SJS: "Finally a pair of affordable loudspeakers with a good sensitivity, fine integration and scale. The Living Voice Auditorium comes from the same outfit who make some whole outrageous horn loudspeakers retailing in the many thousands of pounds category. The Auditorium is a fabulous attempt to bring a taste of the scale and dynamics of this system into a wholly domestic and affordable package. They produce a large scale dynamic and tonally exciting picture which majors on the music in a way that most similar priced loudspeakers can only dream off. They have been designed with valve amplifiers primarily in mind, resulting in a bass alignment which works with SE and PP valve amps. Their high sensitivity means that good levels of musical performance can be achieved from single figure power output valve amplifiers."
Living Voice have been manufacturing hand built loudspeakers for over ten years. During this time we have received considerable acclaim from numerous audio publications including three Best Buy awards. Our reputation is at its strongest amongst the high end fraternity, where our £30k Airscout RW24 horn system has set tongues wagging world wide :
