HiFi Knights – S400

On the outside, Buchardt Audio S400 might be viewed as yet another competitively priced bookshelf affair of visually minimalist if not rather regular sort, and rightfully so. It purposely was designed as a safely modest domesticated looker to reach as broad audience as possible. Yet upon closer inspection it becomes apparent how much serious engineering work and unorthodox touches went into it. Today’s is not a case of homebrewed DIY, but highly advanced execution based on top shelf simulations and utmost effective passive plot, as uncommon as it is clever. Only a team of high level audio specialists could’ve come up with such a product, whereas Buchardt Audio’s business model based on direct sales made its sticker enjoyably light.
