Perlisten S5t

For those who have had the opportunity to hear and or own the S5t I am very interested in your impressions/opinions. 
Thank you.

I listened to the 7st the same day I listened to Focal Kanta 2, Sopra 2 and Magico A3.  No offense to the owners here but they were 4 out of 4….I’m starting to wonder if where you listen to a speaker in the rotation makes a difference in perception.  

@letitbe1306 FWIW I brought a musician friend with me to audition primarily the Focal lines, but we were both blown away by Magico A3….might be a worthy addition to your list. They are better looking in person than they are in pics.  


who cares if they're made in China as long as the quality is there, doesn't matter whether they're made in Denmark China or lower slobovia, The monitor audio platinum Gen 2 are phenomenal sounding and the build quality is world class they have 11 layers of hand polished piano locker on them and it takes 144 hours to make each cabinet, do you not think they have good trades people in China? Good trades people are everywhere, and I do like the X3 there a great speaker for $11,000 but I still think that the monitor audio platinum ll and lll are better.


sorry buddy but you're wrong on that one I even heard the owner saying that the cabinets of the X3 were made in China, before you go flapping your gums maybe you should get your facts straight.

With all do respect, no one can reliable judge the Perlisten S7t until you’ve taken the time to set it up properly in your own room. This is true for most speakers but especially the S7t. Tiny, painstaking adjustments of the kind that dealers will simply not bother doing will make or break the sound of this speaker. Perlisten might claim they are easy to set up. Not true, IME. Perhaps for adequate sound, but who here is into this hobby for adequate? Take the time to nail the set up and they are excellent.

Every speaker MFR says this:

I met the Perlisten guys at Axpona. They seemed to indicate that these speakers were designed to be some of the most forgiving speakers w.r.t placement/room deficiencies in comparison to all the competitor offerings.
