There’s no denying that the
Luna 2s are a beautifully designed 2.0 audio system and that the minimalist
design would look perfect on a modern desk next to an aluminium-encased laptop
such as a MacBook Pro. On the downside, I didn’t feel that the performance was
remarkable enough to warrant the high price. Sure the Class-D amplifier-based
speakers are loud (30W RMS) and clear, but I thought they lacked warmth and
punch - especially compare to my beloved Axiom Audiobytes.
The speakers also had sporadic bouts of ‘popping’ as I switched between desktop
applications and browsed the Web. At this price level, this just isn’t acceptable.
Design enthusiasts will fall in love with the high-quality finish,
touch-sensitive controls and funky lighting, but audio and technical buffs will
ultimately be left wanting more - especially those who, like me, crave thumping
bass levels. @ ITreviewed
