„Who said hi-fi must be expensive?” –Indiana Line Tesi 561 test report on the online magazine AFDigitale
There are many ways to live and revive Hi-Fi and they are not necessarily expensive ways, on the contrary. This setup is a tangible demonstration of this.
The journalist was literally happy to test a speaker of a brand that anyone in Italy involved in hifi, for any reason, have heard of, sooner or later, and points the fact that even now that the ownership of the Company is abroad, the commercial team and the design and development team are still the same of the last decades.
After looking through all the technical features of this speaker, there comes the listening test:
„These Tesi 561 pull out a nice extended bass quite articulate with Hotel California by the Eagles, in the famous live rendition. The low register is also well reproduced, thanks also to the good work done by the power supply of the Rotel A11 Tribute. The mid-range is “powerful”, full and the male voices are reproduced being put in the foreground. The high range is a bit “against the trend” compared to many modern competitors, and is smoothed at the higher range of bandwidth. For the above we believe that the Rotel, with its extremely linear behaviour is an excellent companion”.
After many tests, these other parameters were enlightened:
„A parameter on which the Indiana Line Tesi 561 tick a praise is the scenic reconstruction and with the reproduction of the great orchestra all the various instruments are easily placed. Since the low range is extended and well articulated we decided to distance them further from the wall and the scene improves further: excellent test. We abandon ourselves to Daft Punk and Depeche Mode, which we have recently seen live and therefore with an ear that lives of a still vivid memory. We must say that with very rhythmic genres this pairing sounds decidedly strong, more than the rules of good neighbourhood would allow”.
Tesi 561 is the perfect all-rounder:
„The response in the environment is very linear, we played with Dirac and we had further proof of this. The designer of these speakers has thought about the needs of those who must place them at home without being able to optimize the environment and positioning, offering a practically plug & play product”.
„After a series of consultations we came to the conclusion that this combination is an excellent starting point for those who are passionate about this world or for those looking for a definitive solution that does not heavily impact their wallets”.
