by Gary Sandison on Kralk Audio Loudspeakers

Alan has just supplied and fited these and they are by far the best speakers i have owened and i have owened al lot!
These just sound real and instruments and drums are lifelike Alan even set these up in my home he is a true gentleman and a real craftsman.
I have had speakers costing over5K that did not even come close to the superb sound quality that these portray.
Bass is incredible deep and pounds but has no flabby bass whatsoever. These are what i have been searching for for a long time and Alan could charge a lot more for these as they are worth every penny.
If you are in the market for new speakers i highly recommend you give Alan a call as these outperform major manufacturers by a wide margin.

I could go on all day about how good these sound but you just need to listen to these and i am sure you will be hooked mine are not even run in yet and i listened to TOTO live and it was like being there.

Best ever !!!!

I have been aware of Kralk speakers for 3 years or so, last year following an audio show and the following buzz that the TDB12 ‘s caused I decided to check out what the fuss was about. I was used to my Neat Momentum speakers and considered them to be excellent. Following a demo at Alan’s house I decided to pop a deposit down and let him loose on a pair. From the moment I gave him the money we entered into a contract like no other I have experienced, a personal service is a gross understatement. The speakers were delivered to my home and installed and from the first note of a track I knew the wait had been worth every minute. Alan is a gentleman and to buy from Kralk is a very different experience to mass market products. The value of these speakers far exceeds the price point and the added value of them being made by one man to fantastic standards is just an amazing boost to anyone’s Hifi journey. Music comes alive with these speakers and the whole package that Alan delivers makes these the best deal in audio without exception. Words are not enough to explain what a happy buyer I am.
