Boston Acoustics A25 Loudspeakers

A Five Star Review *****By What Hi-Fi? June 07, 2011 Review The A-25s deliver an impeccably judged and likeable performance.The two-way A 25 measures 10.7″ H by 7.25″ W by 8.9″ D, weighs a surprisingly heavy 10 lbs, and uses Boston’s 1″ Kortec soft-dome tweeter and a 5.25″ mid/woofer with a cone of ceramic and glass-fiber polymer. Inside the braced cabinet, a wooden reinforcement disc essentially doubles the thickness of the speaker’s top panel to 1.4? and works to minimize extraneous frequency radiation for a cleaner overall sound and better stereo imaging, says BA. The frequency range is listed as 55Hz–25kHz, the sensitivity as 89dB, and the nominal impedance as 8 ohms. The speaker has scratch-resistant high-gloss side panels; all other surfaces are covered in a textured veneer reminiscent of faux leather, giving the A 25 a purposeful, no-nonsense look while sidestepping the sometimes cheap appearance of the ubiquitous black-ash veneer. It’s an attractive speaker indeed: Whenever I came close to the thing, I wanted to kiss it. The A 25’s heft and outstanding fit and finish belie its modest price. Save $200.00 on retail
