Hi all I was lucky enough to get a home demo of the Contrast Audio Model One bookshelf speaker.
Firstly the Bookshelf retails at $2,900, and is relatively small in size, but it does pack a punch!
If I was to describe these speakers in the shortest possible way I would say "Agile, punchy, neutral and Accurate". At this price point I was very impressed. They are awesome for music that is dynamic and can handle even the most hectic fast paced metal music, whilst at the same time still sounding great with simple acoustic musical pieces.
If you have a budget of >$3k and are looking for a bookshelf or compact speaker, this should be high up on your audition list and up for serious consideration. In my extensive auditioning of speakers I found them to go toe to toe with some options considerably more expensive from the likes of Dynaudio and others.
Simply put, if you want an agile, dynamic and accurate performing bookshelf, check our the Contrast Audio Model One.
PS: Reach out to them , they are lovely and helpful people and can be found here on the forums
