I have had 517 speakers in my system for almost a year, and it is time for a short testimonial. From listening to and reviewing some prototypes to the final hardware and firmware, I have never had a better experience with a product or company.
I am in the process of developing and testing digital streaming systems, and the 517 speakers are the best tell-all I have ever had. They tell me when things are bad and reward my work when I have done the right thing. Each incremental change is laid out for me to evaluate. I have not found the peak of their ability to reproduce music.
The speakers themselves have eliminated complexity in my system, stimulating my work to do the same with other components. My journey continues, and the 517 speakers prod me to do more and enhance my listening experiences!
