Lives for gear

Well, it looks like the C-box 2 amp is 25W RMS, so I guess one obvious sacrifice is output level... and probably also the harmonic distortion in the bass.

The quoted specs of the Abacus A-Box 5 are ridiculous: "Linear from 16 Hz bis 20.000 Hz" [sic] with just a 5-inch woofer! And the APC series claim to be linear both in magnitude and phase from 16Hz to 22kHz, which I think can only be achieved if you use digital filters with very long buffers, leading to latency...

But of course, if you can live with these (suspected) drawbacks together with using other monitors, the Abacus speakers might work in some situations.
