New Neat PETITE SX Loudspeaker

Neat Acoustics, Barnard Castle November 25, 2009. Neat Acoustics is pleased to announce the launch of the PETITE SX. The PETITE SX is the fourth generation of the PETITE — a loudspeaker that has been delivering a thoroughly insightful musical performance for 20 years. The PETITE will be available from December 2009.

In common with its larger ‘brother’ the ELITE SX — and unlike traditional bass reflex designs — the PETITE SX incorporates an innovative staggered port-tuning design. A 32mm diameter port on the rear of the cabinet has a narrow operating band centred on 40Hz. An additional 50mm diameter port, also mounted on the rear of the cabinet, is tuned higher over a wider operating band.

Just sold my Epos ES30s

Sort of sad to see a pair of loudspeakers go that I have been listening to and enjoying for around 10 years. Strangely, looking back, it seems I change speakers around every decade.
The Epos’ have a wonderful way of communicating music but having recently had the Neat MF7s here for a month or so the ES30s just had to go.
Next week, hopefully, a pair of MF9s will be arriving – In fact Bob Surgeoner the man behind Neat Acoustics is bringing them and maybe I can persuade him to help carry then up the two flights of stairs. I’ll report on the Neats as soon as they have had a few days to run in.
At the moment I’m using a pair of stand-mounting ALR Note 3s on Slate stands. Rather missing the scale and weight of the Neat MF7s but the ALRs aren’t too shabby as they say.
The Note’s have mass adjustable Auxilliary Bass Radiators (ABRs) and setting the right tuning point for the bass has given me a speaker with a good bass entension but far more importantly excellent timing.
