� The Baby Grand is a beautiful speaker to behold and listen to. The fit and finish is first rate and its compact size is sure to make significant others everywhere jump for joy. The Baby Grand is not a speaker you'll want to try and hide from view.
� The Baby Grand's sound from the bass on up through the treble is so seamless and smooth. It's soothing, like ordering up a spa day for your ear canals.
� The Baby Grand is every bit a high end or upscale loudspeaker that, unlike the competition, can be driven beautifully with a wider range of equipment such as a home theater receiver. My first listen to the Baby Grands was through a 100-watt Denon receiver and I thought, who could argue with this setup?
� While the Baby Grand's bass performance is very good and rich with texture and detail it doesn't go quite low enough for today's Dolby TrueHD or DTS Master Audio soundtracks. You'll want to mate the Baby Grand to a capable subwoofer or two for true full range performance.
� The Baby Grands do lack a bit of overall spank even when played back at high volumes. They can come off as a little too polite even when the mood calls for something a bit naughty.
For less than $4,500 a pair (depending on finish) the Beethoven Baby Grand loudspeaker from Vienna Acoustics is a remarkable speaker, and one that I feel is often overlooked. The $3,500-$5,000 a pair sector of the loudspeaker world is a competitive and crowded arena to play in but I believe the Baby Grands are standouts in their class even if they won't necessarily tell you themselves. If you're in the market for a quality built, beautifully finished, smooth, fairly relaxed sounding speaker that you can come home to and simply listen to without hassle or drama and forget about your day then I can think of few that do it better than the Beethoven Baby Grand from Vienna Acoustics.
