NICE BASS! "Prior to this we have tested and enjoyed the Arendal Sound 1723-series. First, they conquered Norway, then Scandinavia and later Europe. Here comes the next series, 1961. We have tested both subwoofers. By: Magnus Fredholm. Arendal Sound have told us that 1961 is going to be cheaper than 1723 and 1961 will also [...]
Power from Arendal Sure, I am aware that I am taking a chance with such a heading, but after all these speakers do come from Arendal... Let me firstly say that Arendal 1723 Bookshelf S represent everything else than short minded knuckleheads. Here is enjoyment and tolerance all the way! Anyways I did not grab [...]
Recommended! By Steve Withers. "Dunkirk's explosions hit with a visceral LFE impact. The Subwoofer 1 attacks without overstaying its welcome" Verdict "Not as small as its name suggests, this superbly-built 5.1 system can be driven hard to deliver a dynamic and enjoyable performance." Read the full original review here.
The Little Giant! Conclusion Sure, I have certainly heard even better tripod speakers than these models form Arendal Sound. Both with even better refinement and with slightly better dynamics. But they cost more, usually a great deal more. Because with these latest creations, Arendal Sound has managed to create a tripod speaker that has about as good sound as Big Brother [...]

EXCELLENT! The Norwegian brand Arendal already caused quite a furore with high-performance THX-licensed speaker systems. The Arendal 1723 systems are the first choice for ambitious home cinemas thanks to their dynamics, tight sound, low-distortion and unsurpassed finish. In our current issue, we line up the smallest out of four Arendal Subwoofers for a review as [...]
Excellent value! By Jamie Biesemans. Arendal's speakers are well suited for building a dedicated home theater. People looking for a good price-quality ratio should without a doubt consider the Norwegian brand’s offering. You do need to have the room for larger speakers, as even the 'compact' S versions are still quite large. The speakers are a bit too massive [...]
Fun worth of the weight The heaviest model of Norwegian Arendal's speaker lineup, 1723 Tower THX, is full about audial fun worth of every kilogram of it's mass. Even though it looks quite an ogre, deep down it's surprisingly eloquent speaker. Keeping this in mind, the model's price tag of 3 000 euros doesn't seem [...]
