Car Audio magazine test review in Russia
High frequencies are smooth and detailed. The midrange is elaborate. With a good quality back sound stage. The tone color is very natural throughout the band width. The system is fit for rendering acoustic and electronic music alike.
The crossover is a marvel of circuit engineering – a 24dB “Elliptic Transient Optimized” deliver a well balanced sound. In A Nut Shell... Speakers for the sophisticated listener.

“Leader” Best In Test.
The Reference Speaker!
"When testing the HD-62, I have come to the conclusion that this is the best speaker we have ever tested, so far as to put it up as a reference speaker to all other speakers we test."

CDT HD-62 wins the gold!
Among the top group of three closely ranked finalists in this test, the CDT HD-62 wins the gold because, when mounted in the doors, it simply sounded the best. It combined the superb octave-to-octave balance of the Altecs with the magnificent transparency and resolution of the Boston's and the Polk's.
When describing the sound of the HD-62 set, everything I say is actually about the beauty of the recordings - a golden tenor voice singing Handel, the seductively intimate sound of Jennifer Warnes and her (clearly audible) backup singers, the rich tone of a saxophone, the very different textures of a bass fiddle alternately bowed and plucked, the variety of instrumental tones in a symphony orchestra or a well-played synthesizer, the crisp impact of percussion, and the startling power of a trumpet call.
The trouble with speakers like the HD-62 set is that their wonderful sound makes me late for appointments; when I arrive at my destination, I don't want to get out of my car.
