Vade said: The Van Zyl Audio Frontline excelled at most of the things I value in a speaker -- detail, dynamics, soundstaging, tonal accuracy, texture -- while delivering them in a package that looks good and won’t leave your wallet whimpering too loudly.

Read the Ultra Audio review.

The gist: Unique speaker for a listener seeking extreme coherence.
