M4 comment:
Tonal neutrality, tight but extended bass and high resolution make Quadral Platinum M4 the stand-out choice.....

Test verdict:
I would save and buy the Quadral Platinum M4 which is the real find of this test. the M4 really does line up its ducks in a row. Listen to from slightly of axis it has a neutral overall tonal balance, extended but fleet of foot bass and sparkling treble, but it’s the way these are melded into a musically engaging whole that makes the M4 the winner of this test.
The big disappointment of this test was the Paradigm Studio 60 , it was the most expensive, but no speaker with so broad a hole in its mid-range output can expect to win a test against well designed product with its essentially flat output.
