"I had an interesting if brief chat with the Norwegian manufacturer of the new Arendal loudspeakers. The company was demonstrating its smaller two-way monitor in one of Whittlebury’s compact hotel rooms yet producing a good sound by not being overambitious or trying to ignore the room acoustics.
The 1723 Monitor has an unusual soft-dome tweeter behind a waveguide that produced a bright, transparent yet sweet treble very much to my liking. Arendal makes all its own drive units.
Surprisingly, the speakers are sold direct to the public from Norway at a reasonable €1600 delivered. A matching mass-loaded stand is available as is an interesting sub-woofer."
