Dick Olsher:
“There are few speakers that I sorely miss after they depart my listening room. The Unlimited II most definitely belongs in that category. It showcases what omnidirectional loudspeaker magic is all about. Its uniform power response is responsible for an exceptionally wide sweet spot and spectacularly solid imaging. Packaged as an entry-level loudspeaker, the Unlimited combines a single carbon- fiber Dicks Dipole Driver (DDD), the ultimate Walsh-type bending-wave transducer, with an 8-inch woofer which is floor-loaded in a sealed compact tower enclosure. The DDD yields a superbly coherent wave launch that puts most multiway speakers to shame. The extreme treble is slightly deficient in detail and air, but as ample compensation the Unlimited floats an emotionally cogent soundstage capable of unveiling the music’s dynamic nuances with a level of conviction that is unmatched at this price point. Setup is critical. A minimum of a few feet of breathing space from the rear wall yields excellent depth perspective and transient clarity.”
