Reviews & Awards
"a dazzling display from a computer-based system. The Amphion Ion+ in conjunction with a NuForce amplifier produced a sound via a MacBook Pro that had me in a state of awe."
"Whenever I get the chance to hear something as special as Trav'lin Light on system as modest as the above and it reproduces Joe Williams as big as he sounds, well you can say you won me over. "
"High-end audio really doesn't have to cost much. Amphion and NuForce can prove it!"
Clement Perry, www.stereotimes.com
"Ion+ is essentially a reference-grade professional monitor in a decorator-friendly enclosure. In fact, the Ion+ is used by many famous professional recording and mastering engineers. From the brief audition, I could hear why; the Ion+ had an accurate tonal balance and high resolution of detail without sounding etched or clinical the way that many professional monitors can."
Robert Harley, www.theabsolutesound.com

"This is a €999 mini monitor with more linear snappy bass than ought to be legal"
"phenomenal - true show-me-the-money high-end."
"It's ultimately about integration; how waveguide and crossover mesh to practically disappear. That throws open the window more. The most incontrovertible proof for that comes from buy-in volume. To fully buy into this sound takes lower levels. The satisfaction threshold where 'one hears everything' has come down. That's the strongest evidence for higher resolution I know"
"greater transparency as a means to achieving closer musical intimacy."
"refined advanced speaker. And a real looker. That adds up to winning."
"amongst the small speakers I have hosted in my own four walls, the Ion+ factors at the very top."
"for the desktop nearfield it strikes me as the absolutely perfect combination of size, performance and price. I've been ionized!"
Srajan Ebaen, 6moons.com
"Ion+ represents what we believe the future will look like. It is suitable for conventional systems, the desktop and demanding recording studios. Ion+ digs deep into the heart of the music regardless of whether you are critically mixing or fine-tuning music in the studio or leisurely enjoying it at home."
