Excerpt of the review by K+T:

... "Some of us who work on texts, drawings or balance sheets like to seclude themselves from the world around us. That way we are able to concentrate better on what we are doing and during a pause of reflection we just enjoy the relaxing sound of music. The CT 222 system is more than adequate for this purpose. Vocals are reproduced without any harshness, bass is tight and clearly structured, the tops are entirely without aggression. Unlike some other sound systems this one enables us, at the same volume, to either work or listen without sacrificing either of them. Distinct bass runs and percussion coming from the Patricia Barber CD "Companion", often used for listening tests, enthralled the listeners just as the wild drum beating and bongo drumming on the eight minute piece "Like JT". The dynamic of the guitar solo and the tonal balance of the vocals on "Let It Rain" were also convincing. ...
