[...] The Columa 200 5.1 Set M won us over with its fresh, contemporary look - [...] The loudspeakers’ depth of just 7.7 cm is an excellent feature that allows these Berlin “Towers of good sound” to blend in well with modern flat screen TVs. Both the satellites in the back and the identically constructed centre can be fastened to the wall. Mounts for this purpose can be found on the back. [...]
The [...] column loudspeakers are constructed as sealed two way systems with double midrange drivers. [...] The 19 mm tweeter is flanked by two 70 mm midbass drivers. [...] All of the drivers have a cellulose membrane. The total internal volume of the MDF enclosure is around 8.4 liters. The look is as pleasant as with the other components. [...]
The [subwoofer] is equipped with a 160 mm bass driver with a coated cellulose membrane as well as an integrated [...] 100 watt amplifier. It can play from 43 to 200 Hz with a maximum 106DB/1m and operates according to a bass reflex principle. The MDF enclosure [...] blends in with the rest of the set. [...] The standby power mode operates at just 0.4 watts. [...]
The powerful, substantial bass has an impressive sound. [It] sounds clear, powerful, and dynamic even with elevated levels. That a € 400 loudspeaker set is behind this performance cannot be at all discerned. One would guess that the Columa 200 costs much more and even those who know a thing or two about [audio], would never think that they’re dealing with an inexpensive bargain with this type of music and source material [playback]. [...]
The Columa 200 again proves that it’s able to bring notably more sound into the living room for very little money than many expensive systems, especially soundbars or active TV louspeakers. [...]Conclusion
For a low price, the Columa 200 5.1 Set M combines a chic look, quite [...] good workmanship, and a formidable sound quality. The column/satellite system is impressive in every regard, specially when serving as the acoustic middle point of a contemporary living room. [M]any [...] will be very happy with the sound and look of this slender system.
