Fostex speakers came to us almost by accident. I was on the lookout for an inexpensive speaker whose size was in between our top-selling Audioengine A5+ and A2 speakers, but I hadn't come across anything I liked. I was strolling through the NAMM show, where Fostex speakers were being used to amplify a Nord piano at one of the displays. When I said, "Those are some pretty incredible little speakers," my Fostex rep said, "We have the entire line". I placed an order the next day. They really are that good.
