Cambridge Audio's new Aero-series speakers are affordable and interesting. The core speakers in the line are the Aero 2 bookshelf model and the Aero 6 floorstander, which sell in the United States for $549 and $1099 per pair, respectively. Fleshing out the Aero line are the 5 center-channel ($449), 3 surround ($549 per pair), and 9 subwoofer ($899).
The 2 and the 5 are both two-way designs that use a 2.25" Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR), which has very high bandwidth: 250Hz to 22kHz. The wide bandwidth allows for a very low crossover point to the single 6.5" woofer in the 2 and the dual 6.5" woofers in the 6, which is the subject of the gallery below. In fact, the folks at Cambridge Audio don't call the woofers "woofers"; they call them "subwoofers," presumably because they handle only low bass. All models are available in Black or Dark Walnut vinyl-veneer finishes that look so authentic, you'd swear they're real wood.
We've got to get some of these in for review!
