Gingko Audio ClaraVu 7 MkIIPrice: $2995 per pair


Jeff said: I’ve been completely blown away by Gingko Audio’s ClaraVu 7 MkII. My listening room is a difficult space for many conventional speakers, but the Gingkos excelled in this tough environment. While tolerant of less-than-ideal placement, they really sang when I took the trouble to get their positions just right. This was when the ClaraVu 7 MkII became not merely a very good loudspeaker, but one of the most interesting I’ve heard in a long time.

The gist: Unconventional in some ways, but impressive to hear nonetheless.
