B&W Rock Solid


Every so often, a product comes up for review that makes people stop in their tracks when they see it, and the Solids had such an effect on me. Aesthetically they’re very pleasing, but the sound is equally likely to stop you in your tracks, involving and detailed as it is. True bass reproduction is better than on the majority of small monitors.

In much the same way that JBL’s Control 1s and Yamaha’s NS10s became small studio or near-field standards due to particular sonic qualities, I could see the Solids occupying a similar position in the future; you’ll be pleased to know that they won’t break the bank either. The bottom line is that the Solids are a very competent pair of monitors from any viewpoint — domestic, studio or installation — and I can recommend them wholeheartedly.
