Acoustic Energy AE520 Floorstanding Loudspeakers

As long as you have the physical space to accommodate them, there’s very little downside to Acoustic Energy AE520 ownership. They play no favourites where types of music are concerned – from full-on symphony orchestras to voice-and-guitar demos, they locate the fundamentals of a recording with real tenacity and are endlessly, easily listenable in the process. They’re as enjoyable and as information-packed at very low volumes, and they don’t get shouty or coarse when you turn the wick up – they simply get louder.


Winston Churchill once memorably described Clement Attlee as “a sheep in sheep’s clothing”. There’s not much that’s sheepish about the way these Acoustic Energys look, but neither are they as straightforwardly wolfish as they appear.
