Here's what industry expert Nick Whetstone at TNT-audio.com is saying about Trends SA-10 Speakers:
"… I picked up on was the mid-range clarity. Vocals are remarkably clear and natural (Patricia Barber 'My Girl'). It made it very easy to identify a singer. And the sound of fingers clicking in the background was portrayed quite realistically on the same track. On the introduction to 'War of the Worlds' Richard Burton's voice was very 'authentic', and the echo was easily discerned too. Every detail in good recordings was easy to pick out without ever being too prominent. The top end goes about as far as I would want it to. In other words it brings out the detail without going as far as sounding unpleasant…."
…I also liked how the system kept different details well separated and easy to discern. For instance on Paul Simon's 'Diamonds On The Sole's Of Her Shoes' all the separate backing voices were easy to hear. On Dadawa's 'The Turning Scripture' every element form the tiny bell sounds to the cacophony of Tibetan horns was easily identifiable. Everything was clear even with the volume turned high…
“Over all, the SA-10's played everything well, and certainly made listening very enjoyable…. Summing up, the SA-10's are very good small speakers: detailed, transparent, fast, and punchy….
“But don't let the CQ-500 practicality issue detract from the fact that the SA-10's sound great, work very well with the rest of the Trends system, and look rather nice too. I always conclude my auditioning process by asking myself if I could live with whatever I am reviewing, or rather would I want to. In this case my answer was yes, if I was confined to a smaller listening room and had this Trends system, I would certainly enjoy my music without constantly wishing for something 'better'. On the other hand, again being brutally honest, I felt that the Trends system is so good that it almost deserves a larger speaker….
…I would say that once again they have done an excellent job with the SA-10's. So for smaller listening rooms, I give the SA-10's a strong recommendation. Trends have done it again, and completed a micro hi-fi system, at a reasonable cost, that truly does deserve the audiophile tag.”
