HULGICH AUDIO ANNOUNCES MAESTRO LOUDSPEAKERS
Following the success of their Astor flagship speakers (reviewed here) and Serenade stand-mount loudspeakers (reviewed here), Hulgich Audio challenged themselves to develop a new model which retains the same sonic characteristics as the Serenade, but with a much larger overall presentation.
Nicholas Hulgich told StereoNET:
Following months of development, we’re pleased to announce the Maestro loudspeaker, a new 2 ½ way floor-standing loudspeaker which uses the same drivers as the Serenade.
This new configuration allows us to increase the overall system sensitivity of the speaker to 90db which is also ideal for those with low wattage amplification.
With two identical 6” midwoofer drivers, the effective radiation surface has been increased so that it surpasses that of a single 8” speaker. Hulgich tells us “this allows the midwoofers to reproduce low frequencies with ease”.
Another benefit is that this also minimises distortion at high volume and ensures the same tonal character throughout the frequency range which ensures the listening experience is truly authentic.
The Maestro cabinets have been designed with two identical internal chambers for each midwoofer driver. According to Hulgich this allows more versatility for fine tuning the speakers to the listening room with the ability to close one or both ports if required.
As a great conductor, the Maestro’s have the ability to command the most demanding pieces of music with grace and elegance. Their precise bass, mid-range naturalness and crystal-clear highs, combined with very low distortion and obsessive phase alignment between drivers, the Maestro model offers the listener an accurate, and palpable timbre reproduction.
The Maestro loudspeaker has been optimised for a listening distance of 2.5 meters but in their testing, they say the Maestro's are very forgiving and friendly to rooms of all sizes.
The elegant, timeless look of this model, together with the possibility of choosing its finish, allows the Maestro model to adapt to a great variety of home decorations.
For those with tube amplifiers, Hulgich Audio have designed an optional impedance correction circuit which makes the impedance more linear and valve amplifier friendly.
The Hulgich Audio Maestro which will sell for $5800/pair, will debut at Melbourne's Festival of Sight & Sound, as part of the the upcoming Melbourne International HiFi Show, November 3rd-5th, 2017 at the Pullman Mercure Hotel, Albert Park.
