The month I spent with JM Reynaud's Duet monitors represented my second encounter with the wares of this well-regarded French loudspeaker manufacturer. In May of 2006, I reviewed both the stand-mount Twin Signatures and the floor-standing Cantabile Signatures for Positive Feedback Online. While my experience with those two speakers was slightly variable—I really liked the Twins, and found the Cantabiles also impressive but very sensitive to partnering amplification—what I said about Reynaud speakers in general three years ago still holds true today.

Specifically, my thoughts then and now are: why the heck aren't these speakers better known in the USA? Or at least better known among American audiophiles? Bob Neill, the U.S. distributor for Reynaud speakers (and classical music reviewer for PFO) has advocated tirelessly and persuasively on behalf of the brand, but by his own account it's been an uphill battle.

Though the audiophile market is super-saturated with more companies and products than any person could totally keep up with, the relative neglect of Reynaud's speakers still puzzles me. Why? Because the Reynaud line would seem, to me at least, to offer the total 'loudspeaker' package to music listeners. They're exceptionally good-looking. They are, among high-performance speakers, quite reasonably priced. And many of their models offer big sound in a relatively small package—that is to say, impressive bass response with a small footprint, something which a lot of speakers these days try to do but don't do nearly so well.

Above all, however, is the sound. Reynaud speakers, at their best and with sympathetic associated equipment, are at once highly truthful to the source and totally unique. Put another way, while they deliver many of the standard ideals of high-fidelity design, they do so in a way I've not heard any other speakers quite manage. As I stressed in my first review, they are the most "live"-sounding speakers in my experience, offering an up-close perspective with the kind of presence and immediacy that are among the chief pleasures of in-person performance. In audiophile terms, they are fast, and when listening to them, you'll often want to move your feet. But their speed an...
