The TERZA bookshelf speakers are the entry-level model in the Italian brand Chario’s Reflex range.
And don’t be fooled by this little bookshelf speaker's vintage exterior - it’s a lot more innovative on the inside than it looks! On the front panel is a 10cm midwoofer for the bass and a 2-inch tweeter for the treble. There is a bass reflex system underneath the cabinet, which rests on cones to ensure there is a gap between the cabinet and the port opening. And the back of the cabinet is even more impressive! It features two 2-inch tweeters made using WallRad Shallow Conex technology. They have a specific filtering system and optimised positioning to ensure that the sound is played from the back of the speaker. This is not new technology, but it is uncommon for it to be used on a speaker of this size and price range. Using two tweeters is also somewhat of a novelty, as are this speaker’s terminals. Chario recommends inserting the stripped cable into the centre of the terminal, folding it like an umbrella inside the terminal, then tightening up the front of the terminal. It’s a simple and effective system.
Setting up these compact bookshelf speakers is an easy job. We recommend positioning them on a Hi-Fi cabinet or mount parallel to the wall behind it and at a distance of between 10 and 15cm. And you'll get the best results by placing the speakers at a distance of between 1.5 and 2m apart from each other.
When combined with a high quality integrated amp or mini Hi-Fi system, the sound quality of these speakers will blow you away! The timbre is excellent, as are the articulation and clarity. But the most impressive part is the sound stage and scope of the sound quality, which remains full-bodied even at low volumes, comfortably filling the room with music. We don't have a bad word to say about the bright, present and realistic sound these speakers produce.
The TERZA bookshelf speakers are impressive in more ways than one, and aren’t bad to look at either! Another happy surprise and maPlatine.com top pick to add to Italian manufacturer Chario's collection! Highly recommended! Franck
