CES 2007

"Best Sound of the Show"

Hansen Audio THE EMPEROR
January 2007


"I was most impressed with the Hansen EMPEROR, a less expensive version of the mighty KINGs, driven by CAT electronics and an AudioAero Prestige CD player."

"I was most struck by the way the large speakers completely -- and I do mean completely -- disappeared. This is a difficult feat for 3-ways to pull off, but these Hansens are coherent to perfection. Overall timbres were the most complete and realistic I heard at the show, and rhythms were likewise admirable. Vocals were exceedingly natural as well, with no grit or glare. Most Impressive."
