Love the fit and finish of this speaker. Packaged well. Smaller than my previous speaker (Pioneer Andrew Jones) but definitely heftier and looks and sounds like a premium product.Humberto De Santiago
Perfect in quality and style. Fits superior in small rooms. With closed eyes u may think u sit in a way bigger setup.Philipp
Amazing performance to cost ratio. Filled a 13 X 25 room with sound. I would highly recommend using a subwoofer.satisfied
They are not small in sound by any standards. If you are on a budget give these a shot, and I don't think you will be disappointed unless you just want your speakers to look big.Kush Arora

I needed a small speaker on my desktop, and this fits the bill. Nothing sticks out when it comes to quality.Joseph Lee
This is a mini monster! My intended use for these bookshelves was and is as back surrounds in a dedicated home cinema, however, during break-in they have replaced my living room tower speakers. Together with a subwoofer they present a very engaging, complete and enjoyable sound! Don’t hesitate to buy (and try) these diamonds.Stefan Bruér
Small Speaker great Sound!Harald Mielke
Lots of sound for the money packed in a relatively small cabinet.Jarle K. Jørgensen
Definite improvement over my existing speakers. Due to limited space and set up, my former speakers did not work. The 1961 bookshelf speakers did an outstanding job filling in and made a substantial improvement in my 2.1 setup. Excellent timbre and soundstage. Would highly recommend.John Niemiec

1961 Bookshelf features our custom-built waveguide tweeter and 5.5” woofer, that are shared throughout the 1961 series. Just like the Monitor and Tower speakers, the Bookshelf is made to be equally at home in a home theatre environment and a pure music setup. The materials, drivers and finish are all what you would expect from an Arendal Sound product. Premium grade.
Frequency response does not reflect maximum output but shows its true response in a anechoic chamber. Typically you will see an elevated response in the bass response below 40Hz in room due to room gain, which can add around 6dB pr. octave under 40Hz depending on the size of your room.
The charts display frequency response measured at different angles, the sum of which is referred to as power response. Much scientific research has been undertaken on this subject and a linear power response has proven a substantial impact on the overall sound, because the frequency response is more even in all directions. This means an Arendal Sound speaker will be more tolerant of differences in room shape, size, construction and materials.
The impedance charts are electrical measurements of the loudspeaker’s resistance vs frequency.
