Simply amazed
16.11.2014
I was a little unsure when I ordered these, not too many reviews available, but
. I am simply amazed at the clarity of these speakers, great detail without being forced, or hyped.
The stereo imaging is also very good, you can almost "feel" where the sound is. The bottom end feels solid and genuine.
Build quality is good and they look very great (love the illuminated logo!).
The eq controls and wide sweet spot make positioning very easy, and I no problem getting good results from my smallish room.
Early days still, but well worth considering if you are looking for well balanced, detailed monitors with good bass.
Oh,I nearly forgot........they go VERY loud!

Nice ones
18.01.2017
Using these in a project studio. Overall sound engineering experience - over 15 years. Monitoring experience: KRK V8 (old series), Tannoy Reveal Active, Event 20/20 v2 + ART SLA1, Fostex PM 0.5 mkII, Microlab SOLO 2

Pros:
Compared to Event 20/20 V2 passive + ART SLA1 amplifier, Sceptres have less aggressive and pronounced high frequences (which is good) and better low end.
Sweet spot is really big. Design is solid and durable (as far as I'm concerned).

Cons:
Gain knob has no notch at unity (very inconvinient)
Horisontal positioning is not recommended by manufacturer (less flexibility)
Pretty heavy and pricey (oh well)
