The OBERON 1s receive a fantastic review from What Hi-Fi? and are awarded five out of five stars! The reviewer is impressed with the speakers fine build, unfussy nature and articulate sound.
The OBERON 1s are praised for the way they deliver vocals: “The ’1s are stunning with vocal-based material. We listen to the likes of Tracy Chapman’s Telling Stories, Van Morrison’s Moondance and Bon Iver’s For Emma, Forever Ago and marvel at the way these speakers deliver voices in such a solid and expressive way.”
Whilst listening to Stravinsky’s The Rite Of Spring What Hi-Fi? are impressed by how the OBERONs convey the wide-ranging dynamics: "They manage to render an expansive and sharply focused soundstage that stays stable regardless of the recording’s complexity.” They continue: “It’s the Oberons’ ability to reveal so much information, but also arrange it in a musically cohesive way that really makes them shine.”
What Hi-Fi?'s overall verdict: "The Oberon 1s are an excellent choice if you’re looking for a high quality small speaker with an unfussy nature.”
