Saw these traded in Apogee Grand's today - US 85K in 1991.  one of only 7 or 25 pairs ever made apparently.    They were in perfect condition. already sold .  they are HUGE

 

the guy who owned them was driving with 2 pairs of Krell KAS monoblocks, but he is getting old, so he traded them in on a pair of Wilsons and kept one pair of the KAS.

More speakers that, I believe, fit into the 'Spectacular Speaker' category come from the German company Blumenhofer Acoustics.

Again, as a woodwork teacher, I fancy the exotic veneers that have been applied to some of their cabinets. 

 

I may may be interpreting 'Spectacular Speakers' incorrectly, but in my mind, they must be visually arresting/pleasing etc. and I would hope they sound as good as they look! 

 

Make up your own mind, do they fit in this thread?

I like the look of Horns and accept how they sound for what they are!!!IMG_0342.JPG.26b2fedf3e12bff943d6ad9594d31bad.JPG.c0d59e1c51a5bec0be9c9f2a542dade1.JPG

Once heard dual pairs of Magneplanars augmented by those plasma tweeters that Lansche use. They go out to bat frequencies!

Voxativ

987 front mit Schild 1100.jpg

Anyone who thinks a single-driver loudspeaker lacks low-frequency delivery has simply never experienced our award-winning 9.87 System.

This modular hybrid active system consists of two units coupled together to perform seamlessly as one.

  • On top is our acclaimed second-gen passive Pi monitor that can be ordered with drivers of your choice.

  • On the bottom is the mighty Pi-Bass. A woofer extension system that combines the Ripol® speaker design philosophy with our proprietary Acoustic Stealth Technology®. The result is a fully open system that moves close to zero air volume allowing for free placement within a room.

    The lower Pi-Bass module is equipped with 2 x 96dB neodymium woofers each (=99dB). These woofers are extremely fast and are driven by a 250W class A/B plate amp tuned by our electronics team.

Given this unique combination, this system runs semi-active in that the Pi monitors on top need no crossover and are fed directly from the high-level speaker cable taps from a complimentary amplifier like our Voxativ T-211 Integrated (the perfect pairing).

The bottom Pi-Bass woofer module has it's own amplifier and can be driven up to an onboard crossover setting of 120 Hz (recommended) with a full range of EQ to blend into any room.

We suggest a line-level RCA connection from your preamp to the Pi-Bass for highest fidelity (although a high-level speaker cable connection is also possible.)

The result is the most powerful full-range system the industry has ever experienced linear down to 20Hz in low-frequency slam.

I can't help smiling, guys, when I read blurb that spins as hard as Voxativ's.

 

The first line is a cracker. Then it gets worse!

 

cheers
