Eminent Technology LFT-16 Speakers ($950) Review on Stereophile

Thursday, January 1, 2009

Stereophile has posted a review of the Eminent Technology LFT-16 bookshelf speakers ($950/pair). These have “retro-technoid looks” (photo) and consist of a “push-pull planar-magnetic tweeter and midrange unit” and a “6” plastic-cone woofer.”

Reviewer John Marks compared them to the Renaissance MLP-403.5 ($1,090/pair) and had this to say on the differences:

The Renaissance’s sound is a touch darker and definitely weightier. The LFT-16 has more clarity in the midrange and treble, and overall a brighter, faster, slightly lighter sound.

On balance, John concluded:

The Eminent Technology LFT-16 is a quirky but high-value loudspeaker: $$$ for outstanding value.

Check out the entire review, then take a look at John’s review of the Renaissance MLP-403.5 ($1,090/pair). Thanks for the reviews, John!
