Gamut M5 Floor Stander at great price
The speakers are a 2½-way bi-wire able floor standing speaker employing two 7″ woofers and a Scan-Speak Super Revelator tweeter in a bass reflex enclosure.
The speakers are moderately easy to drive, with nominal 4 ohm impedance and 90.5 db efficiency, but they will respond best to a high current amp around the 200 watts in order to get the most out of them.
Acoustically they are right in line with the sound footprint Gamut is famous for: natural, balanced sound across the full sound spectrum, with a large open soundstage. Well rounded bass; rich mid range, and natural high end. Great detail but never bright or harsh. Musical subtleties like a brushed drum or the long sustain on acoustic guitar decay are balanced with the ability to handle bombastic orchestra dynamics, bass drum and electric instrument attacks with ease. Adjustable isolation feet allow for tilting in to get the best sound in various sitting arrangements. Slightly toed in, the speakers disappear and sound fills the room.
Finished in black satin the speakers are very attractive, with slim lines diminishing to the back; not overly large; they have high WAF.

Wells Majestic Integrated 150 watts/ch with Remote
Our new integrated amplifier, the Majestic, makes no compromises. Our objective at Wells Audio is to build the very best sounding audio equipment in the world, despite cost or design limitations. The Majestic may be the best example of that philosophy to date. At a robust 150 watts into 8 ohms and vanishingly low distortion and noise levels, the Majestic embodies the full, quiet, detailed, sweet and rich sound that is the hallmark of our success. We believe that the Majestic is not only the best performing integrated amplifier at or near its price point on the market, but that it competes with some of the best and expensive equipment in the world.
The Majestic features 5 inputs (one pair XLR), a beautiful volumeter, and a remote control for muting or adjusting your volume. It’s well-equipped, but is designed more like a Bowie knife than a Swiss army knife–sleek and functional. The Majestic is that rare integrated amplifier that can take its place at the heart of a truly high-end audio system, but do it without giving up the necessary power and performance that is the case with most integrated amps. The Majestic is available in anodized black and in silver-grey (pictured above). Audition yours today. We think that the only things you’ll find missing are the extra boxes, cables and complexity.
