BG corp have been known to produce some high quality ribbon-based product. This pair is no exception. Noted that the Z-7 have the more sensitive and better Neo-3 tweeter (PDR). Size is very modest, so you can even place them around the desk as computer speakers.

Plus their speakers they offer life-time warranty, what other spks these days can say that.

For imaging Z-7 is harder to setup, since ribbon does have a narrower sweet spot than traditional spks, BUT once its there (I have it 9ft apart toe-in at 30-40 degree), the imaging is razor sharp and very consistent.

And then there is the High. WOW! chillingly good. My 100w jolida tube amp have them sing. Airy, spacious, all from this small package. Again, because of the pinpoint imaging, it enchance the high even better. Transiency is superb. Bottom line is, you probably have to spend more in traditional system to get the high this package deliver.

The mid is very accommodating, but abit lack the warm that I like in other spks. So try to have some tube in your signal chain to enchance it. Bass is more lacking, as I assume the 2x5.25 are not strong enough in this department. It's not bad, but if you want to watch saving private ryan with it, try adding a sub.

Overall, I'm very very surprise they haven't been more publicly known. They're fun, airy, with superb imaging, I'm gonna be very happy with them.
