420 HiFi Choice 1984
