Canada Hi-Fi Gives Monitor Audio's Climate 80 speakers a fantastic review!
Suave Kajko of Canada Hi-Fi was looking for a replacement pair of speakers for outside on his patio. Monitor Audio recommended he grab a pair of Climate 80 outdoor speakers to replace his much older JBL speakers, and it seems he was very pleased with the upgrade!
Please see below for some highlights from his review:
"...as soon as I began listening to the CL80s, I realized that these speakers were in an entirely different class."
"I was immediately presented with clean, sweet sounding midrange, where most of the music and vocals take place. Vocals were reproduced with accuracy and sang with realism. String instruments offered great detail and texture. All of the tracks I listened to had a rich, natural sound."
"Something else that I was pleasantly surprised with was the soundstaging."
"Bass performance was well beyond what my JBLs were ever capable of. This was of course thanks to the Auxiliary Bass Radiator and the larger driver / enclosure. This greater bass extension injected some additional life into instruments like bass guitars and kick drums."
"I listened to the CL80s for many hours on my patio and they brought pleasure to my ears every time, regardless of music selection."
"They played equally well with indie rock and classical music, and everything in-between. I also had a chance to play them for a few friends who were quick to comment about their engaging sound quality."
"I have no qualm saying that the Monitor Audio CL80 is the best sounding outdoor speaker I've had the pleasure of listening to because that's truly the case. This speaker enabled me to enjoy music outdoors like never before."
"Aside from a fantastic sound, you'll be pleased with their versatile mounting options and rugged build quality. With four different models, you're sure to find one that suits your patio size and budget. Happy outdoor listening!"
