The Nico EVOlution represents the entry level into the Artisan Series - a standmount model with a level of performance rivalling many floorstanding models.

The Nico EVOlution is part of the Artisan Series, a range that received a completely redesigned cabinet, port system, and internal bracing, curtesy of the magnificent Viginti model. Along with improved crossover and drivers, elevated the current Artisan range to new heights of sound reproduction.

A metal, three-legged protector for the 1" soft dome tweeter can be removed if preferable, especially if used with the fabric grilles provided.

The 6" mid/bass driver isn't 'over-damped' like some higher end loudspeakers, so the Nicos are able to produce a very responsive, fast, detailed bass response that can rival much more expensive loudspeakers. This gives them a lively, energetic sound that easily holds your attention, but never becomes tiring.

At the rear, a slot port system extends bass response down to 38Hz (anechoic), and avoids the negative issues that can plague conventional circular ports, including allowing them to sit much closer to walls and still produce an even bass response - many loudspeakers around this price point need oodles of space to work well - not so the Nicos.

Another benefit over similarly priced competitors is their nice easy 8ohm (nominal) loading that gives them a much wider compatibility with more amplifiers. 

 

The Nico isn't an imposing loudspeaker, especially for its price range, being only 8.25" wide, and their gently 'arched' top go quite some way to remove the typical box look of many loudspeakers. 

The carbon fibre rear panel hosts a single set of rhodium binding posts.
