#12 - Small speakers
Sometimes we want steak, other times only sushi will do. So it goes with loudspeakers: we might lust for (full-range) floorstanders but either our room's acoustics and/or our aesthetic sensibilities demand standmount standmounts.

With Jeff Dorgay of TONEAudio.

With Jeff Dorgay of TONEAudio. On the final day of Munich High-End 2018, TONEAudio's Jeff Dorgay joined John Darko for breakfast to chat about the world's greatest audio show.
