The three editors were totally free in choosing the drivers:
The three loudspeakers were then named after the initials of the originators.
Excerpt of the review by Christian Gather in Klang+Ton 6/2007: ... "My Mini CG was first in the row and immediately displayed the magic of the Eton drivers: precision and perfect balance. Well, that was to be expected, I had chosen the Eton drivers for a good reason. Connecting the Mini TS Scan Speak drivers revealed some interesting results. The sound was also smooth and well balanced. . Due to a slightly more fluid and relaxed bass the TS even narrowly beats my CG. But I hit back with razor-sharp precision: the ER4 AMT places the plucking of guitar strings right in middle of the room. The Scandinavian equipped Mini HB counters with a slightly smoother, more fluid and more musical performance."
... "Also the ceramic diaphragms of the Thiel equipped Mini TS are quite capable
of showing tremendous precision and came close to my CG, but was just a notch
better in resolving details. On the other hand the TS scores with a pleasant,
unspectacular and relaxed presentation resulting in even less listening fatigue.
A wealth of information is reproduced almost hands down, with pleasant emotional
balance. The TS also narrowly beats the CG with a slightly more solid bass,
but shows some considerable limitations in power handling due to the soft
suspension of the driver. The volume is certainly adequate for normal operation
but due to the lack of a progressive suspension the driver excursion could
become quite extreme, causing beads of sweat on the operator's forehead. But
as long as the TS doesn't suffer the final blow this speaker shows without
doubt the best all-round qualities and lands up between the extremely precise
CG and the fluid and musical HB. "
