Not to hijack the thread, but this is some hilarious things i am reading.
Surely cutting 200 unique individual sheets of ply, gluing them piece by piece, machining (takes about a week for one section) , then few months to finish. Yeah it is much cheaper and much easier that pouring stuff into a...
The options are both aesthetics,and performanced oriented.
Let's skip the former...
1.One main option, is the use of a much higher caliber compression driver for the midrange, and a different length midhorn. The specific optional driver is also used in our Contendo speaker, and can be...
The Aurora is an unofficial replacement for Symphonia,which though not obsolete, it will be made in VERY limited pieces.
That said ,the Aurora project was not initially intented to replace Symphonia.It was a personal side project, somewhat proof-of-concept kind of...
The Ianus Series got it's pre-amplifier, the Ageto. Based on our long lived Inverted Triode technology, now on Gen 3, this design is something else.
Shipping out a unit straight to Munich, see and hear the Ageto in Atrium 4.2 / E213 at this year's High End show, 19-22 May
The midbass section is about 450kg alone. Here is a snapshot while filming the assembly instruction video.I am blabbering something about the feet of the midbass.Picture for scale..
This pair is being loaded to be delivered to the owners (18 out of the total 20 crates of the speaker,loaded in the picture).
We will however bring the new kid, the Aurora ,to Munich.
Thank you very much!
You recall correctly:)
Yes the initial design, in early stages, had big active sub sections (100Hz and up), using dual drivers,of the probably best long throw 15'' out there. It was a great sub section, using our tube crossover and over 2kw per channel...
You can imagine, being an electronics company, a quite significant number of active filters were designed.
There are a number or types of active filters in prior art,and we did develop our own type of active system (tech of this type of filters is trickled down to the Aurora...
Thank you for the kind words of support!
I will start describing the design, the other way around, starting from the heart of the system, the crossover.
The four way design is 100% passively driven, and the crossover is passive.
The tweeter covers 2.500~100,000Hz and is filtered by a filter...
Establishing the company 12 years back, with a sole purpose of creating the Contendo MK1, what is IMVHO the best speaker out there. In Feb 2010, I had no idea how big, complicated and elaborate this project would be.
From the creation and design of our electronics, for the task of helping us...
Correct Ked.. Will do some Contendo recording soon, on both versions of Elgar. Need to sort out the space as currently we have two Contendo speakers in one room plus the Aurora speaker prototype (playing above).Yes it is 250sqm coupled to another 250sqm ,but... set up is not exactly ideal.
