We’ve already indicated above that this mini-monitor will not perform optimally in a large listening room. Much better it will come into its own in a small but fine listening room with quality amplification. The Black 50 is a loudspeaker for the connoisseur who prefers uncompromised playback over everything else. A listener who wants to hear vocals and instruments uncoloured and unsalted without any compromise.
This is not a loudspeaker for bassheads or to give parties, ‘quite the opposite in fact’. This is a viewer of the highest level for those who love chamber music, vocal work and rich instrumentation. An intimate viewer that touches the soul and occasionally gives you a sledgehammer blow ‘when you least expect it’. The emotion in the recording is unadulterated by the Black 50 and only the very best monitors can do that. It can be a speaker to integrate into your second system but do not complain afterwards when the big set gets under the dust.
