Total Eclipse for total enlightenment

Eclipse has producing some miniature miracles for a good number of years, and their time alignment system has been well documented and very much heralded. Now, the introduction of the new TD307 mkII has raised the stakes considerably on the competition.

Stunning good looks and a choice of colours - Gloss Black, Gloss White and Silver - plus an amazingly clever mounting system making it easy to mount them on a shelf, the wall or the ceiling. These points alone make this speaker a winner. But, that would be completely missing the most important feature. Their sound quality.

For those of you who want a little less of the "throw everything at the listener but the kitchen sink" brigade, then the far more open and cultured sound of the Eclipse speakers will certainly appeal. Gone is that over the top tizzieness presented by many fashionable brands. Instead you'll find nothing but open, dynamic and a completely finished sound quality. There's no rough edges in this system. Clarity of voices, great reproduction of rear images and faithful steering of Dolby Digital and DTS sources really set these apart from the norm.

Oh and did we mention that they look fabulous?
