Boston Acoustics is set to bring back their highly popular A Series Hi Fi kit as demand for two channel sound makes a return.Back the early 1980s the Boston Acoustics A 40 and A 60 were highly popular for people on a budget but wanted great sound. The two new models come in a bookshelf model and a floor model.

The new A26 bookshelf model which is 33 centimetres by 20.95cm X 26.67 centimetres. According to Twice magazine who have seen the speakers, the bass was punchy and deep, dynamics were wide open, and the treble was clear. Female vocals sounded especially natural.
They claimed that the new A 360 towers, produced deep bass, and played louder, but the same sound signature was evident over both speakers.
The A Series also includes a smaller tower, the A 250; two smaller bookshelf models, the A 25 and the A 23 ; and the A 225C center-channel speaker. A 5.1-channel satellite-subwoofer package, the A 2310, completes the line.
Twice said that the build quality was exceptional for speakers in the sub $1,000 price class, and the cabinets’ high-gloss, scratch-resistant finishes with textured top panels and magnetically attached grilles looked great. Vertical and horizontal internal braces reduce cabinet resonances for enhanced audio quality, and all the speakers feature newly developed ceramic and glass fiber polymer woofer cones that allow for higher speed, reduced distortion, and improved sensitivity.
The crossover components in all A Series models incorporate low-loss film capacitors, and low-distortion laminated silicon steel cores for the inductors in all critical areas, and five-way gold-plated binding posts. The speakers also use a single 1-inch Kortec soft-dome tweeter.
Two new powered subwoofers, the 300-watt ASW 650 and the 150-watt ASW 250, are also available.
