Usher Dancer Mini Two Floor-Standing Speakers and BE-616 Center Channel Speaker

ARTICLE INDEX

Introduction

Usher Audio is a brand long known around the audiophile community for making speakers of stunningly good build quality and excellent sound for the price. Often mentioned in conversations with speakers costing multiples more, Usher has remained a more niche company, providing its speakers slightly under the radar. That under the radar reputation changed somewhat with their release of the highly regarded BE-718 bookshelf speaker, see the Secrets review: Usher Be-718 Bookshelf Speakers with Beryllium Tweeters, which garnered stellar reviews and multiple awards, which garnered stellar reviews and multiple awards. Despite being out for several years now, the 718's are still an incredibly popular choice for people looking for a high quality, moderately priced bookshelf system.

The Dancer Mini Two's represent an extension Usher's top of the line "Dancer" series into a more approachable price point. At $5000 MSRP, the Ushers bring the same build quality and characteristics as other floor-standing members of the Dancer family, to a more reasonable footprint and price. Matched with the BE-616 Center Channel, this system functions as a full front sound stage for multiple applications. Both of these speakers are incorporating Usher's new Diamond Tweeter, replacing the well-regarded Beryllium tweeter that was previously used in the Dancer line.
