NAD 801 Loudspeakers

I ended up with a pair of these speakers and reading the review from the May 1994 Hi-Fi Choice I thought they would sound rubbish and I was right. There was no bass to speak of and what there was was muddled. The bass speaker had a decent magnet on it, so why? Well, the box is small which is the main limiting factor and it is sealed. I decided to see if adding a port would improve things and open the sound up. Adding one to suit the size of the box was quite easy and proved to be a great improvement especially with the speakers near the wall, the bass extension is really noticeable. Comparing these with a pair of Mission 760i, the mid is clearer and the bass is as good if not better.
