I have a pair of original Neat Petites. My first real HiFi loudspeaker that I bought new. I used them with a Naim Nait and Meridian CD player - all of which I still have (I must have bought them 25 years ago).stereoman said:
Have heard the Motive SX2's some time ago and if I remember correctly they sounded good but a bit lost in the size of the room used for audition. Good in a small to medium room I guess. Very good build quality was very apparent.stereoman said:
I've not heard any Neats before, although they do come with reps. As with all speakers it'll depend on your amp... and what speakers do you use at the moment? I've noticed Leema Xeros on your avatar.stereoman said:
Yes, with my second system Leema Xero with Cyrus 8vs. I also used many different speakers before and can say that even when you have a good amp , it won't help. Leema Xero are the first speakers that surprised me completely with their sound. From the first second you can hear how well engineered the sound is because their frequence range is extremely good exposed and very detailed. More like a competent studio monitor. I've been thinking about buying bigger Xone but I know there might be also other similar good ones within the price range. Anyway, Neat seem appealing too. But do not know if they sound so good...plastic penguin said:I've not heard any Neats before, although they do come with reps.

And a very good one it is.Pedro said:I gave myself a xmas gift and bought a pair of Motive SX2s. They're a very good match with my Naim Nait 5si and CD5si. I have them in a living room around 16 ou 17 square meters and they really fit that space both asthetically and sound wise.
The SX2s play very well all kinds of different music genres. Positioning is easy, like Timo said. I really like the separation between instruments, the soundstage and their musicality. If you're looking for speakers with really large scale and massive bass you should look elsewhere.
The Iotas are very good speakers too. People looking for small speakers should demo these.
I'm very curious about the Iota Alphas, really tiny (around 45 ou 46cm tall) and weird looking speakers.
