Our top siren in our curated range is a hybrid in personality, and in composition of drivers. Unprecedented sweet voice lures you in while the sub-bass dives deep and clean in pitch, raining drums like in quick succession without delaying a beat. Strings climb octaves perfectly against dark spaces between the notes like peering endlessly into a pitch black sky full of stars.
Owners of the CE5 struggle to find replacements. Call it V or U shaped but there's nothing like this Hyla legend that propelled, fast-track onto our Hall of Fame.
Some felt vocals were recessed but could not leave it behind, and chose to add the Audio-Genetic's QC24 or Acoustune's SPC cables with it.
The CE-5 was succeeded by the TE-5B and TE-5T, and holds a special place with all due respect to the reigning flagship Sarda, the queen who combined all of your favourite things so you won't have to choose.
