De mannan van Hardware Central hebben vandaag een smakelijke review geproduceerd, een over de Midiland S4/8200 speakerset. Deze speakers staan bekend om hun superieure geluidskwaliteit en geluidsniveaus, en volgens Hardware Central is dat terecht. Een paar kleine nadelen zijn wel dat er weinig knopjes zijn om het volume aan te passen, en aparte tweeters waren volgens de reviewer ook leuk geweest. Een hapje uit de conclusie:
In terms of sound quality, the S4/8200s are, for the most part, wonderful. The sound is incredibly clear and warm, if lacking a little brightness at times. Mid-ranges are excellent, and the subwoofer truly has to be heard to be believed. This magnitude and quality of sound from a relatively small enclosure and 6.5" woofer is a testament to MidiLand's design work.
We had a complaint similar to one with the S4/7100 system, and that's that we feel separate tweeters are really necessary. We realize that would come at increased cost, however we would offer that anyone seeking to purchase a system of this caliber likely won't mind paying a bit extra for the improved quality.
Perhaps the thing that impressed us the most about the S4/8200s (aside from the sound quality) was the construction quality. It's very clear that MidiLand has paid tremendous attention to detail, from the impressive subwoofer design, to the high-quality drivers, right down to the heavy-guage speaker wires. MidiLand constructs its own drivers and components, and the S4/8200 system is even hand-assembled to assure quality. The only part of the system MidiLand doesn't make itself is the ADS-2000 decoder.
