Buchardt S400 Mk2 Speakers Thrill!

Buchardt Audio say they are a Danish Loudspeaker brand who want to make good HiFi at affordable prices and their direct selling model embodies and affirms this. No dealers or distributors means product price can be lower to achieve the same margin.

That’s where I come in because having a model involving less parties can be a lot easier, not to mention an understanding of how a reviewer works and how a brand does too. Also, in a post Covid world, people are willing to trust those who can access products and have a considered opinion about them, are more willing to accept opinions where shop demos can be frustrated by the inability to compare different raved about products in the same shop, and so on.

The model offered by Buchardt Audio requires a good customer service model, and testament to this is the number of people appraising the brand on this score at their Facebook page – here. But more than this, a good returns policy where no Restocking fees are charged. These are the fees charged on the return of products simply for returns sake, which in European counties is outlawed by EU distance selling legislation. The 14 day period to cancel orders with such legislation is moot with Buchardt Audio – since a 45 day return period is offered and any returns only deal with postage costs (that don’t form part of the initial free P&P). These are NOT restocking fees!

Anyway, with my immutable high production values I tackle Buchardt’s S400 Mk 2’s in my video laced with a James Bond theme. They are compared to Monitor Audio Gold 100’s and KEF’s LS50 Meta speakers.
