Capital Audiofest

We are pleased with the very good rating of stereophile about our custom & subway at the Capital Audiofest (Thx to http://www.vkmusic.ca):

“An assembled TU-8600 sounded amazing driving a pair of AER twin-paper-cone, full-range drivers in shallow, cleverly made Plexiglas horns (3900 Euros/pair for the drivers, 3200 Euros/pair for the enclosures). Judging from the smooth, wide-range, and altogether non-problematic sound I heard from those 106dB-sensitive, easy-to-drive (16 ohm) German-made loudspeakers, I can only conclude that the best Lowther-like drivers are no longer made by Lowther—far from it.”

The Excenter

The extraordinary design of the Excenter successfully combines the beneficial acoustic properties of spherical horns, open baffles and point sources in a single speaker. The horn is powered by a full-range speaker; a subwoofer takes over only under one hundred hertz. This low crossover frequency has great advantages and was one of the aims in developing the big horn. It is important to note that the human voice in its transmission range, which reaches down to eighty-five hertz in its deepest tones, is transmitted without breakage by just one chassis.

Fusion Exhibition with Lucy

The ceramic exhibition by Gabi Ehrminger and Kenji Fuchiwaki at Ludwigsburg Castle was accompanied by the gentle sounds of our Lucy, which integrated almost invisibly into the exhibition space. At the opening, the Fuchiwaki couple played a piano concerto with German and Japanese songs.

The fusion of art and sound in the frame of the Lapidarium in Ludwigsburg Castle was a very special event for us and we are looking forward to further fusions.

Customer Gallery

In the category “customer gallery” we show the “living rooms” of our customers. Here an exclusive system in Russia. The chain of the absolute top class components  is completed by our BD4 with ecentric horn. Our valued customer is excited and sent us a self-measured frequency response. Our Excenterhorn with BD4 driver delivers a nearly linear frequency response of 80 Hz – 60 kHz.

>History of the system over approx. 25 years

Bernadetta Sunavska listened the Axjet

An article of concert organist Bernadetta Sunavska published after a real music audio event:

Recording organ music is a special challenge for loudspeakers.  The ample acoustics in many church rooms endanger the audibility of quiet and quick passages, whilst the organ’s full sound hopelessly overstrains most speakers.  How often has one turned up the volume whilst listening intensely, only to jump up in panic the next moment to kill the volume when the loud sound set in again?  There is hardly a recording opposing the live experience of a concert to such extent, which is why to me, listening to recorded organ music is an annoyance rather than enjoyment.
I am pleasantly surprised that these questions did not have to be raised in the first place, as a pair of Axjet speakers recently played back a contemporary organ work of almost one hour.  Finally, one could duly enjoy an enormous sound spectrum.  Each and every articulatory detail could be heard, from subtle changes in the acoustic colours to vast tone clusters.  One had the impression to be right at the source of the resulting sound.
With these speakers I have discovered a whole new dimension of listening (not only when it comes to classic music), and that is something I am absolutely grateful for.
