Build and finish:
This is the second set of speakers from Ophidian that I have had the honour of reviewing.
They are extremely well constructed, using premium materials.
The veneer is flawless and finished beautifully.
Drivers are mounted just right and the proportions look really pleasing to the eye.
They are heavier than they appear and will sit quite comfortably and securely on speaker stands.
Unlike the Minimo 2 I found the Mojo 2 more forgiving when it came to positioning.
I was able to have them at a far less aggressive angle.
For the majority of the review I had them set up on my shelving in my office, which I know is going to ruffle some feathers with some of my readers.
However, I found, even when up on my shelving, they still sounded fabulous and lost none of their punch or definition.
Not an ideal listening position I admit, but this is what I currently have to work with in this space.
I did also have them set up in my main system in the living room on speaker stands.
Soundstage is spacious and has a lot of depth.
Separation is on point with the Mojo 2’s creating a really nice 3D image, making the speakers essentially “disappear” within the listening space.
Mid bass and lows are most impressive, carrying a lot of heft, with texture and great definition. No need for a sub with these speakers!
Mids are forward and natural. Very smooth with vocals and acoustic pieces.
Highs shine with crystal clear clarity, speed and ultra sharp detail.
For £1,200 you’re getting a lot of speaker in a compact package.
They’re ideal as a nearfield monitor, bookshelf speaker and placed in a larger room in a larger system.
They’re easy to drive and have a very full bodied, lively personality which matches a varied style of music.
The Mojo 2 impressed me so much, they’re in my top 5 selection of potential candidates for my permanent office system!
As always, I’d like to send a massive thank you to all of my readers, contributors and sponsors.
All of you make what do worthwhile!
