In the ultra-high-priced TAD line, the new E1 (right) is considered a budget model even though it costs $29,800/pair. It borrows some of the technology used in TAD’s acclaimed Reference One (left). A concentrically mounted beryllium tweeter sits inside a magnesium midrange driver. Dual 7-inch woofers made from a five-layer Aramid fiber sandwich pump out the lows. The crossover is built into the base. The sound was mind-blowing when designer Andrew Jones played singer Bill Contos’ rendition of “How Long Has This Been Going On?”
