piotto's review"I recommend them"

Infinity Reference 81 MkII
* How long have you been using the product?
It's been 10 years now, I bought them new.

* Which feature do you like the most / the least?

* The most: Their value for money, the audio quality and their overall performance. I used them together with a Pioneer amp for some time, the sound lacked some detail, the highs were a bit blurry. But after hearing them with a Nad T761 amp, everything leveled out, the reproduction is much more linear, the highs are less aggressive, it's really good! I compared them to the B&W Preference 5, and the infinity hold up really well! But I don't think they are in the same category.

* The cons: No dual connection possibility (to split the lows form the rest) for bi-amplification or at least a fiber optic connector.

* Did you try any other models before buying the product?
Hi-fi: B&W Preference 5, B&W DM 603 S2, Technics
PA: Mackie SRM450, JBL 125 and others...

* How would you rate the product's value for money?
Very good, even after 10 years, they are still holding up. I think they are a great option.

* Based on your experience, would you buy this product again? ...
No, I would get a pair of new B&W, but they are not at the same price point, though.

Infinity Reference 81 MkII
How long have you been using the product?
Almost two years.
Did you try any other models before buying this one?
jamo, technics, warfedale etc. nothing too high-end.

I'm more than satisfied with them.

Which feature do you like the most / the least?

The most
Sound quality, be it in the low end, the mids or the highs, everything is very well translated even at high levels, I can use them as reference for all other speakers that I've tested, and I think they are perfect (although I've never tried speakers costing more than $1000...)

The least
Hmmm...I have to think real hard. Maybe the veneer, but it's not that important anyway.
How would you rate the product's value for money?
I bought them used for $150, so it's hard to do any better, they are simply perfect.
Based on your experience, would you buy this product again? ...
Without hesitation. Infinity / harman kardon forever

I've owned them for 1 month.
Impeccable hi-fi reproduction, with present lows and excellent highs.
(as soon as I connected them I put on Mozart's requiem and... I couldn't stop listening until the last note!!!)
I didn't test too many other things before, except for some down-market jamo speakers.
These speakers sound wonderfully with my HC Yamaha (HTR6040) amp.
They are simply an excellent value for money, I bought them for $200 as part of an HC kit and I'm delighted.
Info taken from the web:
4 speakers - 3 way - 6 ohms
150 W (two 7" woofers, one 4" mid-range driver and one tweeter)
Efficiency: 90 dB
Frequency range: 50-20000 Hz
45 lbs

The veneer is a bit cheap, but it's just a detail, what's important is the sound!!!
