„Rather Than 'Intel inside' these boxes are accompanied by an invisible sticker 'IQ inside' badge...How much belongs on this chip shoulder...Perfectly balanced sound, high intelligibility at low-to-medium levels, sufficient bass reach to complete....I really would be very happy to have Vintage Oslo at my desktop”

„zakręciłem się słuchając Kon-Tiki i dostałem gęsiej skórki słuchając poza programem duetu Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman...grają po prostu wybornie...Vintage Oslo, to dźwiękowo propozycja wybitna. To kolumny grające tak dobrze, że zapominamy, że to tylko maleńkie, szerokopasmowe głośniczki w niewielkich obudowach..” ( Highfidelity, lipiec 2020, numer 195) http://www.highfidelity.pl/@main-3740&lang=
